At the pre-release event of Calling Sahasra, Sudigali Sudheer opened up about the film. “Director Arun Vikkirala has given me a challenging role. I was either seen in comedy films or mass entertainers to date, I credit him for showcasing me in a new avatar. Dollysha is a beautiful actress, she is competitive and pushed me to do better,” he said.

While the team was confident that they had made a good film, it was Bekkem Venugopal who helped them with the promotional strategy, ensuring them a good release in Telugu states. “I thank my fans and everyone who’ve contributed to my journey. While Gaalodu was a success at the box office, my friends cautioned me that it was my fans who helped it become a hit despite a regular plot,” he opined.

Sudheer further added, “My friends advised me to not take a chance and asked me to give my fans better films. I want to be careful about my choices. The film started three years ago and is releasing on December 1 amidst great difficulty.Watch Calling Sahasra in theatres and let people know if you like it. I hope the film brings cheer into our lives after release, it’s all in the hands of audiences now.”
