In an interview, Tollywood director Ram Gopal Varma said Praja Shanthi Party founder K A Paul will be apt for AP Chief Minister’s post. Asked why his reason was that he can laugh when Paul speaks nonsense. To a question, RGV stated that he selected Sri Teja for Chandrababu Naidu’s role in Lakshmi’s NTR after conducting auditions. Varma said Sri Teja suited for role of Chandrababu in the movie. He further said that he likes controversies and picks up controversial stories for films.
