The most eligible bachelor in town Harish Kalyan now plays a not so eligible, laid back-engineering graduate who is pushed into the marriage game. The handsome young actor is cast opposite the talented and gorgeous Priya Bhavani Shankar who will be seen in a fun and fresh look, in a film that is centered around the ‘Matchmaking Ceremony’ that marks an important part of an arranged marriage.
This is the official remake of the Telugu blockbuster film “Pelli Choopulu”, starring Vijay Devarakonda and Ritu Verma. Kaarthikk Sundar, a former associate of director A.L Vijay makes his directorial debut with this film. The shooting commenced this morning (December 11) in Chennai with a Ritual Ceremony attended by the Cast and Crew members. This is an A Studios LLP and Havish Productions’ second film and is produced by Mr.Koneru Satyanarayana and production will be executed by SP Cinemas.
“I am actually going through a mixed feeling of excitement and butterflies in the stomach at the same time,” says director Kaarthikk Sundar, smilingly who brings up a valid reason from his perspective on this.
“When I first saw Pelli Choopulu I was in awe as to how simple and rooted the movie was. I immediately called my best friend since childhood, Harish Kalyan and told him if this film were to be remade in Tamil, he would fit the lead character perfectly. It is funny how the universe listened to that conversation and, here we are. I’m also excited to work with Priya Bhavani Shankar who is playing the female lead as she is a thorough actor and I’ve always enjoyed her performances on screen. The film is purely a content and characters- driven film, which has an effortless natural essence to it. Having mentioned the ‘Naturalness’ factor, we have made certain changes to the script to suit our regional audience’s sensibilities. I want to thank Harish for bringing me on board this beautiful project and my producer Mr. Koneru Satyanarayana for giving me this big opportunity and SP Cinemas for their support in Production to embark on my directorial journey.”
Senior Artiste Nassar initiated the proceedings with the clapboard while Hero Harish Kalyan and heroine Priya Bhavani Shankar took part in the first shot of the film.
