Filmmaker SV Krishna Reddy, who is known for his comedy movies, is now returning to direction five years after the release of Masth. He is keeping no stone unturned to make his upcoming Telugu mythological-comedy Yamaleela 2 a super-hit film. The director says its computer generated imagery (CGI) will make it a visual treat for the audiences.
Makuta VFX, the company that worked on Eega, has been roped in to work on this film. Krishna Reddy said, "We are making sure that Yamaleela 2 looks a lot better. We couldn't afford to use CGI back then and also there weren't many companies with the expertise as well. All that has changed now and we have roped in experts to make the film a visual treat."
Krishna says the film is not a sequel to his 1994 Telugu hit Yamaleela, but an extension of the story. The filmmaker added, "All the characters return in the sequel, but the story is an extension of Yamaleela. It is no way a sequel because we are making a lot of changes in this film. This film is based on a series of short stories by a popular Telugu author."
Yamaleela 2 features entrepreneur-turned-actor KV Satish in the lead alongside newcomer Diah Nicholas. Manchu Mohan Babu features in an important role of lord Yama.
