Dasari while speaking, “After about 6 years gap I directed this film. At one point of time we provided many artists to Indian film industry. And now it is just the reverse. We are importing artists from other states. There is no shortage of talent in our State. So I decided to do a film with complete cast who are Telugu speaking persons. That is the reason why I selected 81 new artists from Andhra Pradesh for ‘Young India’. I find it interesting while working with new artists. According to me self-discipline is more important than talent and I am happy to say that this team has got that. I entered the film industry with empty hands and came up to this level with the encouragement of people. So I humbly request all of you to encourage these 81 new artists who also stepped into the film industry like me.”
