Renowned Telugu writer Yandamuri Veerendranath has penned the dialogues and screenplay for Anamika. He says that the job at hand was not a cakewalk for him as he had to write a fresh script for the remake of a Blockbuster movie. He gushes that it was a big challenge for him.
Yandamuri Veerendranath attended the music launch of Anamika held in Hyderabad earlier this week. Addressing the function, the writer said, "We were not doing a frame-to-frame remake. Therefore, I was required to rewrite the screenplay and the dialogues because we weren't translating word by word and scene by scene. I have worked on so many films, but I never felt it so challenging to write."
Anamika is Southern remake of Hindi film Kahaani and it is simultaneously made in Telugu and Tamil. Yandamuri Veerendranath says that Anamika has superseded the original. The writer added, "We've added a social element which was not part of the original. This has made the remake even more exciting and I feel it will be better than Kahaani."
Directed by Sekhar Kammula, Anamika features Nayantara in the role originally played by Vidya Balan. Also starring Pasupathy, Vaibhav Reddy and Harshvardhan Rane, the film is slated to release worldwide on May 1.
