As it was reported earlier, the evergreen stunning beauty Sridevi and romantic hero Nagarjuna had launched Ram Gopal Varma’s forthcoming latest film ‘Katha Screenplay Darsakatvam Appalaraju’ that has comedian turned hero Sunil in the lead.
The film was formally launched today afternoon at Annapurna Studios in Hyderabad. The movie launch event was attended by actress Sridevi, Akkineni Nagarjuna, Sumanth, Rana, and many other Telugu film fraternities.
Sources say that after a long gap of 12 years, RGV is going to wield the megaphone straight for a Telugu film. There is also a buzz that for the first time in this movie, a song will be canned on Sunil using 27 cameras. The regular shooting of the film will commence from September 1st. The movie is produced by Kiran Kumar Koneru under Shreya Productions banner, which earlier produced filma such as ‘Siddham’ and ‘Homam’.
RGV termed it an emotional moment and recalled how he got interested in movies only because of Sridevi. Not forgetting Nagarjuna for giving him the break in the industry, he conveyed his gratitude to both of them for attending the launch of his Telugu film.
One song, a satire on the bigwigs in the highly competitive industry and about the myriad number of hopefuls wanting to get a break as a filmmaker, drew attention as it was played, even as Ramgopal Varma hoped that Telugu film directors took it sportingly, as constructive criticism.
He said the movie held intensely personal moments of his journey to success. It would showcase the travails of those who believed that they were the best and pooh-poohed the successful directors.
While music for the film is scored by Koti, Y. Sudhakar Reddy will work behind the camera. Nagarjuna recalled how he was initially nervous opposite Sridevi in ‘Aakhari Poratam' and how she made him feel at ease. He also said he was game to do a film with RGV again. Sridevi heaped praise on him calling him the greater co-star she worked with, in her career.
