‘DevaDas’ featuring Nagarjuna Akkineni, Nani, Rashmika Mandanna and Aakanksha Singh in the lead roles, is gearing up for release on September 27th. The team of ‘DevaDas’ interacted with the media on Tuesday.
Speaking first producer Ashwini Dutt said, “After very long time, I came before the media. Thanks to my favourite heroes Nagarjuna and Nani for all the support. Vyjayanthi Movies is proudly presenting ‘DevaDas’ and it would provide ample of entertainment for two and half hours. Hope audience would like it.”
Hero Nagarjuna said, “Ashwini Dutt garu is just the same. He is very passionate about films and now he has support in the form of his daughters. Deva is an international mafia don. Instead of violence and mafia activities, more of don’s personal life and friendship with Das is shown in the movie. How Deva and Das get influenced by each other and it is made in an entertaining way. There is a small message also in the movie but it won’t be in a preachy way. The chemistry between me and Nani, is all director Sriram Adittya’s magic. He handled the film quite and it is not easy to manage such a big cast and pressure. Cinematographer Shamdat is the biggest contributor for ‘DevaDas’ and I would like to work with him again and again.”
Hero Nani said, “Das is an innocent and honest doctor. There are no ups and downs in his life and it’s a smooth journey. Unexpectedly a don becomes his friend and how he reacts and how situations change from here form ‘DevaDas.’ Yes, I use phone a lot but whenever Nagarjuna sir is beside me, I rarely use it. But Rana, Rakul and many others have said, “I Agree” which is why the video went viral. Though there is little truth in it. It was wonderful experience working with Nagarjuna sir. I mean I never expected this to happen. For me who watched his films standing in queue at theatres and now sharing the screen with him is a huge thing.”
Actress Rashmika said, “My character is simple like a girl next door in ‘DevaDas.’ There is a surprise element to my role as well. That will be thrilling on the screen.”
Director Sriram Adittya said, “I never differentiate solo movies and multi-starrer. I enjoy doing both and it is obviously a joy to watch two superstars together. Me, Bhupathi Raja and Satyanand have worked on the script for four to five months. After owning the script, we went for the shoot.”
Actress Aakanksha Singh said, “Nagarjuna sir helped me a lot during the scenes. I was juggling with the lines and then he gave a tip. Working with Nag sir is like a dream come true and I can’t express in words.”
‘DevaDas’ is hitting the screens on September 27th and FlyHigh Cinemas is releasing the movie in overseas.
