The fact that the film is releasing in his banner spells success for it and we are very happy. Shanvi will be seen in a role she has never played before and the story revolves around her. It was a challenge to write dialogeus for Rakshit Shetty. Director Sachin has written an amazing screenplay. Ajneesh Loknath’s music and background score.
will be well-received. The film has an interesting story of a treasure hunt. The film is a period film made in the cowboy space and is of a very distinct genre that the audiences will love.”
Shanvi Srivastava said “I am back in front of the Telugu audience after almost five years and I am so excited. I didn’t sign any film for almost a year and a half after Rowdy. With the audience’s support, I came back and have taken up some interesting projects. I am so glad to be back with such a huge film again.”
Actor Rakshit Shetty said, “I hail from Udupi. While studying engineering, I had a friend called Vamsi Krishna who introduced me to Telugu. It was only with him that I shared my dreams of becoming an actor. Both of us used to watch short films together and enjoyed the films of Venkatesh, Nagarjuna and Chiranjeevi but never understood the difference. It was Vamsi Krishna who showed me how passionate a person can be towards films. After I entered cinema, I understood how much the audience here loves and accepts cinema. That is the reason I decided to release the film in Telugu too. This is a labour of love of these years. I am excited to see how the audience accepts this. I am thankful to Ramajogayya Sastry garu for writing the lyrics and Dil Raju garu for the lyrics.”
Ramajogayya Sastry spoke at the event and said, “I welcome Rakshit Shetty to Telugu cinema. Any artiste would want to reach a maximum number of people and this is one such attempt. Rakshi Shetty garu worked hard for three years to make this film and it is his efforts that are taking this film to five languages. The film will be accepted as widely as Baahubali and KGF. I thank Dil Raju garu for releasing the film. All the songs will gel well into the film. I hope the audiences enjoy the film.’
