Love story between six-seater driver and pickle selling girl: Sekhar Kammula
Sekhar Kammula said: "Avakai Biryani is the first film from my banner Amigos Creations to come up with a new director Anish Kurivilla, while all the previous ones were directed by me. Though I am the producer, the film has the complete mindset and flavor of Anish. It has the independent theme from him. He grouped his own team of technicians this film. The re-recording is under progress. We are going to release the audio on October 10th. The screen hit will be in the first week of November. Avakai Biryani is a love story between a six-seater audio driver and a pickle selling lass in a village. Entire film was shot in Vikarabad area. We started shooting on March 18th."
I felt like making an Epic: Anish Kuruvilla
Anish Kurivilla said: "I can't say much now other than thanking Sekhar Kammula for the opportunity given to me as director and producing it himself. I can talk more after the audio release. As of now I say Avakai Biryani is a feel good romantic drama, with elements of love and affection. We have introduced entirely a new casting and technicians, including the supporting characters. In fact, it was a very tough schedule for me that we took up shoot in dead summer and in the outdoor. I experienced the film shoot like that of making an epic. I thought of meeting the press at the right time, which I think has come now. I once again thank Sekhar for his belief in me, in the script and my capability as director."
