Mohan Babu's Multistarrer Film Muhurat
Sri Lakshmi Prasanna Pictures and 24 Frames Factory jointly launched a multi-starrer movie on Sunday morning in a temple at Filmnagar in Hyderabad. The film starring Dr Mohan Babu, Manchu Vishnuvardhan Babu, Manchu Manoj Kumar, Varun Sandesh and Tanish in lead roles will be directed by ‘Lakshyam’ fame Srivaas. Ariaana and Viviana are the presenters. K Raghavendra Rao switched on the camera for the muhurat shot while Dasari Narayana Rao sounded the clap box.
Later addressing the media Dr Mohan Babu said, “I’m working as a hero after a very long gap. We have prepared this script based on a Hindi film. Everyone will notice the standard of the film which Mohan Babu is doing as hero after so many years. I watched Srivaas’s ‘Lakshyam’ and I’m impressed with his work in it. I agreed to do this project with due respects on us and our banners. This is first of its kind in Telugu, a movie being made with five heroes. Search is going on for heroines to be cast opposite Tanish and Varun Sandesh. Keeravani composed two songs with due respect on me. The other three songs were composed by Bappa Lahari, Atchu and Baba Sehgal. Vishnu and Manoj are the producers of this film.”
Director Srivaas said, “Dasari garu adviced me to do this film with complete dedication. I’m glad to note that I’m going to work with writers like Kona Venket, Gopi Mohan and BVS for this prestigious movie. Marudhuri Raja provided the dialogues. This is a hilarious entertainer. I’m very happy to receive the support from Mohan Babu garu, Vishnu, Manoj, Varun and Tanish. It may take some time to get the call sheets of so many heroes. Hence we are planning to start the shoot with canning of songs in Europe. Regular shooting will begin soon.”
Kona Venkat said, “Mohan Babu is one such great actor who acted in more than 500 films. He is doing this film with his two sons. Mohan Babu garu did several roles in his film career. So we are making efforts to portray him a role that would surpass his earlier ones. We took up this project as a challenge and trying our best to do justice to all heroes. ‘Denikaina Ready’ was a very big hit. This movie success will be 100 times more than that. Srivaas is a good spectator. He’s a good observer and a good creator. He is a matured director.”
