DIFFERENT STROKES Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan strike a familiar chord while enjoying their `together moments'

They are brothers in the same field commercial cinema. But the similarity ends there. While Chiranjeevi's  film career spans three decades, Pawan Kalyan has just started tasting success. While one carries the mantle of a megastar, the other is an analyst of life. While one is vibrant, the other is quiet. The siblings meet for a Take Two and Ranee Kumar listens in.

Chiranjeevi: I was not sure I wanted you to enter movies as an actor or for that matter, into any other part of filmmaking. Ours was not a film family. (Pawan Kalyan nods).

When I called you over to Madras in 1982, it was with the idea of giving you the best possible education. It was too early in life for you to think about your vocation. Honestly, I didn't know what you had in mind then. Did you have something else?

Pawan Kalyan: Like all young boys, I dreamt of the impossible like wanting to be a global explorer. You never know annayya, how intimidated I was of your glamorous presence, though at home, none of us even spoke about films. But, all the while, I secretly admired you and I still do.

Chiranjeevi: Sounds flattering, but then, O God! Were you kids so scared of me? When did I behave like a schoolmaster? I was working three shifts a day then, and I could hardly get to see you, though we all were living under one roof. Your sister-in-law assured me that everything at home was under control. Maybe I should have taken sometime off to know what was on your mind. (Ruefully)

Pawan Kalyan: Don't sound so apologetic. I wasn't quite sure of what I really wanted to be. You know my love for books. I used to be at home, in my room, poring over one book or the other, and I was happy keeping to myself. Remember my first attempt at direction? Ironically, the subject was blood donation.

Chiranjeevi: Seems like I'm in for some shocks today. I call these inhibitions, which ought to be shed. I appreciate your diligence at work, be it direction or acting, But it should definitely not be at the cost of avoiding food. Why should you become so serious with an assignment on hand? You ought to enjoy acting.

Pawan Kalyan: But, that's me. I feel I have to give my best, hence the 100 per cent concentration. Since I owe even the decision of my career to you and my sister-in-law, I can't help feeling the way I do. I'm too happy to look up to you for everything in life but how can I equate myself with you?

Chiranjeevi: Accepted. But look at the way I mingle with the public who come to watch a shoot. I want you also to vibe with anybody and everybody like that. Only when you warm up to people can you evoke a similar response from them.

Pawan Kalyan: It takes time for me to get familiar with a crowd. I cannot be as spontaneous as you are with strangers. I bear the brunt of being dubbed `haughty'. But there is something within me, which refuses to allow me to wear my heart on my sleeve.

Chiranjeevi: Did I ever ask you to rate me as an actor?

Pawan Kalyan: (Looking confused) Me rating you? No way. On the other hand, I want to know your opinion about my acting.

Chiranjeevi: You are a fine actor but I feel you should let go especially in the dance sequences and stunts. Be like me here. Don't worry about copying me. Give the audience what they want be it my way or otherwise.

Pawan Kalyan: I have come to realize that. But, I should not duplicate Chiranjeevi.

Chiranjeevi: (Emphatically) I appreciate your effort at projecting yourself differently from me. But there is nothing wrong in rising to people's expectations. Therein lies success. Don't bother about what is not your jurisdiction. Leave it to the technicians, directors and others. You get immersed in your role, in the dance sequences and the fights. Try to enjoy what you are doing and you'd have given your best.


Pawan Kalyan: I guess every actor has to understand the pulse of the audience. I'm in the process of learning it, thanks to you, annayya. You were always there for me, will always be. Shall we head to mom's place for our Sunday get-together?

Chiranjeevi: I'll call her up and she'll prepare a special dish for you, me and the others. No more talking shop. (He hugs him).

Pawan Kalyan: (With a twinkle in his eye) Charan (Chiranjeevi's son) has to vie with me for your affection. That's where I am always, yours lovingly.
