Bobby was not the initial choice to direct Venky Mama

Daggubati Venkatesh and Naga Chaitanya starer Venky Mama is all set to release on the 13th of this month. Directed by Bobby, this film features Raashi Khanna and Payal Rajput as the female leads. Already, the songs and the trailer got a good response from the audience. A lot of expectations are riding on this movie.

Meanwhile, producers of the film, Suresh Babu and TG Vishwa Prasad, have organized a press meet yesterday, to discuss the film. Speaking at the meet, Suresh Babu said that Venky Mama is a wholesome entertainer with a lot of comedy and emotional drama.
He revealed that at first, Janardhana Maharshi came up with this idea. After liking it, Suresh Babu has asked Kona Venkat to develop the story on it, keeping Venkatesh in the mind for the lead role. Suresh Babu also said that Kalyana Krishna of Soggade Chinni Nayana's fame was initially considered for the director role for the film.
But, Kalyana Krishna has already signed a film under Annapurna Studios at that time. Thus, Bobby came into the picture. The makers are quite happy with the film's output and are hoping that audiences will like it when it hits the theatres this Friday.
