The first copy of Bharati (India The Great) directed and produced by RS Raju on the banner of Samaikya Productions with Baby Sridivya playing the title role is ready.
Producer cum director RS Raju says, 'Though it is a children's film, we did not compromise at any stage. We shot a part of the film in Himalayas for about six days as the story demanded it. Likewise, we shot the film in Palakollu, Sringavriksham, Bhimavaram and their surrounding areas in beautiful locations. Likewise, we also shot a part of the film in Hyderabad and Secunderabad. We are planning to release the film somewhere in January.'
Talking about the story, he says, 'We thought of imbibing the patriotic spirit among the children right from the students stage. The parents and teachers should cooperate each other in this aspect.' The film has Shashidhar and Apoorva in the lead, while Narasimha Raju, Mad, Sampathraj, Sri Shashank, Madhavi, Pushpa, Ajay, Zilani, Koteswara Rao and others are in the cast. Dialogues are by Chandrasekhar Azad, music is by TVS Raju.
