The shooting of Lakshmi Narasimha film directed by debutant director Srivas, presented by Baby Bhavya and produced by Nallamalupu Srinivas under Lakshmi Narasimha Productions, began on Wednesday. The movie has Gopichand and Anushka in the lead. The shooting began at Annapurna Studios in Hyderabad on Wednesday. NTR gave the clap while Venkatesh switched on the camera for the muhurat shot which was shot featuring Gopichand and Anushka under the honorary direction of VV Vinayak.
Music director Ramana Gogula says, 'Director Srivas prepared a good story and the music sittings are in progress. There is a good scope for the music of this film.' Gopichand says, 'The film is being made by enthusiastic and talented director Srivas and is being produced by Nallamalupu Srinivas (Bujji) who gave a big hit like Lakshmi recently. I am very happy for being a part of the unit. Though a novice, director Srivas narrated the story in a different way. I am playing the role of an emotional college student and those who watch the movie could equate several scenes to those from their life. There are six songs in the film and the tunes by Ramana Gogula are catchy.' Director Srivas says, 'I am in the film industry for the past 10 years and gained experience by working with Kasi Viswanath and Krishnavamsi as an associate. The film will have different commercial elements and I am sure that I will make it attractive to all classes of audiences. Moreover, my story and its movement would be like tailor-made for Gopichand's body language.'
Producer Nallamalupu Srinivas says, 'The regular shooting would begin from December 15 and would be completed in a single schedule.' Cinematographer Shekhar V Joseph also spoke. Brahmanandam, Dharmavarapu Subrahmanyam, Raghubabu, Ali, Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao, Nazar, Chalapati Rao, Jeeva, Benarjee, Prabhu, Amith and others are in the cast.
