The veteran producer spoke about the Akhil Akkineni, Pooja Hegde starrer at a trailer launch event held this week
Most Eligible Bachelor, starring Akhil Akkineni, Pooja Hegde, Murali Sharma, Jaya Prakash and others in the lead roles, is gearing up for a release on October 15. Directed by Bommarillu Baskar, the film has music by Gopi Sundar and is produced by Bunny Vaas and Vasu Varma under GA 2 Pictures. The presenter of the romantic comedy is the veteran producer Allu Aravind. At the trailer launch event of the film, Allu Aravind spoke at length on why he's sure of its success at the box office.
"This is the first event we're doing for Most Eligible Bachelor and I can assure you there'll be many more success meets after the film release. That's the confidence I have in this film. Honestly, Bommarillu Baskar narrated many stories to me but I had approved this script immediately. He gave me the gist of the film in under two hours and I told him that we could start shooting immediately. Telugu audiences appreciate films the most when it's packed with a message and this is a very entertaining film that every viewer would relate with," Allu Aravind shared.
No speech of his is complete without his uncanny sense of humour. "On a lighter note, it's hard to say if the title is a reference to Akhil Akkineni in real life or his character in the film. Of course, he's a boy that many women would want to be with. He may come up with many wonderful performances in films in the future, but I can proudly Most Eligible Bachelor is his best to date. Owing to the pandemic, we had to shoot the film for over two and a half years. However, what's important is the way it has shaped up. I am very happy about the final output," he added.
"I may have troubled the producers Bunny Vaas and Vasu Varma a lot for the film with our discussions, but it's something we've got used to, over the last few years for GA2 Pictures," Allu Aravind stated with a cheeky laugh. He also spoke of the various film industry-related problems that the AP Government needs to address if the theatrical business in Telugu states has to recover after the pandemic. "Please consider this as my request on behalf of the industry to arrive at an amicable solution," he said.
Allu Aravind had high words of praise for Telugu audiences who've been thronging theatres in large numbers. "Telugu audiences are one of the main reasons why many industries across the country gathered the courage to release their films in theatres. The kind of love they have for films is immeasurable and we as an industry will always remain thankful to them," he signed off.
