Superhit Friends banner - that is established by BA Raju, the editor of the most successful and only profit making film magazine Superhit - produced it's first venture 'Premalo Pavani Kalyan' with Ankita and Deepak as the lead pair. This film ran well in B and C centers and fetched a comfortable net profit of 60 lakhs to the producer. With that encouragement, BA Raju has started his second venture as producer with 'Chantigadu' by introducing Baladitya and Suhasini in the direction of his wife B Jaya. B Jaya is also a journalist and storywriter.

BA Raju - who mastered the pulse of media - arranged an extravagant opening of the film 'Chantigadu' in Rama Naidu studios today. All the bigwigs of the industry graced this event to make it successful.

Dr. Rama Naidu - who entered the Guinness book of world records by becoming the only producer who delivered 100 plus films - did the Pooja. K Raghavendra Rao - who earned a place for himself in records by directing 100 commercial films - has switched on the camera. N Hari Krishna - who entered the film industry as a child artist and started his second innings recently and has been delivering hits - has given the clap on the lead pair. Vijaya Nirmala - who is the only female director in the world who directed around 50 films - directed the first shot.

Speaking on this occasion, director Jaya said that she has lots of ideas in her mind and she is implementing one by one and now its time to direct a film. She said she has been a great fan of directors like Bharati Raja, Bala Chandar, K Raghavendra Rao, Dasari Narayana Rao, Bapu, K Viswanath and Vijaya Nirmala. She said that 'Chantigadu' is a village based teenage love story.

Marudhuri Raja - who is providing dialogues - said that it was B Jaya who wrote a first article in film magazines on him when he was writing dialogues for 'Nava Bharatam'. He said that it was a wonderful feeling to see his name on print for the first time and now the time has come to show the gratitude by writing good dialogues for this film.

The shooting of this film has started on 9th June in Hyderabad. Later on the unit would move to places like Narsapuram, Sakhinetipalli, Nepal to shoot the remaining part of the film. Audio release of the film is expected in the month of July. This film is slated for release either in September or October.

The hero Baladitya has acted in more than 50 films as child artist and also won Nandi Award. The heroine Suhasini is a teen Telugu girl from the Nellore city. Both these debutants thank the producer and director for giving them the opportunity.

PS: The glossy invitation that is printed for this muhurat function has also become a talk of the industry.
