Chennai: Actor Rana Daggubati, known for movies such as 'Leader' and 'Dum Maaro Dum', says although he welcomes what film critics write, he never gets influenced by them.
"Critics represent one body of people and I always respect and welcome their criticism. I don't keep track every critics' point of view. I do take the effort to follow select critics, but never get influenced by their views," Rana told IANS.
He further said that irrespective of the number of critics, it all boils down to personal choice.
"We have varied kinds of critics today who provide measured calculation about the performance of a film and the actors in it. It doesn't matter how many critics are present because at the end of day, it is a matter of personal choice," added the 27-year old actor.
Rana, who hasn't had a successful film in a while, has pinned all hopes on his Telugu action-thriller 'Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum', which released worldwide November 30.(This story has not been edited by News18 staff and is published from a syndicated news agency feed)
