No time/budget limit for Shakti – C Aswini Dutt
C Aswini Dutt said, “We started Vyjayanthi banner in January 1975 with the blessings of NTR and made the movie Eduruleni Manishi. I am very happy to say that Vyjayanthi has completed 35 glorifying years and I am extremely delighted to start a new movie with 3rd generation NTR in January 2010, exactly after 35 years. I worked with great actors and technicians in this journey of 35 years. And I thoroughly enjoyed the process of filmmaking. There will not be any time/budget limit for Shakti.”

Shakti will be made on grand scale and it will have huge technical standards. This movie will be shot in various locations like Jaipur, Jodhpur, Kashmir, Ladakh, Hampi, Rushikesh, Delhi, Agra, Mysore, Egypt and London. Shakti has a unique concept. It is an ambitious project. The shooting of this movie will start on 5 February in Jaipur. I conceptualised this story in 2003 and registered this title at that time.
