'Rangula Raatnam' is like Sankranthi 'pongali': Nagarjuna

Saturday, January 13, 2018 • Telugu Comments

Ahead of the release of 'Rangula Raatnam' on January 14, Akkineni Nagarjuna, the film's producer, spoke of the film.

Nagarjuna said, "Our film is the Sankranthi 'pongali' from Annapurna Studios.  I have watched the film.  I can say that this is a very real, sweet film.  The scenes between the son and his mother (the Raj Tarun-Sitara duo) and the ones between the lead pair (the RT-Chitra Shukla duo) are so realistic that they are like characters in front of our eyes.  This is a family entertainer."

The actor-producer further said, "We had completed the movie a month back.  We luckily found a date this Sankranthi and immediately sealed the release date.  I had listened to the story a year ago.  When I asked my Executive Producer Supriya to listen to it, she gave the nod.  Recently when I watched the movie, I did so as the average audience.  And I loved it thoroughly.  I involved in the making only to the extent that I suggested some cuts. When Annapurna Studios delivers a hit, some credit will always be mine.  So, I am very happy."

"This one is Sree Ranjani's debut movie.  I don't remember how she narrated it to me a year ago.  But the way she has executed the story, she has done it like an experienced technician.  We did 'Uyyala Jampala' with Raj Tarun.  He is a natural actor.  In a scene involving his mother's character, he is so very good.  I like his slang.  His timing is quite natural.  Sitara garu's acting, too, is a highlight," Nag said.
