After the success of Bunny, Mallidi Satyanarayana Reddy is producing his next movie Bhageeratha. The film which star Ravi Teja and Shriya in the lead has the caption 'Nothing is Impossible'. The shooting of the film is currently going on at Ramanaidu Studios Nanakramguda.

Talking to the press about the film Kona Venkat, dialogue writer said, "This film has got Ravi Teja in the lead and Prakash Raj as the villain, their combination has done wonders to a lot of films. The kind of emotions they share on screen is great and has contributed to the success of films."

"This is the second film I am doing with Rasool, I worked on his earlier film Okkariki Okkaru. Rasool has also done this film with taste, he has taken a lot of care about the script and has worked on it for the past two years. People will definitely like this film and it is bound to be a big success."

Prakash Raj who spoke next said, "Bhageeratha is a well known person in Hindu mythology, he brought down Ganga for the welfare of people. Same way when someone sets out to do something impossible it is called 'Bhageeratha Prayatnam'. The story of the film revolves around the hero who takes upon himself the task of transforming the villain and in turn doing good to his people."

"Ravi Teja will be seen more as a lover boy than a fighting kind of hero. Rasool has done a great job of directing the film. My character is obviously the villain who changes in the end."

Rasool who is directing his second film after the success of Okkariki Okkaru, said, "This is the first time that we are meeting the press after starting the film. The basic purpose of this meeting is to inform everyone about the title of the film. I would prefer that the discussion about the film is kept after the release and the audience have seen it. My first film has been a simple class film, so this film will be a total mass film."

"The shooting of the film is going on non stop, about 60-70% of the talkie part has been shot. The music of the film is by Chakri, and four songs have already been recorded. We are planning a August release for the film."

Producer Satyanarayana Reddy said, "The story of the film was what pulled me towards the project, the concept is really great. The director has done a great job and we are hoping for a tremendous hit. The shooting of the film started somewhere during November last year, but Ravi Teja was busy with the shooting of Badra so we put this film on hold and now we are completing the film. The audio of the film will most probably be released in the first or second weeks of July."

Shriya who is the female lead opposite Ravi Teja was missing from the press meet. Senior actors Vijay Kumar and Sudha were also present.
