Vishwak Sen's 11th film marks the Telugu-language directorial debut of 'Action King' Arjun Sarja. The senior actor is introducing his daughter Aishwarya Arjun as the heroine. On Thursday, the project was launched in the presence of Pawan Kalyan, who was there to support Arjun, someone he admires personally.
The untitled film is also produced by Arjun. For him, it is his 13th outing as a director and 15th outing as a producer.
Vishwak Sen revealed that he was pleasantly surprised to receive the offer from Arjun. "It came out of the blue," the 'Ashoka Vanamlo Arjuna Kalyanam' actor said, adding that his mother admires Arjun's acting chops. He also expressed happiness over the fact that a solid technical team has been onboarded. Among them is 'KGF' music director Ravi Basrur.
Aishwarya sounded thrilled about making an acting debut in Telugu, that too, in the direction of his father. Although she said that she is not fluent in Telugu, she sounded fairly well-versed.
Prakash Raj, who is doing the film, praised Arjun and said that he has won the love of the likes of Arjun over the decades.
When it was his turn Arjun remembered late director Kodi Ramakrishna, who cast him in a 1984 blockbuster. "Initially, I refused to come on board. But my guru Ramakrishna garu encouraged me. The film is 'Pallelo Gopaludu'," the 'Oke Okkadu' actor said, thanking the Telugu audience for always showering their love on him.
The film has dialogues by Sai Madhav Burra of the recent 'Roudram Ranam Rudhiram'.
