Cheekati Rajyam First Look Launch
Universal Hero Kamal Haasan as the lead, ‘Cheekati Rajyam’ is being made under Raajkamal Films International banner. Prakash Raj, Thrisha, Kishore and Sampath are playing major roles. The film is being made under Rajesh M Selva with N Chandra Haasan as producer. Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan has launched the first look of the film on 24th of May at Film Nagar Culture Centre in Hyderabad.
Speaking on the occasion, Kamal Haasan said, “Whenever I used to meet my Telugu fans, they would constantly ask when I will do straight Telugu film. I used to say that it will happen soon. Now, by starting this film, I’ve kept my word. Rajesh is making his debut as director through this film. I think, I’m like Balachandar for him. Including ‘Uttama Villain’, I’ve worked for 37 films with Balachandar. I’ve taken all his characteristics from him. Abburi Ravi approached me and said about his interest to work with me and therefore I’ve given him the opportunity through this film. Cinema is like a democratic element. No one can say it as their own. For example, in the film ‘Sholey’ I remembered Gabbar Singh than hero. I’m sure the film will entertain the audience for 2 hours.”
Director Rajesh M Selva said, “I’ve started working on Raajkamal Films International banner in 2008 and now I’m making my debut as director. It’s my privilege to get the chance to direct Kamal Haasan. I’ll keep up the trust which Kamal Haasan has kept on me.”
“Kamal is like a great river. When Kamal Haasan approached me regarding this film, I suggested him that Telugu audience will feel happy if you do straight Telugu film. It happened now,” said Prakash Raj.
Thrisha shared, “I consider myself lucky to get the opportunity to share the screen space with Kamal Haasan. My role in the film is totally away from all the role which I’ve done till now.”
