'Prema Desam' stars Thrigun (aka Arun Adith) and Megha Akash in the lead. Ajay Kathurvar, Shiva, and Maya will also be seen in the lead roles. Actress Madhubala is playing the role of a mother. Also featuring Vaishnavi Chaithanya, Thanikella Barani, Viva Harsha, and Kamal Teja Narla, the film has cinematography handled by Sajad Kaakku and music by Mani Sharma.
Ahead of its theatrical release on February 3, its pre-release event was held on Monday in Hyderabad.
Speaking on the occasion, guest and Achampet MLA Guvvala Balaraju said, "I liked the trailer for this movie. It seems the director has done a nice job. Mani Sharma's music is promising. I wish the actors all the best. Lyric writer Alaraju hails from our constituency. Prior to this movie, I had no exposure to the film industry. With this movie, I am getting to connect with youths." The MLA added that he will support the film shoots in terms of easy permissions and other industry-friendly measures.
'HIT 2' director Sailesh Kolanu was another guest at the event. He said that director Srikanth Siddham is a dedicated person. "Srikanth has done a great deal of hard work in making this movie. I wish 'Prema Desam' all the success," the 'Saindhav' maker said.
Madhubala, who will be seen as a mother in the movie, said, "I accepted this project because I loved the director's narration. When the teaser was out, I really liked the way I was presented in it. Mani Sharma's music and songs are very good. I feel lucky to have got to act in this movie."
Director Srikanth Siddham thanked his friends for always being supportive. "The trailer, teaser and songs have generated a positive buzz. I have to really thank Mani Sharma garu on this occasion. He gave beautiful tunes for the movie. Besides the lead actors, I got to act with the likes of Madhubala garu. Thrigun, Shiva, Ajay, Megha Akash have acted really well," he added.
Producer Sirisha Siddham said that she is a software employee who has produced the movie for her elder brother, Srikanth. "The movie is going to be as good as the teaser, trailer, and songs. Everyone will come out watching the movie with an emotional feeling," she added.
Thrigun said, "When the director gave the narration, it really excited me. Madhubala garu acting in it was exciting. I have been doing solo-hero movies. In keeping with the script, I acted alongside Ajay and Shiva. I am glad I got to work under the direction of RGV garu last year and Mani Sharma garu's music direction this year. Music-wise, 'Prema Desam' is going to be a hit."
Actor Ajay thanked 'Arjun Reddy' director Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Gautham Vasudev Menon for releasing the film's trailer. He appreciated the hard work put in by the director and the rest of the cast.
Actor Shiva said, "The director has worked hard for years to get this project right. The visuals are superb. A legend like Mani Sharma garu has composed the music and his background music is going to stand out."
