Actor Teja Sajja talks about his journey to becoming a devotee of Lord Hanuman after his 2024 film HanuMan.

The breakout box-office success of his 2024 film HanuMan has led to his life becoming intrinsically linked with the god, feels actor Teja Sajja. The film follows a man getting powers akin to those of that Lord Hanuman.

While working on the film, the actor says he could sense the deity’s blessings. “Over the two-year journey, our work was only 30-40%. The rest was all Lord Hanuman’s doing. Everything we did turned out to be the best for our project — even the biggest mistakes turned out in our favour,” shares the 29-year-old.

Growing up, his devotion towards Hanuman wasn’t as strong as it is today, he shares, “It wasn’t like I would do pooja, or go to mandir. I was not a staunch believer, I wouldn’t make such plans. But after the film, my connection with Lord Hanuman strengthened.”

What’s one quality that he wishes to imbibe from Hanuman? “Humility — when you know you are the most powerful person, but act like you are not. I wish to become as humble as Lord Hanuman,” the actor wraps up.
