Dialogue King Saikumar feels that he never got the due share in Telugu industry despite showing much talent and winning two Nandi and a couple of Filmfare awards. During the time he's working as a hero, he struggled a lot as he has to pay unnecessarily a debt of 2 crores. Later on he turned to many character roles, but Saikumar feels that no role is etched with him on mind.
Sharing his thoughts, he stated how his career could have been if he started in a different league. "That was in 1989 and I was confirmed as villain in the debut flick of Ram Gopal Varma. Just a day before shooting, JD Chakravarthy replaced me and you know the applause that role received", said Saikumar, about missing role in RGV's blockbuster debut "Siva". So, what happened later? "I've called Ramu on phone and cried, broke down to tears, asking him why he has replaced me in the last minute", he added. Whether RGV shared any reason for the replacement or not, Saikumar blames his fate for missing a chance in that iconic film as a villain.
He feels that the right appreciation for his Agni role in Police Story has come in the form of Andhra Police appointing him as ambassador for Vijayawada police. That way, the unseen 'lion' from the National Emblem turned nostalgic recalling his journey in filmdom.
