Audience's verdict matters the most to me: Sunil Varma

Chennai, Feb 25 (IANS) It's not the critics' views or box office numbers that matter to Telugu actor Sunil Varma, he is more concerned about the audience's verdict.

"I'm an actor made by the audience, therefore their verdict matters the most to me. If audiences love the film, then everything else will be in favour of the film," Sunil told IANS. "It's the final verdict of audiences that decides the fate of movie at the box-office."

Right now he is awaiting the release of his romantic-comedy "Mr. Pellikoduku". Coming out March 1, it is a Telugu remake of Hindi hit "Tanu Weds Manu" that had R. Madhavan and Kangna Ranaut in the lead roles.

"The film is not a frame-to-frame copy of the original. We've made minor changes to the script to suit the nativity. There is a good mix of comedy and romance to draw attention of audiences from all categories", said the actor.

Asked if he has shed his comedian image in the film, he said: "I'm always a comedian at heart. Even as lead actor, my films 'Maryada Ramanna' and 'Poola Rangadu' had good amount of comedy in it and audiences loved it. This film too has lot of scope for comedy."

Devi Prasad has directed the film and Isha Chawla plays the role done by Kangana in the original.

Vincent, Ali, Ravi Babu, L.B Sriram, Dharmavarapu Subramanyam and M.S Narayana too feature in the cast.

R.B. Chaudhary has produced "Mr. Pellikoduku", which has music by S.A. Rajkumar.
