S K Pictures banner which earlier delivered dubbed movies like ‘Premisthe’, ‘Shopping Mall’, ‘Journey’, ‘Naanna’, ‘Renigunta’ and ‘Pemalo Padithe’ is now coming up with yet another new film, ‘Pizza’, a romantic thriller directed by Karthik Subbaraju in Tamil. P Samanya Reddy is co-producing the film while Charitra Chitra is presenting it. The recording of songs was recently completed in Chennai. On this occasion a press meet was organised to brief the details of the post-production works. Suresh Kondeti of SK Pictures, music director Santosh Narayan, lyricist Sahiti, singer Haricharan and hero Vijay Sethupati participated.
Hero Vijay Sethupathi said, “I’m very happy to be introduced in Telugu with ‘Pizza’ which became a super hit in Tamil. I’m even happy to note that my film is going to be released in Telugu through SK Pictures banner. The post-production works are going on at brisk pace in order to deliver the film as quickly as possible. I hope the Telugu version will earn me recognition as much as it did in Tamil. This is a different kind of horror film quite contrast to the films in the past. Director Karthik Subaraju’s taking is wonderful. Even though it’s called as a romantic thriller, ‘Pizza’ will attract the family audience too. The recording of songs for the Telugu version got completed recently. I’m impressed with the songs though I can’t speak the language because I listen to Telugu songs regularly. Santosh Narayan provided good music. Ramya Nambeesan is a very good actress and grasps the scenes quickly. Actor Siddharth, Tamil actor Siva Karthikeyan and director Nargunam have appreciated my performance in the film. I believe that the Telugu audience will also like my performance. I request the audience to watch the film in theater and enjoy.”
Music director Santosh Narayan said, “I believe that the Telugu audience will like my music just the way Tamil audience liked it. I’m very happy to provide music for both Tamil and Telugu versions of ‘Pizza’ directed by Karthik Subbaraju. I hope this movie which is releasing through SK Pictures banner will be successful like in Tamil.”
Lyricist Sahiti said, “After successful film like ‘Journey’, this is my second film in the combination of SK Pictures banner, not just in writing lyrics but also the dialogues. All songs have turned out to be good as per the situations. There are six songs in the film and 8 in audio CDs. Suresh Kondeti garu bought the rights of this film amidst huge competition. I wish ‘Pizza’ will be a huge hit like earlier films under SK Pictures banner.
Singer Haricharan said, “I sang the song ‘Ratri Velalo…’ in this film and earlier sang three songs in movies like ‘Premisthe’, ‘Shopping Mall’ and ‘Naanna’ under SK Pictures banner. Our combination had already made hattrick and with the fourth song it’s heading towards the next hattrick. I thank Suresh Kondeti garu for giving me this opportunity. ‘Pizza’ was a sensational hit in Tamil. After making few short films, Karthik Subbaraju directed this film for the first time and became successful. Music director Santosh Narayan provided wonderful music to the film. I hope the Telugu version music will be a big hit like the Tamil version.”
S K Pictures Suresh Kondeti while speaking, “Starting from ‘Premisthe’, our banner became successful in providing good movies like ‘Shopping Mall’, ‘Naanna’, ‘Journey’ and ‘Premalo Padithe’ to the Telugu audiences. ‘Pizza’ is the biggest hit of 2012 in Tamil. So far I’ve seen over 1000 thriller films in my life, but I’ve not seen a film like this. I’m confident that this film will attract the movie lovers. We have just completed the recording of songs. Santosh Narayan’s music is excellent. Audio will be released in the month end and the movie in 2nd week of December. For the first time we have used the 7.1 technology in recording of songs. This sound effect will thrill the audience in theaters. ‘Pizza’ is sure to increase the prestige of our banner.”
