Vaisakham Press Meet
First look launch event of ‘Vaisakham’ which is being made under RJ Cinemas banner, was held on Monday i.e. on May 30 in Hyderabad. Dynamic lady director Jaya B, who presented super-duper hit films like ‘Chantigadu’, ‘Gundamma Gari Manavadu’ and ‘Lovely’, is directing this film with BA Raju as producer. The film’s songs shooting took place at Kazakhstan for 15 days. ‘Vaisakham’ is the first Telugu film which had its shooting in the country Kazakhstan.
Producer BA Raju said, “You all know that ‘Lovely’ which was delivered from our banner, was a big hit. It has celebrated 100 days function in 12 centers. ‘Vaisakham’ is the film which is being made on our banner after a long wait, with the intention to bring much better subject and hit film than ‘Lovely’. We have wrapped up 60% shooting till date. With the suggestion of cinematographer Subbarao garu, we have made a song in digital during the time of ‘Chantigadu’. Our banner bags the credit of picturising with digital technology. D Suresh Babu too appreciated our attempt after watching the song. I am sure ‘Vaisakham’ songs will impress music buffs. 3 songs of the film were shot Kazakhstan, which was bifurcated from Russia, for 15 days. Director Jaya B, cinematographer Subbarao garu along with the team are working hard for the good outcome of the film. Senior actress Amani garu and Sai Kumar garu will appear in major roles. Prudhvi played the key role and his role will be very different. ‘Vaisakham’ will earn good name to Kasi Viswanath garu than ‘Nachavule’. The film is being made with nearly Rs 8 Crores budget. We are making the film without compromising in any aspect.”
Cinematographer Valisetty Venkata Subbarao said, “I did many experiments on digital picturization since 15 to 16 years, but didn’t work out. Later, I approached Jaya garu and with her support I have introduced digital technology. In this film, I am introducing Robotics technology. We have canned 3 songs in Kazakhstan for 15 days at minus degrees climate conditions. Vasanth garu has given excellent music. Harish and Avanthika have given wonderful performances. I am thankful to Raju garu and Jaya garu for giving me this opportunity.”
Hero Harish said, “This is my first film as hero. I am very happy that I got the opportunity to work with a wonderful director. I feel it is a good launch for me. I am thankful to Raju garu and Jaya garu for giving me this opportunity.”
Addressing the gathering, Jaya B said, “We have started ‘Vaisakham’ with a controlled budget. Now, it became big canvas film. Each and everyone in the team is working hard for the good outcome of the film. We decided to make the film differently and as part of this we searched for different locations and finally selected the country Kazakhstan. We have canned 3 songs in Kazakhstan for 15 days at minus degrees climate conditions. We also used gimbal skeleton. This is first Indian film which used this. Now coming to the story of the film, it is a love story laced with family relations. The story is perfectly apt to the title. We are planning to release the trailer soon. I am sure the film will impress everyone.”
