About trailer's response
After entire shooting part is completed, we are coming as a small surprise for Sankranthi. Trailer is getting very good response. We didn't expect such huge response. It is due to press only our film is getting very good buzz in short time.
One day Supriya Garu called me and told me about this film. I immediately agreed to do this film after listening to the story. I liked it very much. That's how 'Rangula Raatnam' started.
I will be seen as a middle class boy. But, I will sport new look, getup in this film. My character in 'Rangula Raatnam' is very different compared to all my earlier films and I believe this character will get me very good name.
About 'Annapurna Studios' productions production values
I was in Direction department when I did my first film 'Uyyala Jampala' as a Hero. I was little tensed then. Now I am doing Hero role. Everything will be assured when we are doing a film in a big production house like 'Annapurna Studios'. Even though the team is filled with new cast, technicians, they make sure that everything goes well. When it comes to comes to quality they never compromised till they deliver desired output. I am very happy to do 'Rangula Raatnam' with Annapurna Studios after 'Uyyala-Jampala'
About Sankranthi competition
Three big films got released for last year's Sankranthi and emerged as winners. We will face competition every week. We have holidays for Sankranthi. Entire Family will go to theatre to watch films. Our film will be a clean entertainer which can be enjoyed for two hours by all sections of audiences. I wish all Sankranthi films become successful and I wish our film will be one among them.
It's a beautiful story with mother sentiment. There is a lot of freshness in love scenes between the lead pair. Everyone will get connected to this story.
About working with a lady director
There is no difference between male and female. Director is director. They have their own thoughts in their own point of view which will be reflected in script. Shree Ranjani worked for a long time with director Selva Raghavan. She knows everything about direction. Very passionate director with a very good command. She's very particular about what she wants. Shree Ranjani has all qualities to become a successful director.
About your involvement
After finalising the story, I don't involve at any stage. I will give suggestions only if they ask me.
Trailer is getting amazing response. Very happy that trailer gets highest views in social media.
We considered many titles but none of them suited for the story. We discussed that something from the story would be more apt and came up with 'Rangula Raatnam'.
Sri Charan who composed music for 'Kshanam' gave beautiful music for this film. Six songs came out very well. He composed tunes with completely new sounds. I wrote a song in this film. He gave wonderful re-recording for this film. Sri Charan's music will be very helpful for this film.
For the first time Chitra Shukla is playing the role of a heroine. She played the character of a girl who has sommany responsibilities. How love started between a free spirited boy and a responsible girl forms the story. Film is filled with emotions and entertainment.
This is a pure love story. Youth and families will instantly get connected to this film. I already watched the first copy of the film. I liked it very much. I am confident that audience will like it too.
About other characters
Sitara Garu played the role of my mother in this film. Priyadarshi played the role of my friend. He performed very realistically. Film has situational comedy. Entire film will be entertaining.
