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, Krishnudu 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 them."
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."
