'King' Nagarjuna launched the teaser of '22' movie, directed by famous PRO and producer BA Raju's son Shiva Kumar B. Rupesh Kumar Chowdary and Saloni Mishra play the lead roles in this movie. Naga Chaitanya also wished the team the best.
On this occasion, a press meet was held and director Maruthi attended it as the chief guest and launched '22' movie calendar. Producer Konda Krishnam Raju also attended this event.
Maruthi said, "I am very happy that Shiva has become a director. He informed me that the first copy will be ready in a week's time. He joined my team as an assistant director and handled the post-production of a movie completely. Like Raju garu, who gives his best for the success of a movie, when it comes to promotions, Shiva also works very hard. Generally, debutante directors go for love stories. But Shiva has opted for a crime thriller subject and directed it very well. It shows his maturity levels. Roopesh, Saloni and every team member worked hard. Nagarjuna sir is one actor, who always encourages new talent. He talked so much about the film after watching the teaser. He liked it. I was shocked watching a web-series directed by Shiva. He is technically good. It's not easy to write a story and translate it on to screen. VV Vinayak and I launched the film. I'm very happy to have attended this teaser launch event. Shiva will be definitely successful as a director. If co-director Pullarao works for a movie, the product will be good for sure. He works sincerely for every movie. I want to watch this movie on the release day's morning show. I wish the team the best".
Hero Rupesh Kumar Chowdary said, "Maruthi garu blessed us during Maa Aai productions logo. I thank for coming again to this event and launching our film's calendar. I'm very very happy that Nagarjuna garu has launched our teaser".

I thank Nag sir on behalf of our whole team. Maruthi garu brought 'Pandaga' to us. Special thanks to him and Konda Krishnam Raju garu. Aditya Music Madhav garu and Niranjan garu supported us a lot regarding the audio. They are also supporting us commercially. The title is very apt for the movie. I thank everyone who is supporting me".
