Boyapati Sreenivas, the acclaimed filmmaker renowned for his impactful movies, has joined hands with Ram Pothineni to deliver the much-anticipated mass entertainer Skanda. The movie is all set for a grand release on September 15th across multiple languages, and the pre-release event held in Hyderabad was abuzz with excitement. During the event, Boyapati addressed the enthusiastic audience, particularly the ardent Nandamuri fans, sharing insights and setting the stage for what Skanda has to offer.
Skanda arrives on the heels of the resounding success of Akhanda 2, and Boyapati exuded confidence in the movie’s potential. He kicked off his speech with the spirited chant of “Jai Balayya,” immediately striking a chord with the crowd. He also touched upon the topic of Akhanda 2, acknowledging the versatile acting prowess of Balayya and expressing his conviction that his blessings would propel Skanda to the status of a blockbuster.
The essence of Skanda, as Boyapati emphasized, lies in its seamless fusion of electrifying mass action sequences and emotionally resonant family drama. He reassured the audience that the movie is meticulously crafted to provide a wholesome and captivating cinematic experience. Turning his attention to Ram Pothineni, Boyapati extolled the actor’s unwavering dedication to the craft, a factor that has propelled him to his current stature.
In a moment of recognition, Boyapati showered praise on the leading lady of the film, Sreeleela. He highlighted her extraordinary dancing abilities and the versatility she brings to her roles, playfully remarking that instead of asking with whom she shares the screen, it might be easier to inquire with whom she doesn’t share it.
Acknowledging the pivotal role of the creative team, Boyapati extended accolades to cinematographer Santosh Detake, action director Stun Siva, and art director AS Prakash for their instrumental contributions. He also spoke of his longstanding partnership with music director Thaman, known for delivering hits like Sarainodu and Akhanda. Boyapati confidently asserted that Skanda would continue this streak of musical excellence.
As the discussion shifted to the enigmatic character portrayed by Saiee Manjrekar, Boyapati likened her to the sacred Ganges River, suggesting that her role holds an air of mystique and intrigue. Beyond Skanda, he conveyed his best wishes to the recipients of national awards and expressed optimism for the success of upcoming releases such as Kushi and Miss Polishetty Mr. Polishetty. The director concluded by expressing his eagerness to collaborate anew with producer Srinivaasaa Chitturi, hinting at a promising future partnership.
