the experience of Nijam. I want my films to do well
at box office and satisfy distributors and exhibitors
in terms of profits.

It's a city based subject. Tanikella Bharani is doing
the role of hero's father who is a driver of a municipality

of title. What is the title of this new project?
I have one apt title in my mind. I would announce
it in a week after registering the title in AP Film

I grew up watching films of comedy and action. And
this film too would have comedy and action.
Did you select heroine?
I have not fixed the heroine yet. I am looking for
a new face. I would also be introducing quite a few
new faces. With new faces, I can improvise the things
to suit characterization in my films. But with big
stars it is not possible.

Anup is doing music. This film would have 8 songs.
2 songs are recorded so far.
