All of us are aware of the depth and versatility that Rajendra Prasad is capable of, with films like Aa Naluguru, Mee Sreyobhilashi and Senapathi (apart from his comic fares). The veteran is confident that his next release, Anukoni Prayanam, directed by newcomer Venkatesh Pediredla, will be an addition to this list. The makers of the film interacted with the media earlier this week.

Anukoni Prayanam, marking the production debut of Dr. Jagan Mohan D Y (under Apple Creations), had completed its shoot recently. Noted producer Bekkem Venugopal is the presenter of the film that also stars many veterans like Narasimha Raju, Tulasi, Subhalekha Sudhakar. Legendary writer duo Paruchuri Brothers have penned the dialogues.

“In my 40-year-old career, I was genuinely surprised when I heard stories like Aa Naluguru and Mee Sreyobhilashi. I literally froze when the director narrated the story of Anukoni Prayanam and I genuinely have the feeling of being part of a great film, inspired by the plight of migrant workers during the COVID-19 lockdown. This is a story about friendship,” the actor said.

“It takes a passionate producer to have conviction to make something on the lines of Anukoni Prayanam. Jagan has completely believed in the story and invested his hard-earned money in the film. I am delight to have shared screen space with an experienced actor like Narasimha Raju. The film will definitely strike a chord with audiences,” he added.

Narasimha Raju, while appreciating the medico’s decision to turn a producer, expressed his happiness about teaming up with Rajendra Prasad. “I had a blast filming my scenes with him and I’m sure it’ll be a riot for audiences at theatres too,” he stated. The director Venkatesh Pediredla thanked the producer and Rajendra Prasad for believing in his abilities.

Prabhas Sreenu, Rangasthalam Mahesh, Jogi Brothers, Dhanraj, Kancharapalem Kishore, Gemini Suresh and Tagubothu Ramesh too play important roles. S Siva Dinavahi is the composer and Ram Tumu is the editor.
