Stylish and sensible filmmaker Paruchuri Murali’s latest directorial venture is ‘Aatagallu’. Vasireddy Ravindra, Vasireddy Sivaji, Makkena Ramu and Vadlapudi Jithendra are jointly producing the film under Friends Movie Creations banner. Young hero Nara Rohith and Jagapathi Babu are playing titular roles in this intelligent thriller. ‘Game For Life’ is the tagline. The film launch event took place at Ramanaidu Studios in Hyderabad on October 11 in a grand level in the presence of some prominent people of the film industry.
Sekhar Kammula played the clap boy role, while Dil Raju switched on the camera for the muhurat shot which was canned on Nara Rohith and Jagapathi Babu. VV Vinayak has directed it.
Speaking on the occasion, Nara Rohith said, “For the first time I am sharing the screen space with Japathi Babu garu. Jagapathi Babu and I have special voices. This is the second time I am working with Vijay C Kumar garu and seventh film with Sai Karthik. ‘Aatagallu’ is a different, experimental and commercial film. I am eagerly awaiting the shooting. The story of the film runs between two intelligent persons.”
On this occasion, Jagapathi Babu said, “The title is very impressive. ‘Aatagallu’ has ‘Game For Life’ as the tagline. Murali is my favourite director since the time of ‘Pedababu’. That film was blended with all elements like songs, comedy and seriousness. It should have become bigger hit. I would always ask Murali to make bigger hit film than that. I am sure, ‘Aatagallu’ will become bigger hit than ‘Pedababu’. Along with Rohith and me, two other actors are also art of the lead cast. Rohith and I will do fun while dubbing (Laughs).”
Addressing the gathering, Paruchuri Murali said, “Two heroes Nara Rohith and Jagapathi Babu were very much mpressed by the script and accepted to act in this. They both have special voices. ‘Aatagallu’ is a distinct film. We are planning to complete the film in two schedules. Regular shooting will start from the next month. The film will have all essential elements including comedy element also. I have learned a lot from cameraman Vijay.”
