This film is about small pleasures in life – Ranjith Belluri
Speaking on the occasion director Ranjith Belluri said, “Our producer Ravindranath Thota owns a consulting firm in New Jersey. I did my masters in USA and went into software profession. I also learnt about filmmaking from NY Film Academy. The story of the film is between an introvert guy and an extrovert girl. We tend to give away small pleasures in life in pursuit of achieving bigger things. This film is about grabbing and enjoying the small pleasures in life. There will not be any formulaic stuff in the film and it will be a quality Telugu movie. Casting of the film took around 4 months. We are introducing a Telugu guy Rohan with this film. The regular shooting will start on 18 of this month.”
Actor Rohan said, “I knew director Ranjith Belluri from my engineering days. I joined theater in NY. He narrated me the story long back. But I was not in his mind then. After listening to the story, I molded my looks to suit the character and shown myself to him. And he casted me. I quit my job to do this film.”
Actress Aditi Chowdary said, “The script of the film is very nice. My character in this film is so lovely that everybody would like to have a friend like me in their life after watching the film. I hail from Delhi.”
Music director Karthik said, “I am basically from Chennai. I worked for a Tamil film in the past. I met the director in Orkut and sent my work. He is impressed and took me in. There are five songs in this film."
