Naga Chaitanya’s latest movie in the direction of Sukumar was launched at a function organized in Annapurna studios today morning. Bunny Vasu is being introduced as a producer on Geeta Arts banner. This is the production no. 31 of Geeta Arts and Allu Arvind presents it. Devi Sri Prasad composes music.
D Rama Naidu did pooja ceremony, Nagababu switched on the camera, Nagarjuna sounded the clapboard, SS Rajamouli directed the first shot and ANR handed over the script.
Allu Arvind said, “I saw the story around two and half years back. Sukumar always narrates his stories first to me. I like Sukumar a lot. He has got 4-5 varied versions for every scene in his movie. We decided to cast Naga Chaitanya as hero prior to the release of YMC. Sukumar narrated the story to Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya . Both of them liked it. I saw Happy Days and booked Tamanna’s dates for Geeta Arts long back. We wanted to cast her for Magadheera and she didn’t suit it. Naga Chaitanya is an intelligent guy. Geeta Arts had done movies with other heroes in the past and we continue to do it in the future too.”
Naga Chaitanya said, “I feel happy to work for Geeta Arts banner. Lots of good technicians are working for this movie and this movie is going to be technically good. I heard that Sukumar is a dedicated director and I realised it when he narrated the script to me. I wanted my third film to be an action entertainer, but changed it after listening to this script. There is something for everybody in this film.”
Tamanna said, “I am doing a straight Telugu film after a year. I am happy to work for Geeta Arts. I am doing a performance oriented role in this movie.”
Sukumar said, “I narrate all my stories to Allu Arvind first. I didn’t have any hero in mind when I penned this story. Only Arya 2 script was made with Allu Arjun in mind. I opined that Tamanna is apt for heroine. I loved Naga Chaitanya’s performance in YMC. It is a romantic action movie. Devi Sri Prasad is giving fabulous music.”
Producer Bunny Vasu said, “Bunny liked the story and recommended it to Allu Arvind. Allu Arvind suggested the name of Naga Chaitanya. I am really happy to produce my debut film in Geeta Arts banner.”
