SV Krishna Reddy on title changing spree
When things go wrong, the sentiments take a lead over logic. SV Krishna Reddy, who is in a bad shape, due to incessant flops is reeling under pressure to give a proper title. The buyers and distributors take over the project and demand SV Krishna Reddy to change the title. That's what happened to his latest film under production with Soundarya, JD Chakravarthy and Prakash Raj in the main leads. Initially, he planned Swarnayugam with the same star cast, but retracted later. He started a love story and tentatively titled it as 'Pelliki Velayara' in the lines of 'Premaku velayara'. Again, he changed it to 'Cheyi Cheyi Kalupu', inspired by a song in 'Premaku Velayara'. In the last week, SV Krishna Reddy made another announcement that the film's title is changed to 'Premaku Swagatam'. It's surprising to see an experienced director like him to keep on changing the title of the film. If the film is a well made one, it would run. What's there in the name?
