In a new interview, Nagarjuna Akkineni accused Telugu films and lyrics of being ‘sexual’ and ‘encouraging pursuit of love’. He said that the real essence is lost in translation.
While Nagarjuna admitted that some films were a crime of gender for ‘the world is not the right place’, the ‘majority’ said that was not the case.
Speaking to Film Companion, Nagarjuna said, “Telugu is like that, if you translate it into English, it would be very sexist. I also talked to many people trying to parse this. Pankarraju songs are clean folk tunes … if you translate those lines it will be like this … that is, if you translate into English the lyrics that are most beautiful when written in Telugu. , Are you going to bed with me tonight? ‘ They translate like that but if you look at it, you see Telugu women singing.
“Some films just keep doing what you say. The world is not the right place, it will happen. But the majority is not like that, ”he added.
Nagarjuna is currently preparing for the release of a Telugu film titled Bangarraju starring alongside her son Naga Chaitanya. The second part of the 2016 hit Sokkade Chinni Nayana is directed by Kalyan Krishna Kurasala. It stars Ramya Krishnan and Kriti Shetty, and is set to open in theaters on January 14 amid fears of Omigran.
