Kotta Janta Muhurat
Allu Sirish’s second movie opposite heroine Regina Cassandra will be directed by Maruthi and produced by Bunny Vasu on Geeta Arts banner with Allu Aravind as presenter. The muhurat for this film was held on Thursday morning in Hyderabad. Tourism Minister Dr K Chiranjeevi sounded the clap board while Dr D Ramanaidu switched on the camera and Maruthi directed the first shot.
Later speaking in the press meet Allu Aravind said, “Maruthi is known to us for the past 15 years. He is aware of theater pulse which is a rare talent. He narrated this film two months before the release of ‘Gauravam’. It’s is wonderful subject. Bunny Vasu produced ‘100% Love’ and now he is producing this film while I’m going to present it. J.B. is going to provide good music. We are impressed with the camera work in ‘Swamy Ra Ra’ and hence gave an opportunity to the cinematographer. Likewise we will definitely encourage new talent on our banner. Hero need not be from our compound only. We are ready to do films with any hero without budget limit.”
Maruthi said, “I’m really lucky to get the chance to work under Geeta Arts banner for my third film only. I’m a great fan of Chiranjeevi garu right from my childhood days. I’ll carve this film considering it as my first film. Bunny Vasu and Sirish are my good friends. I’m considering this project like a marriage in my family. I believe in the saying that Great people are selfish. Every human-being is selfish but we don’t like to reveal it. This film is about two selfish lovers that tells one should not be selfish to grow up in life. We are giving an under current message for the youth. It’s going to be a laughing riot for two and half hours.”
Sirish said, “I’m very happy to work on our home banner. The entire unit except my father are below the age of 35 years. I thoroughly enjoyed the film ‘Bus Stop’. Bunny Vasu is known to me for the 12 years. Similarly I knew Maruthi right from my school days. I never expected that I would be working with both of them. This film will give me a good commercial break.”
Bunny Vasu said, “Aravind garu believes me more than myself. I’ve learnt a lot from Bunny during these 10 years. Maruthi is known to me for the past 11 years as we did the animation couse together. Sirish is apt hero for this film. We will start the regular shooting from 20 onwards.”
