The cast and crew of director K.Raghavendra Rao’s Pandurangadu, starring Balakrishna, Tabu and Sneha in the lead, spoke about the film’s progress at a press meet arranged by the production house.
“This is the first time that I have worked with K.Raghavendra Rao” veteran film maker and actor K. Viswanath said “He maintains a congenial atmosphere even undertense situations. I have learned a lot from him and plan to implement them for my future films.”
“Pandurangadu was an even greater challenge to make than Raghavendra Rao’s earlier films Annamaya and Sri Ramadasu, as it will be compared to the classic Panduranga Mahatyam” lead actor Balakrishna said “The film is inspired from a incident that took place in Maharashtra. Pandurangadu is the result of a perfect team work.”
“I grew up listening to classics like Sri Krishna Mukunda Murari.” Music director M.M.Keeravani said “The original composer of Panduranga Mahatyam, T.V.Raju was born in Kovvuru and so was I. I have composed 16 songs for this film. I dedicate them to T.V.Raju.”
“Pandurangadu has both ‘Rakthi’ and ‘Bakthi’ in equal measures” writer J.K.Bharavi said “we made few changes to the original script of Panduranga Mahatyam. Mohan Babu is portraying an important role in the film. The film’s music will be released on 27th April at the Panduranga Swamy temple in Chilakalapudi”.
