‘Ninu Veedani Needanu Nene’, the emotional horror entertainer, stars Sundeep Kishan in the lead role. The hero is producing this novel movie on Venkatadri Talkies (Production No. 1) in association with V Studios and Vista Dream Merchants. Directed by Caarthick Raaju, Anya Singh is the female lead.
The film will hit the screens on July 12. Its Trailer was launched on Sunday in Hyderabad. Producer ‘Gemini’ Kiran, and Anil Sunkara graced the occasion as chief guests.
Producer ‘Gemini’ Kiran said, “Sundeep Kishan has borrowed ‘Venkatadri’ from ‘Venkatadri Express’ (my hit movie with him) and christened the name of his banner as ‘Venkatadri Talkies’. It’s very nice of him. I wish him all the best. I wish that this film will become a big hit.”
Anil Sunkara said, “It’s a daring step on Sundeep’s part to become a producer while being an actor. He must have done it because of faith in the story and the director. He has worked really hard and I hope he will get deserving success. This film is a perfect package with Sundeep’s acting, Anya Singh’s glamour and Thaman’s fantastic background music. I hope he will recreate the magic of ‘Venkatadri Express’ with this film.”
Sundeep Kishan said, “It feels new to be called a producer. It has been two years since I saw myself on the silver screen in a theatre. Since cinema is my life, it has been very difficult not to be able to do so. I had gone abroad when my films released so that I wouldn’t have to listen to negative comments of people. By the time I returned, I put on some weight. I was preparing myself to do a new film after shedding weight. This is when I came across a heavyweight in the industry write me off. I am not angry with him. It is because of what he said that I resolved to do ‘Ninu Veedani Needanu Nene’. Only I have the right to decide what I should do in my life. Nobody else has that right. Opportunities have to be created by oneself. I have always done only those subjects in which I believed. I will continue to do it. Even if there were to come a day when I will have to quit acting, I should quit only after doing a memorable flick. Only then will I have done justice to my dreams and years of effort. Gemini Kiran garu and Anil Sunkara garu are the persons I look up to. They have stood by me. Anil garu is this film’s presenter. He was among the first ones to watch this film. Daya, my friend and partner, has been with me all along. When he listened to the story, he didn’t say a word and came forward to co-produce the movie. Yesterday, he hugged me after watching the movie. I have done my career-best movie. Many people do movies out of anger, fear or pain. We have done it with a vengeance. Our single-point agenda is to give the best to the audience. My parents have never demanded anything from me. I only hope that they don’t hear about a flop film of mine. With this film, I will make them proud. My director Caarthick Raaju’s life story is like that of Nani in ‘Jersey’. He is 46 and is a very good CG technician. He had left a lucrative job 8 years ago to become a filmmaker. He has become one with the support of his family. I thank every technician who has worked on the film. I am dedicating this film to my fan Kadapa Seenu, who died a few months ago. He supported me a lot despite me having no hits in the last 2 years. He is unfortunately not alive when I have finally done a good movie. I will make movies with fresh talent under my banner Venkatadri Talkies.”
Co-producer Supriya said, “I have loved the film. Entertainment, scares and thrills are in good measure. We need the blessings of the audience.”
Anya Singh said, “This is my first Telugu film. This is a special day to me. The film has got a range of emotions. I thank the director, producers for this opportunity.”
Producer Daya Pannem said, “I and Sundeep Kishan have been very good friends. We are now partners. I have watched the movie and it has come out really well.”
Director Caarthick Raaju said, “After listening to the script, Sundeep Kishan offered to produce the movie himself. It was a big surprise to me. This is an emotional horror flick. The lead pair have done a great job. Thaman’s score is terrific.”
