Aadavallu Meeku Johaarlu is a film that has been constantly in the headlines for its terrific ensemble cast comprising the biggest names in the business like Sharwanand, Rashmika Mandanna, Radhika Sarathkumar, Khushbu, Urvashi, to name a few. Directed by Tirumala Kishore, the family entertainer is gearing up to hit theatres on February 25. Ahead of its release, the cast and crew came together for a media interaction in Hyderabad today. Khushbu spoke of the memories she made with the team of Aadavallu Meeku Johaarlu.
"I think it's important to not look at a film based on a character's screen-time alone. What matters is how the audience reacts to the film in totality. I'm glad to be a part of Aadavallu Meeku Johaarlu. It's not only about women, it's about characters, emotions, relationships. Unlike today where everyone seeks instant gratification, the director Tirumala Kishore has touched upon various emotions within a family and its bonding in the film. I'm truly thankful to him for the opportunity," she said.
Speaking of the on-set vibe, Khushbu shared, "Whenever you go to a new set, you're apprehensive of about its vibe, on how new people would talk to each other but I must say I enjoyed myself thoroughly on the sets of Aadavallu Meeku Johaarlu. It was like a family coming together. I, Urvashi and Radhika had done a film in Australia a few years ago and reuniting with them was amazing."
"It's always a learning experience working with Urvashi, Radhika. If anyone asks who're my most favourite co-stars, I would name both of them. Sharing screen-time with them is nothing short of a challenge and they can get into the skin of any character they're given. I'm yet to come across a beautiful baby as pure, honest as Rashmika in the industry. She's as old as my daughter and I don't mind calling her a baby. She's so dedicated, involved in her work, down-to-earth and pure. I'm glad to have worked with her," she added.
She had many kind words to say about Sharwanand. "Lot of people think whacking villains, beating them to pulp and saving the heroine in the climax is heroism but a true hero is one like Sharwanand in Aadavallu Meeku Johaarlu, who accepted a film that essentially was about women so wholeheartedly. He has been our pillar of support. I had a preconceived notion that he was an actor who has airs but I was totally proved wrong on sets. Sharwanand is among the sweetest actors I've worked with," Khushbu stated.
"This is a landmark film in terms of dealing with emotions in the life of a woman and will definitely bring family crowds back to theatres," she signed off. Produced by Sudhakar Cherukuri under SLV Cinemas, the film has music by Devi Sri Prasad.
