Siva Kesav Audio Release
‘Siva Kesav’ starring Srihari in pivotal role and Bhanuchander’s son Jayanth as hero is taking shape under the direction of R V Subrahmaniam with music by Sri Vasanth. Bhanuru Nagaraju (Jadcharla) is producing it on Seetarama Films banner. Audio launch took place on Saturday night in Hyderabad. Srihari released the banner logo while the title logo and audio CDs were released by Babu Mohan. Srihari unveiled the curtain raiser of Aradhana Foundation.
Srihari said, “Siva Kesav is being made with good commercial values. So far I’ve done about 300 films and saw several producers who think about their profits. However, producer Nagaraju is more concerned about the daily bread of the technicians. My second was ‘Chaitanya Ratham’ in 1986 in which I played a small role alongside Bhanuchander. Jayanth appeared very tender behind the camera but is sharp and energetic in front of the camera. Tiger is born to tiger. I’m seeing the fire in Jayanth which I had during the initial stage of my career. A song was written on my name too. Sri Vasanth rendered very fine music. I’m looking handsome in this film and did few dances too.”
Director Samudra commented, “Director Subbu is my student who assisted me in ‘Evadaithe Nakenti’, ‘Vijayadasami’, ‘Venkatadri’ and another film too. I wish him to become a great director.
Director Subbu said, “I’m lucky to get a powerful producer as he is the main reason for my film turning out to be rich. Sri Vasanth rendered six tunes the very next day of listening to the story. I okayed all of them. Output of the film is great.”
Heroine Gurlin said, “Director Subbu worked as assistant director for the film ‘Oka Pellam Muddu Rendo Pellam Vaddu’ for which I worked. I’m very happy to be part of this film. I did a small role. I’m very happy to have worked with Srihari garu.”
Jayanth said, “The movie’s output is greater than what I expected. Director did a wonderful job. He is more sentimental. I like pub song very much. Sri Vasanth gave wonderful tunes. Venu Paul master did excellent choreography. I was initially scared to act with Srihari garu and Nagababu garu. But they made me feel comfortable. Sanjjaanaa is a good co-star. We all enjoyed shooting in Bangkok.”
Producer Bhanooru Nagaraju said, “I will do another film with the same team. We are planning a movie with a prominent hero under Samudra’s direction. This is my first straight movie. I’m doing this film only because I was impressed with the sincere approach of the director. My first film as distributor was ‘Sambayya’. Hence I promised to do this film if Srihari agrees to do. My friends are giving me a moral support. I don’t owe even a single paisa to my technicians.”
