Charmme’s suspense thriller Mantra was launched at a function arranged in Annapura studios on the morning of 27 October. Devi Sri Prasad sounded the clapboard. Dil Raju and Sukumar switched on the camera. Puri Jagan directed the first shot.
Speaking on the occasion actress Charmme said, “I did 23 films so far and this is my 24th film. I am proud to be a commercial actress. Lot of people approached me after Anukokunda Oka Roju film. I listened to more than 25 heroine oriented scripts, but liked none. I love this Mantra script. This film is being done by youngsters with passion and conviction. I am doing a middle class girl in this film. It is a glamour role as well. Mantra is going to be a special film in my career like Anukokunda Oka Roju and Pournami.”
Producer Ravi Prakash said, “We are new to the film industry and we came from software background. We would like to thank Charmme for her support.”
Music director Anand said that there will be 4 songs in this film.
Producer Kalyan Ram said that this is a suspense thriller. Director Tulsiram worked with Siva Nageswara Rao in the past. Dialogue writer Surendra Krishna said that he is penning dialogues for this film after A Film By Arvind.
Regular shooting would start on 2nd November and would be completed in 40 working days.
