Mega Prince Varu Tej, who carved a niche for himself within a short span of time by choosing different stories, is playing the lead role in ‘Fida’. The film has been taken off on Friday (August 5) at Banswada in Nizamabad district. Dil Raju and Sai Pallavi sounded the clap board, while Pocharam Srinivas Reddy Minister of Agriculture in Telangana switched on the camera.
Dil Raju is producing the film on Sri Venkateswara Creations banner. Shekar Kammula, who impressed youth as well as family audience with his gripping stories, is handling the direction. Sai Pallavi, who has delighted the audiences by her wonderful performance with Malayalam film ‘Premam’, is being introduced as lead actress to the Telugu film industry.
Later in the press meet, director Shekar Kammula said, “The film is being carved out with a cute love story. After ‘Godavari’, I didn’t attempt to do a full-fledged love story. We got a youthful story for this entertainer. Varun and Sai Pallavi’s duo is very amazing. Both actors are very talented. I am very excited to work with Dil Raju garu.”
Naga Babu said, “Dil Raju has great passion on film. Any hero wants to team up with Dil Raju. Shekar Kammula is specialist in making feel good films. I am very happy that Varun is teaming up with the great combination of Dil Raju and Shekar Kammula. I wish all the best to ‘Fida’ team.”
On this occasion, Dil Raju said, “Shekar is working on this script since one year. I was very excited while listening to the script and accepted to produce this film. Director has observed the potential of Varun Tej by watching his acting skills in ‘Kanche’. We all know that all audience became fida by watching Sai Pallavi’s characterisation in ‘Premam’. We felt that these actors will be perfectly apt to the script and roped them to play lead roles. It is the love story between America guy and girls who brought up in Telangana area. I am extremely confident that ‘Fida’ will stand out as a sensational love story on our banner. ‘After ‘Dill’, ‘Arya’ and ‘Kotta Bangaru Lokam’, I am coming up with yet another fresh love story. Regular shooting will continue from today for 40 days in Baswada and after that we will fly to America for another schedule.”
Sai Pallavi said, “This is my first film in Telugu. I am very hapy to be working under Dil Raju garu’s banner for my first film. Varu is a nice co-star.”
