My favourite scene in 'Majili' had to be deleted: Director
A deleted scene from 'Majili' is out on the Internet. It has Posani Krishna Murali, Rao Ramesh, Naga Chaitanya and Samantha sitting across a dining table. The gloomy hero is reluctant to start his lunch. Posani, his father-in-law, says that he will excuse himself if the 'Alludu' is uncomfortable in his presence.
At this, the hero addresses him for the first time in his life as 'Mavayya'. Posani's character has been sad that his daughter (Samantha) and her husband haven't been getting along well. He gets emotional when the son-in-law calls him 'Mavayya'. He erupts into tears out of happiness.
The change in Chaitanya's mood is brought about by the presence of a new pre-teen kid in his life.
Director Shiva Nirvana says that it is his favourite scene in the movie. "We had to delete it to reduce the run-time. The climax had to come at the appropriate time," he says.
