galleries and trailers of premikulu, heroine Kamna

Yuvaraj's performance and commitment. She opined that

equipment and expensive locations
The producer is taking all precautions to make sure
that film is rich and vibrant by hiring the latest
equipment. It makes more sense as the film has the
city backdrop. Director Jaya is using the 435 ARRI
camera, 24 lens and 1200 zoom for this purpose. She
is also hiring Giraffe and touch-head cranes for canning
shots. They do charge around Rs. 30,000/- per day
to lend Giraffe crane. This crane is been used for
high profile films like Arya, Gharshana, Arjun etc
so far. For the first time, this kind of sophisticated
equipment is used for a film starring new faces. The
producer has to pay around Rs. 75,000/- per day to
obtain shooting permission in HITEX.
A rain song was shot on heroine Kamna Jetmalani last
month. 2nd song is currently being shot. Two songs
would be shot in Goa in th month of May. There would
an item song. Another song would be a situational
song that uses montage shots in the background. The
solo song was shot in necklace road for a day and
for the first time, they allowed a Telugu film to
shoot beyond 8. Jaya thanked the lady Lake Cop Sridevi
for giving the permission.

Producer BA Raju said that his film magazine 'Superhit'
is universally liked by the fans of all heroes. And
