A successful Malayalam film Lanka is being dubbed into
Telugu as Pokiri Pilla by Harish Reddy on the banner of
Dhruti Cinema. The film has Suresh Gopi and Mamata Mohandas in the
lead and was made with real life incidents in Sri Lanka. Producer
Harish Reddy says, 'Our Army went to Sri Lanka to check the
atrocities by Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, while Rajiv Gandhi
was the prime minister. The team was named Indian Peace Keeping
Force. An incident that occurred during the operation was
extraordinarily moulded on the screen by director AK Sajan. The
characters of hero Suresh Gopi and heroine Mamata Mohandas have
equal importance in this film. In fact, the entire story revolves
round the heroine. That is why we titled the film as Pokiri
Pilla. Dubbing works are going on at a fast pace. We will
release the audio on November 20 and the film on December 1.'
Dialogues are by Rajasekhar Reddy, lyrics are by Vennelakanti and
music is by Srinivas.
