YVS Chowdary, who is awaiting the release of his directorial venture Rey, is keen to direct sequels to two of his Telugu hits like Lahiri Lahiri Lahirilo and Seethayya over the next two years. He says that he has already prepared the scripts and finalised titles for both films.
Talking to IANS, YVS Chowdary said, "As soon as I complete Rey, I will begin work on two sequels to my hit films. While Krishna Mukunda Murari will be a sequel to Lahiri Lahiri Lahirilo; Evari Mata Veenadu will be a sequel to action-drama Seethayya." He added, "I'm done with the scripting for the both the films and will soon start hunting for the cast. Scripting usually takes a lot of time. Therefore, I completed it even before announcing the film. I will start working on one of the films very soon."
He will also produce the films under his home banner Bommarillu Films. Asked if he believe there is a market for sequels, he said, "Sequels to hit films always have a good market provided they are made with a distinction. Audiences would love to know how the story of a successful prequel will be taken forward."
Since nearly two years, Chowdary has been busy shooting for Telugu musical love story Rey. "It's a musical love story featuring two debutants. I spent more time on the project because it required such attention and since most of the film was shot abroad, we had to spend a lot of time travelling," he added.
The film features Chiranjeevi's nephew Varun Tej and Shabana Azmi's niece Saiyami Kher in lead roles. It also features Shraddha Das in an important role.
