Kotha Bangaru Lokam (KBL), with the tagline 'Waiting for you', directed by Srikanth Addala, presented by Anitha and produced by Dil Raju under Sri Venkateswara Creations banner stars Varun Sandesh and Swetha Prasad.
The producer is making efforts to release the film during Dussera. Talking to the media, cinematographer Chota K. Naidu said, "I was inspired after watching Maro Charitra long ago. My dream to work for such a great love epic has been fulfilled by working for this movie. To bring out a good film needs a good subject, good banner and the best team. This film has all those qualities."
Dil Raju explained, "Earlier we thought of producing this film with a limited budget. With all new faces and technicians, we started the film with a plan to complete it in 60 days. With the director being a novice, we thought a senior cinematographer would be of immense help and chose Chota as our cameraman. After listening to his music, we booked Mickey J. Meyer as music director and Varun Sandesh as the hero. According to the characterization in the movie, we selected other artistes. Though the shooting was delayed due to some technical problems, all those who watched the rushes have complimented us for waiting to complete the scenes involving Prakashraj. He gave a superlative performance. Generally, I have the habit of staying at the shooting spot, but I did not go frequently this time and left the responsibility to Srikanth and Chota. The film came out very well. We will release the film on October 9 as Dussera gift. Moreover, we have a sentiment attached to the Dussera holidays. Bommarillu in 2006 and Happy Days in 2007 were Dussera releases and they were superlative box-office performers. We are sure that our latest film KBL will repeat the magic this year."
