We’re even planning to release the first look soon. It’s a comedy-drama with a Godavari backdrop. We’ve finished the 3rd schedule of it recently. Shot in the amazing locations of Yanam, Kakinada, Godavari. The last schedule of the movie is to wrap up soon. Melody Brahma Manisharma has scored 5 extraordinary songs for the album with a beautiful song written by the late Sri Sirivennela Seetharama Shastry Garu.
Director Clax said, “It’s a Dramedy genre movie. You’ll witness a new performer in Kartikeya in this film. We took a village as the base of the story and filled it with out-n-out fun and emotions. It has strong content and hilarious comedy too. Kartikeya will be seen in the role of a free-spirited person. Will he compromise for society’s compulsion or not shall be witnessed on-screen.”
