Madala Ravi, son of Revolutionary and Red Star Madala Ranga Rao detailed interview about his aspirations, future projects and much talked controversy..


Being a doctor, what made you to foray into films ?

As my father Madala Ranga Rao is a legendary artist and producer, I got the oppurtunity to act as a child artist in his super hit films Erra Mallelu, Yuvataram Kadilindi, Swarajyam etc., "Nampalli Station Kaadi" song in Erramallelu was a big hit and evergreen song and won many awards for the singer Sailaja Garu and for me as child artist. After that, I was also very interested in films. But my priority at that age was education. So, I did MD in general medicine, DM in Gaestro Entology. 

When I was aboard, I headed various youth organisations and was cultural head for these organisations. 

Tell us about your first movie "Nenu Saitham ?"

Though I was well settled as a doctor and entrepenuer aboard, I came to India with the only aim of continuing progressive cinema like my father and to prove myself as an artist.

Nenu Saitham was my first movie as a hero and producer. It was written by MVS Harnath Rao and directed by Davala Satyam. The story is about the revolt of a common man, who becomes gunman to the chief minister of the state. It is about the atrocities of politicians and rulers and how common man fights against them. 

Continue your journey in films

Second film, "Maa Ilavelpu" where I play a doctors role and the film is about a conflict between progressive attitude, science and god thing. My third film, "Veeragaadha" directed by Allani Sreedhar is about the Historical Telangana armed struggle against the Rajakars.

Then why was there so much gap in your career

After those movies, due to my personal business and responsibilities aboard I had to take gap in movies. 

From 2014, I decided to comeback to film industry in a full pledged manner. I also decided to prove myself as an actor by doing outside banners. I started with Broker 2 for which my role got good response. Then I did a lead crucial role in Panchamukhi which got huge response among the critics and audiences as an actor. I will enact and produce a movie every year in my banner from this year which will be trending with todays generation with high technical values.

Few months back, a controversy raised on you. Tell your views on this issue ?

All allegations are totally false and fabricated. They gave all false complaints on me and misleaded everybody. I didnot commit any crime and confess about that as circulated falsely in certain social media sites. 

I was granted bail and came home the same day but some papers and websites wrote all false stories about the issue. I will fight against them in the court of law. I have full confidence in our judiciary. The entire issue was to defame me for their self interests. 

About your best pals in industry

Hero Gopichand and Director Gopichand Malineni are brothers to me. From Allari Naresh, Aryan Rajesh, Manchu Vishnu, Manchu Manoj, Tarakaratna, Venkat, Tarun, Sreekanth all this batch are close to me. I have healthy relations with everyone especially many directors and producers. My special thanks to director Maddineni Ramesh and Challa Bhanu Kiran for giving me good roles this year.

As said, you have not left your profession as doctor. What are your activities ?

As a doctor, I do free service. I have a clinic in Film nagar, where I see patients regularly. I donot charge for any of my patients. I serve many charitable trusts and NGO's where I render my contributions and I have done highest number of health camps in the state.

What are your hobbies

Watching world cinema is one of my fav hobby. I used to travel alot, Almost I have been to 70 to 80 countries due to conferences. So I am familiar with many languages. I love to read many books.

Tell me about your works as a social activist

As a social activist I participate in all the activities headed by left organisations, CPI and CPM. I am an active person in Prajanatya Mandali which is a cultural organisation to sensitise people against atrocities.

Your further commitments

My recent film "Panchamukhi" was well received. I will seen next in "Aloukika" where Manoj Nandan and Brahmaji also were a part. My character is very crucial and I cannot reveal anything now. I will be a part of many big movies next year. One thing I can say is that, I will be very active in 2015.

Before concluding the interview, Do you have anything to say ?

I was raised up with good ideologies. I am self made man independent from 18th year living in several countries. My only aim is to continue my fathers footsteps in cinema and society and to prove myself as a good artist. I firmly believe that art is not only for art sake but it is to sensitise our society and people for a better change.
