After being postponed for nearly a year, actor Sai Dharam Tej-starrer Telugu romantic-drama Rey, which marks his acting debut, is finally hitting the screens on May 9. Director YVS Chowdary says it will be a summer treat for the youth. Sai is the nephew of actor-turned politician Chiranjeevi.
In a statement to IANS, YVS Chowdary said, "We've faced a lot of
hurdles along the way. We are finally releasing the film on May 9.
Since our target audiences are the youngsters, this will be a
summer treat for them. By then all college exams would have also
been completed so it will be convenient time to release."
With election getting over in April, YVS Chowdary hopes Rey will
not face any other hurdle during its release. The director said,
"The election would have also concluded (in Andhra Pradesh) by May
9, and we shouldn't be having any problems in releasing our film.
Following the state's bifurcation, I don't think releasing the film
during election time would an appropriate move."
Besides direction, YVS Chowdary has also produced the film with a whopping budget. Predominantly shot in the West Indies, Malaysia and Singapore, Rey features Saiyami Kher and Shraddha Das in important roles. Chakri has composed music for the movie.
