Kota Bommali PS is directed by Teja Marni. The film stars Srikanth, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Rahul Vijay, Shivani Rajasekhar and others. The film is bankrolled by Bunny Vass and Vidya Koppineedi under GA2 pictures. Bhanu Pratapa and Riyaz Chowdary are acting as co producers for the film. It is releasing tomorrow and director Teja Marni interacted with media about the film and shared intriguing things.
He said, “As a filmmaker you want to tell a story that resonates with your beliefs and personally I’m very socially responsible and my films will reflect that. Cinema doesn’t change anyone but it will have an influence and make them think. So we need to use visual medium carefully because it registers more.”
He said, Few stories must be told, and I feel Kota Bommali PS has such content. What I appreciated about the story was the irony that “people in the system are getting slaughtered by the same system”. Everyone is facing the same situation. We merely grabbed the soul and added our nativity and emotions, so it’s not a 100% copy remake.
He added “We made it as a packed thriller to provide the best theatrical experience possible. There are great emotions in the second half to which everyone will relate. I believe that everyone should view the film so that future generations would understand the importance of voting and it will be a reference.”
Talking about the viral song Lingi Lingi Lingidi, he said “We decided to include an authentic Srikakulam folk song in the film. I think I heard the song “Lingi Lingi Lingidi” as a child, and I wanted to use it, so we looked for a singer and eventually finished the song. I expected the song will reach people, but I didn’t anticipate it to go viral.”
