Director Praveen Sataru's upcoming Telugu movie Chandamama Kathalu, which has
been delayed for some days, is finally scheduled to release in
theatres worldwide on April 25. Confirming the release date,
Chanakya Bhooneti, who is one of the producers of the film, said
that its release was postponed due to unavailability of enough
amount of screens.
Chandamama Kathalu is touted as the first Telugu
anthology film. Chanakya Bhooneti told IANS, "The film was
originally supposed to come out in March, but since we couldn't get
a good number of theatres, we had to postpone the release. The film
has been locked for April 25 and it will release."
Featuring an ensemble cast of Lakshmi Manchu, Aamani, Naresh,
and Chaitanya Krishna, the film has been titled after the
children's book of the same name. "I grew up listening to
Chandamama Kathalu. My grandmother used to read them to me
and I fondly remember them for the collection of stories in
Praveen Sataru added, "I decided to name my film after the book
because my story is about the day-to-day experiences of multiple
characters. There are multiple small stories in the larger story of
my film. I thought this title would perfectly fit the bill, and
therefore, I named it after the book."
