Nagesh Kukunoor also revealed why he took so long to make a film in Telugu. The National Award-winning director said, “Let me tell you, I was offered several Telugu films earlier, but I turned them down politely. I believe that you can make a film only if you are comfortable in that language. Even though my mother tongue is Telugu, while growing up, I spoke Deccani. I only got comfortable with Telugu over the last couple of years, and that’s when I decided to make a Telugu film (sic.)”
Nagesh also revealed that he is only friends with Shobu Yarlagadda and Rana Daggubati in Tollywood and meets them occasionally.
On August 15th, the Keerthy Suresh starrer Good Luck Sakhi teaser was unveiled by Prabhas. The music is composed by Devi Sri Prasad and is produced by Sudheer Chandra. The film has been predominantly shot in Hyderabad and Pune.
