I entered into the film industry as an exhibiter and later turned into distributer and after that became producer. So far I have distributed over 100 films. I have given support to Telugu producers while they are producing Kannada films. As a producer, my last films is ‘Chandra Chakori’ in 2004. Now, after a long gap, I made my re-entry through this film. Vijayendra Prasad garu is the reason for why I am doing this film in Telugu. With his suggestion, we are making this film in Telugu and Kannada. Mahadev has kept his heart and soul for the good outcome of the film. I request Telugu audience to encourage my son by making ‘Jaguar’ a big success. I am extremely confident that the film will stand out as the best film in 2016 releases. From now on I will make at least one film a year.”

When Vijayendra Prasad garu approached my father, he assured my father that he will take care of me like his son. I still remember those words. He readied a wonderful script. Mahadev has kept his heart and soul for the good outcome of the film. Manoj Paramahamsa has provided beautiful cinematography. Did my bit perfectly. I wish and hope that Telugu audience will encourage me by making the film a big success.”
