In the process we have to fight against the evil that’s existing within us.” The shooting is currently progressing at Manikonda in Hyderabad. On this occasion a press meet was organised at the shooting location in which Nani, Amala Paul, director Samudrakani, producers K S Srinivasa Rao, Sivaraman, Vennela Kishore, art director Jackie and others.
Hero Nani said, “My character in this film is such that an actor with the experience of having done 40-50 films should only do. However, the director offered me this role by trusting my skills. Hence I consider myself lucky. I’m playing a dual role which is challenging. ‘Jendapai Kapiraju’ is a sign of victory and war. War against bad is this film about. We are confident that this film would definitely be a good film. We have shot a song and few key scenes in the first schedule. The 2nd schedule began recently with shooting of talkie.”
Amala Paul said, “My character will connect well with every girl. I’m playing a de-glamour role, yet a good one. Director Samudrikani designed my character in a realistic manner. I thank my director and producers for giving me good opportunity.”
Director Samudrakani said, “My best friend who can’t lie suddenly left India and went to America. When I asked him the reason, he replied saying that it’s difficult to live in a corrupted country. So his words have inspired me to develop this story. Nani is a realistic hero and knows about the difficulties of a middle class people. Therefore I was confident that he would do complete justice to the film.”
