The shooting of the upcoming Telugu film Venky Mama will happen at some picturesque locations in Rajamundhury. Reports are that there are some portions in the film that require a village backdrop following which its makers have earmarked the locations. The shooting will begin from February 22 and the groundwork for it is currently on. The project will be bankrolled jointly by Suresh Productions and Blue Planet Entertainment on a very big budget with Bobby aka KS Ravindra wielding the megaphone. Devi Sri Prasad has been roped in to compose tunes for Venky Mama and Prasad Murella will be cranking the camera.
Rakul Preet Singh and Shriya Saran have been roped in to play the female leads in this flick and will be paired up with Naga Chaitanya and Venkatesh respectively. The shooting of Venky Mama will go on till June this year and will be hitting the marquee later this year.
There are big expectations on this film as it will bring together the real life uncle – nephew on the silver screen for the first time.
Meanwhile, Venkatesh is basking in glory over the success of his latest release F2: Fun and Frustration. Venkatesh and Varun Tej played the heroes in this flick which had Tammannah Bhatia and Mehreen Pirzada as their female leads.
With Sankranthi big ticket films like NTR Kathanayakudu and VVR having a pathetic run at the box office in the first weekend, F2 reached the Rs 100 crore mark in a short time and is getting stronger at the box office and has gained huge profits for producers and distributors. Directed by Anil Ravipudi, F2 has been bankrolled by ace producer Dil Raju under his banner Sri Venkateswara Creations.
Devi Sri Prasad had composed music for F2 and the songs in it turned out to be massive hits. Sameer Reddy had cranked the camera and Bikkina Thammiraju doing the editing.
