Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi (PAPA) is Srinivas Avasarala’s film with his trademark comedy, emotion, and classical touches. The cute pairing of Naga Shourya and Malvika Nair, and their sparkling chemistry is going to be the highlight of the film which is being produced by People Media Factory in collaboration with Dasari Productions.
Ahead of the release on March 17, Malvika Nair spoke to us and said working with somebody like Srinivas Avasarala, who learnt the ropes of filmmaking in the USA is a dream come true. In the process, my Telugu speaking skills too improved and am happy about the output. The time frame of the film is between 18 and 28 years and my co-star, Naga Shaurya really worked hard to get the look, first as a collegegoer and the time when he does Masters.
The film has been in the making for a long time now and when asked how difficult it was to hold on to the character, Malavika says "During the shooting in the UK, I struggled a lot to let go of my emotions soon after the shooting. Srinivas helped me to overcome the situations at that time."
Malavika plays Anupama in the film and when asked about her character, she said "I play the role of Anupama in the film. She is a bit reserved. Coming to real life, I am a person who loves to give. But if I am hurt by anyone, I will distance them from my life. Scenes may seem repetitive in a love story but the reason we fight sometimes appears that it's all the same everywhere".
