The pre-release event of 'Iddari Lokam Okate', starring Raj Tarun, Shalini Pandey and presented by Dil Raju under Sri Venkateswara Creations banner, was held at Chaitanya college in Hyderabad on Saturday.
Speaking at the event, Dil Raju said, "'Kerintha' event was also held at Chaitanya college. We had a special screening of 'Iddari Lokam Okate' for this college students and got a very good response from them. We are going to hold special shows in Nellore on Monday, Vizag on Tuesday and Melbourne on Wednesday. It's been a journey of two years for this movie. We liked director Krishna's idea. We thought of making this movie with three other heroes. But it didn't work out. I gave up. But the director said Raj Tarun liked the story and agreed to do the film. Raj Tarun came to me then after and the project went on floors. Top technicians like Mickey J Meyer and Sameer Reddy worked for this movie. We considered three or four names for the heroine's role. But Sirish suggested Shalini Pandey and brought her on board. Raj Tarun's look was bettered after Shalini's entry into this project. The chemistry between worked out wonderfully. I didn't like the first half and said the same to the director. He made some changes and I loved the final product. Students echoed my feeling about this movie. First half will be like a time pass entertainer. The second half, especially the climax will be very good. It's a genuine film. After 'F2' and 'Maharshi', we are eyeing a hat-trick with this movie".
Raj Tarun said, "'Iddari Lokam Okate' is a beautiful love story. Everyone will love it. Watch it only in theaters. Please don't encourage Piracy". Director G.R.Krishna said that it is the journey of a couple from their birth to their death. The film will release on 25th December. Producer Bekkem Venugopal and other unit members attended this event.
