When one thinks of special songs in movies, the attention automatically goes to glamorous women who gyrate to foot-tapping, catchy numbers. The dancers are usually from Bollywood or other industries. But, a hero doing an item song is bound to surprise moviegoers as it is not really common. After Venkatesh in Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum, and Jr NTR in Chintakayala Ravi, its now the turn of Ram Pothineni who has now chosen to surprise his fans and audiences by opting to appear on-screen in a special number.
As iSmart Shankar turned out to be a box-office bonanza, Ram seems to have developed a strong bond with director Puri Jagannadh as a token of respect and gratitude. Ram has given a positive nod to Puri to rock in a special song in the formers next directorial venture, Romantic, which has Puri Akash in the lead.
When top-notch heroines are obliging to do special songs, why cant the heroes do it too? It all depends on their mutual understanding. It may raise the curtain for a new trend to come out, a senior producer commented. After iSmart Shankar, Puri and Ram combination made it to the big league. If the present news doing the rounds of the film industry is true, Romantic is sure to win hearts.
