Senior actor Bhanuchander’s son Jayanth and Swetha Basu as the lead pair, a full-length comedy entertainer ‘Mixture Potlam’ is being made. Kalapatapu Lakshmi Prasad, Kante Veeranna Chowdary and Lankapalli Srinivasa Rao are jointly producing the film under Godavari Cine Tone banner with MV Sathish Kumar as director. The film has wrapped up shooting part and presently busy with post-production works. On this occasion, the film unit has arranged press meet.
One of the producers of the film, Lakshmi Prasad said, “The film ‘Mixture Potlam’ is the first venture on our banner. Even though the film a full-length comedy entertainer, it will have all elements which will connect to audience emotionally. It also has a message to the present society. Comedy scenes between Jabardasth team, Ali, Posani Krishna Murali and Krishna Bhagvan will leave audience in splits. The film has garnered much hype because of Swetha Basu Prasad. Despite being new to acting, all artists have given wonderful performances like senior actors. Director has carved out wonderfully like an experienced person. Everyone in the team has given lot of support for the good outcome of the film. At present, post-production works are going on. We are planning to release the audio very soon and the film will be released in December. I am very sure the film will impress all sects of audience.”
Another producer Lankalapalli Srnivasa Rao said, “Apart from producing, I played a role wonderful role in ‘Mixture Potlam’. Along with Swetha Basu, several senior artists have played in this film. This small budget film came out wonderfully and we are very confident that the film will become big success. Two more films are being made on our banner.”
“Producers have given their nod for the script at the first sitting itself. It’s my privilege that I got wonderful producers who have great passion on films. I have brought wonderful output with their support. ‘Mixture Potlam’ is set in the backdrop of a bus which travels from Amalapuram to Shirdi. We meet different characters in the journey and discuss on different topics. The film also deals with the same concept. The film also touched satirical comedy on politics. Swetha played Suvarna Sundari in the film. Her role which stay for long time in the hearts of Telugu audience like Chintamani and Kanaka Mahalakshmi. Songs came out wonderfully. Kalyan Sami’s camera work will stand out as highlight for the film. I wish and hope that Telugu audience will encourage us by making the film a big success,” said director Sathish Kumar.
Addressing the gathering, Swetha Basu said, “After ‘Kotta Bangaru Lokam’, ‘Ride’ and ‘Kasko’, I am doing this wonderful film. I played Suvarna Sundari, a celebrity, in ‘Mixture Potlam’. It’s not a romantic entertainer. The film deals with the way of thinking of people in the present society. The film passes a useful message to the society.”
During the media interaction, the actress confessed, “I learned classical music during my studies. I got any opportunities during that time. I felt that it may disturb my studies and therefore didn’t show interest. I did journalism and mass communication. I got offers for ‘Makdee’ and ‘Iqbal’. After some gap, I am making my re-entry through this ‘Mixture Potlam’. Presently I am working for Karan Johar’s ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’. I am producing few short films.”
