14th January release - KS Rama Rao
Presenter KS Rama Rao said, "Chukkallo Chandrudu is the latest film on Creative Commercials banner after Vasu film. Siva Kumar and Siddardha worked as first and second associates respectively for Mani Ratnam's films. Siddardha is providing story for this film. Siddardha, Siva Kumar and Kona Venkat weaved screenplay together. Kona Venkat is known for urban orientation in his dialogues. When Siva Kumar narrated the script to ANR, he was very impressed and shown amazing interest on this project. Waheeda Rehman who acted as sister to ANR decades back is paired up with ANR in this film. Chakri has already provided two tunes so far. A couple of songs and a few vital scenes of this film would be canned in Swiss. Abhik Mukhopadyaya who worked for Bollywood films like Raincoat and Bunty Aur Babli is making his debut as cinematographer through this film. This film is an energetic youth techno flick. Shooting of this film would be completed by 10th December. We are aiming for the release on 14th January 2006."

Took 7 months gap for the right script - Siddardha
Siddardh (NVNV fame) said, "This is my second straight film in Telugu. I would like to thank audiences for making NVNV such a big hit. I wanted to do a good film. I took a break of 7 months after the release of NVNV as I waited for the right script. Creative Commercials has got talented team. Legends like ANR, K Raghavendra Rao and Mani Ratnam blessed the occasion. Script of this film has come out really well and we will reach the expectations of the movie lovers. I will put 250% efforts in my work and results would depend on audiences."

Heroines are like vital characters in this film - Alexander Vallabha
Producer Vallabha added, "This is my first film as producer. Siddardha came up with the story and proposal. ANR's role is very crucial for the film and for the Siddardha character in this film. There are three heroines in this film. All these heroines have vital roles to play in script."
