He shared his thoughts on his work as well as his exciting future in Telugu film industry. He hopes audience will like ‘Thikka’ which is releasing on August 13. Here is what he had to say: “My name is Shake Dawood. I am originally from Chennai. My biggest passions are films and therefore I did film diploma course in Australia and started an Ad agency and made over 50 Ad films. When I was making trials to provide screenplay to films, Krishna Vamsi garu has given me the opportunity to provide screenplay for ‘Mogudu’. After that I worked in the screenplay department for ‘Venkatadri Express’ and ‘Express Raja’. Presently, I am working for ‘Thikka’. I consider myself lucky for providing story and screenplay for ‘Thikka’. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to hero Sai Dharam Tej and producers Rohin Reddy garu for encouraging me by trusting the fresh story and to the director Sunil Reddy garu for presenting the story wonderfully. I am thankful to all artists and technicians who worked for the film. I wish and hope audience will encourage me by making the film a big success like my earlier films. I know that Telugu industry will always encourage talented people. I am thankful to Telugu film industry,” said Sheik Dawood.
