I was supposed to lead FDFS, but: Anudeep

Shot to fame with Jathi Ratnalu, director Anudeep KV is currently directing another romantic comedy Prince with Sivakarthikeyan. He also provided a story for the upcoming movie First Day First Day.

Anudeep says the film’s story is very close to her.

“I saw the first day euphoria of the first show and the celebrations from the fans in the theaters. I used to watch most movies on the first day show. I had trouble grabbing Pokiri’s FDFS tickets. I am a big fan of Pawan Kalyan. I also like Venkatesh.

The film was made with new actors and the directors reveal the reason why.

“For these kinds of stories, familiar faces are not correct. Srikanth Reddy and Sanchita Bashu played their roles well. The film also has experienced actors like Thanikella Bharani and Vennela Kishore.

Newbies Vamsidhar Goud and Lakshmi Narayana directed the film together.

“Initially, I was supposed to direct the film. But due to my other commitments, I couldn’t do it. Vamsi liked the story and he was ready to direct the film.

Vamsi suggested that it would be better if the film had another director. Then Lakshmi Narayana came on board. Although I wasn’t there during the filming, my involvement was there in the script, the editing and the background music. I am responsible for the outcome of the film.

Anudeep KV’s directorial venture Prince is in the final stages of filming and preparing for the Diwali release. He is also in talks for a movie with Venkatesh.
