Chandoo Mondeti’s forthcoming Telugu romantic-drama Premam recovered its investment on the day it was launched. The director says working on the project made him a responsible filmmaker and helped him understand the commerce of cinema. “On the day the film was launched, few distributors had come forward to buy the film. We recovered our investment on that day. These things helped me understand the commerce of cinema,” Chandoo told.
“Premam”, an eponymous remake of the Malayalam blockbuster, is slated for release on Friday. Asked whether he was under tremendous pressure while working on the remake of a celebrated film, he said: “Honestly, there was absolutely no pressure, thanks to the faith my producer and Chaitu (Naga Chaitanya) had in me. I feel this project made me a responsible filmmaker.”
Starring Naga Chaitanya, Shruti Haasan, Anupama Parameswaran and Madonna Sebastian, the film is produced by S. Naga Vamsi.
