Happy Days is going to change cinematic perception of college youth – Sekhar Kammula
Sekhar Kammula said, “I described my earlier films as my daughters. My next film ‘Happy Days’ will be like my son. Happy Days will be more forceful compared to my earlier films. The first hurdle for any of my films is to decide whether a story is good enough to make as film. Happy Days passed that hurdle. There is a comment that I make films that appeal more to female audience. This time I am making a film that caters to college students. There is a misrepresentation of college going youth in Telugu films. Generally college students are shown as people who always indulge n group fights and elope without listening to their parents. But Happy Days is going to change that cinematic perception of college youth. Happy Days will trigger a small change in the trend of filmmaking.”
4 girls and 4 boys are needed for main leads – Sekhar Kammula
He also added, “We don’t have complete brand associations with corporate companies like in Hollywood and Bollywood. The corporate company is involved only after production is over. Here we are attempting to involve corporates even before the commencement of shooting. We are associating with Big FM, Reliance Mobile, Pantaloons, Glitz (event management) etc. We are looking for 4 boys and 4 girls to play leads. We are also looking for people who could do character actor/actresses roles. Happy Days is going to be a trendsetting film. It will be my kind of film in which I will put my heart and soul.”
Sneha (Big FM) anchored the event.
