The unit of "16 Days" – the movie starring Charmme and a debutant Arvind in the lead, is finished to its entire shoot and currently under its postproduction process. Made on Cosmos Entertainments banner, the film is a trilingual in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. Salmon Prabhu directs the film and P. Mahesh Babu and DY Chowdary are producers. Marking the completion of the shoot, the unit arranged the launch of the movie website tonight at Film Nagar Cultural Club, Hyderabad. Actress Charmme formally switched on the laptop and launched the website. The film has music by Dharan. Camera is handled by Sukumar.

Salmon Prabhu said: "The movie got finished successfully thanks to the collective efforts of the unit. I thank Charmme and Kota for their cooperation. While Charmme's role as Angel will be enthralling, Kota did a wonderful role even at a very risky place – a stone quarry. But for him, none would have accepted to do shoot at a hazardous place. Other than climax, the thrilling part is from the introduction song on Charmme. The movie is about five characters. There is no hero. The songs are very trendy, fresh and a couple of songs were shot in the sizzling locations in Malayasia."

Charmme said (in impressive Telugu): "I am really lucky to be working with a brilliant director like Salmon Prabhu. His direction and conceiving of ideas and their execution are natural and there is not even a trace of artificiality anywhere. I played the role of an angel (screen name also Angel) in the life of the hero. Mine is a sort of character, which believes in today, taking tomorrow as false. Its like Kal Ho Na Ho. I also constantly move with the hero, trying to change him with all positive thoughts. Highlight of my role is that I do mimic Pawan Kalyan, Ravi Teja and Sunil."

Kota Srinivasa Rao said: "The movie has really given me a wonderful experience, though I had acted in a good number of films other than Telugu. The story has a factionist element. Coming to the title of the film 16 Days, it has a sentimental value which is peculiar to Tamilnadu."

The producers said: "We are thrilled with the output. Actually, we never expected that the film would come with such an extraordinary quality and entertainment. The credit goes to Salmon Prabhu. For the first time, Sony is releasing the audio in the third week of August. We will announce the release date soon."
