Producer Venkatappa says it is Venu who has saved him and the film. If Vishnukanth had directed this film it would have been hard to digest. After I came to know that Vishnukanth does not know direction job, then it was Venu who came to my rescue. and Senior Co- director Purshortham took over the film and have done fantastic job. Purshortham has done excellent work in direction. After seeing most of the film rushes I am very happy about the outcome of the film.
Even after a bitter experience from Vishnukanth I called Vishnukanth to Kulu Manali but he told for the songs only choreographers are enough and told he will not come. Before leaving to Thailand when I contacted him and told to come he told he does he does not have passport.
