About the film

Movies revolving round fans and their matinee idols are not uncommon to cinegoers. Hrishikesh Mukherjee's "Guddi" and Dasari Narayana Rao's "Sivaranjani" are two such films. "But our film is different from these movies. It is about fans, their achievements and their idolizing the stars, and the ideals of their matinee idols," informs Sudarsan Bhattacharya nee J.K. Bharavi, the writer of the much-acclaimed "Annamayya". He is now making his debut as director with Raghuramaiah Creations' "Fans". His maiden attempt showcases the activities of the diehard film fans of various stars from a new angle.

Suryavamsi, Sunitha Varma, Vijaya Bhaskar and Priya Sharma - all newcomers play the fans. The movie's shooting has recently been completed, and it is now in the post- production stage.

Says Bharavi, "Inspired by the social service activities taken up by some popular stars, I have written the story. Suryavamsi and Sunitha Varma play the fans of Chiranjeevi. Following the footsteps of their favourite star, how they commit themselves to serve the society forms the theme. Of course, it is also a love story. But there is a vast difference in the canvas - it takes place in the village. "Kota Srinivasa Rao plays the main villain and Suryavamsi defeats him in the panchayat elections to become the president. Our aim is to channelise the energy of the youth into constructive work. The fans here, irrespective of their star affiliation, rally together to react to a social issue in a thrilling finale.

"For lighter moments, the movie has all the top comedians. The film has nine songs, which includes one with the list of names of all the Chiranjeevi starrers to date. I would like to call my debut attempt a thought-provoking entertainer".

The film's presenter Nara Jayasri Devi says the idea to make a movie of this nature came up while working with Chiranjeevi in "Sri Manjunatha". "He is the sole inspiration for the movie. Generally, fans of popular heroes are at loggerheads with each other. Our idea is to bring them closer. The film is not a documentary, but a wholesome entertainer with a message".

The star cast includes Brahmanandam, Babu Mohan, A.V.S., Gundu Hanumantha Rao, Bharani, Uthej, Chittibabu, L.B. Sriram, Dharmavarapu Subramanyam, Sumalatha, Krishnaveni, Ramyasri and Rajita.

Dialogue is by Sri Krishna, Choreography by Rajasekhar, Camera by D.D. Prasad, art by Kishore and Praveen, and fights by Ram Lakshman. Editing is by Kalpana. P. Nagaraju is the co-director. J.K. Bharavi has penned the story, screenplay and lyrics. Music, production and direction are also by him.
