Press meet of Sekhar Kammula’s latest film Godavari was held at FNCC in the afternoon of 28th December 2005. This meet was attended by Sekhar Kammula, GVG Raju, Sumanth and Kamalinee Mukherjee.

This film is about heroes among us - Sekhar Kammula
Director Sekhar Kammula said, “Anand film brought us both rewards and awards. Anand film was liked my middle and upper middle class people a lot. The progressive attitude of heroine’s character was appreciated by ladies very much. The movie lovers would certainly have expectations on the next film by the team of Anand. Godavari film is a modern romantic comedy set against the backdrop of Godavari. Sumanth okayed the film after reading the bound script. Kamalinee Mukherjee shown in an angle that went unexposed in Anand film. Sumanth is playing the role of a simple man serving the society without any motives behind it. This film is about the heroes among us.”

I am very fortunate to get this film - Sumanth
Hero Sumanth said, “I am very fortunate be cast in this film as hero. Not many actors get this kind of film these days. All the characters I played so far are very cinematic. For the first time I am doing a very realistic and idealistic character. Godavari script is perfect and you would see a new Sumanth in this film. Godavari film is going to be a wonderful one.”

Our characters have parallels to Ram and Seeta - Kamalinee Mukherjee
Heroine Kamalinee Mukherjee said, “I am feeling really happy to work with the team of Anand again. The character played by Sumanth and me have parallels to that of Ram and Seeta respectively. Seeta is known for honesty, goodness and integrity. That is what my character in this film has. KM Radhakrishnam gave rocking music for Godavari. There is happy feel and freshness in this film just like Anand. The additional ingredient is this film is going to be romance.”

Aiming for Feb 2006 release - GVG Raju
Producer GVG Raju said, “I fell in love with the idea when Sekhar Kammula narrated it an year back. The bound script was ready by April. Godavari film has contemporary story and shows how leadership quality comes out of a person as per the situation. When we shot Godavari, there were very high water levels. Godavari is going to be a very big film after the release. We are aiming for February 2006 release.”
