The trailer thrives on witty one-liners from Dr Aanjaneyulu and the performance of Naruda, played by Sumanth. The video also gives a sneak peek at the refreshing chemistry between Pallavi Subhash and Sumanth.
Going by the trailer, the film is likely to recreate the magic of Vicky Donor both on-screen as well as off-screen.
In 2012 Vicky Donor, provided an ample launchpad for then TV anchor Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam in the Bollywood. The film also opened a dialogue about sperm donation at a time when it was still considered a taboo in the country.
Under the direction of newcomer Mallik Ram, the movie also features debutant Pallavi Subhash as the female lead. Akkineni Nagarjuna is presenting the movie under the Annapurna Studios banner and Sumanth’s sister Supriya, along with John Sudheer Pudhota, is producing the film.
