Parasuram, a protege of Puri Jagannath, made his debut as director for Yuvatha with Nikhil of Happy Days fame as hero. The specialty of the film is that the famed director turned a dubbing artist for Yuvatha. Speaking on the occasion, director Parasuram said, "I entered the film industry by taking Puri Jagannath as my inspiration. I got the opportunity to work with him for many films and now got a promotion as director. When I pleaded with him to dub his voice to one of the characters, he immediately accepted".
However, it will remain a secret as to whom he has lent his voice. Aksha, who is facing the camera for the first time, is paired up with Nikhil, while Hari and Uma Prakash are jointly producing the film on the banner of Worth Watching Entertainments. The film will hit the screen very soon.
