Sreemukhi on Bilingual Flick Chandrika

It is not Chandramukhi but Chandrika, the bi lingual Chandrika is being presented by Sajid Qureshi who made Pustakam Lo Konni Pageelu Missing. “He was looking for a Telugu girl, one girl who was already finalised was Kamna Jetmalani. He saw my work on Saradhi and Prema Ishq Kadal, he narrated the story on the phone. One day he did a trial shoot and uploaded on the youtube and got a good response. He made it in two languages both in Kannada and Telugu. Muni Siddhappa is the director”, reveals Sreemukhi to Telugu360.com.

Ask her if there are any similarities with Chandramukhi she replies, “People think that Chandramukhi is similar to Chandrika but it is totally different, only the genre is a common point. The director made sure that the plot looked novel, and I am sure people will not find any similarities. Kamna Jetmalini comes in the flash back and I play the housewife and her aatma comes into me, Second part too there is a small part as a flash back. We tried to play with colours, like gulal…It is an out and out love story. It is a challenge for me to take up such a role and yes, this is a debut film for me in Kannada. Hundred percent was shot in Bangalore and Mysore, at Lalit Mahal Palace.”

How easy was Kannada?

“It took a lot of physical effort and I had to shout, scream a lot. The language was similar, when I was hosting Adhurs I was witness to seeing the Kannada part being filmed so I could grasp most of it and so it wasn’t difficult. I heard horror films in Benguluru do really well. Lot of people have already started enquiring after the trailers came out. My next film is releasing Dhanalakshmi Talupu Thattidi. This is a comedy thriller and that former is love story and horror.”

AP Mulling to Buy Satya Sai International Airport


Andhra Pradesh Government is contemplating to buy the Puttaparthy International Airport owned by Sri Satya Sai Central Trust. The airport has lost it utility after the demise of iconic spiritual leader Sri Satya Saibaba and reportedly has become a white elephant for the trust. State government which is planning to develop an airport in each district thinking of buying the Puttaparthy airport. The issue has come up in the Investment and Infrastructure (I&I) review chief minister Chandrababu Naidu conducted today. He has asked Ajay Jain, Principal Secretary of I&I to study the matter and submit a report on the issue. In fact, the trust has been thinking of selling off the airport for the past several years due to inability to maintain the huge airport sprawling in an extent of 450 acres. The length of the runway is 2230 meters. Some time back the trust has invited bids for the sale and put the floor price at Rs 600 crore. But there has been no further progress. Except on the occasions when special flights of VVIPS are handled, most of the time the airport remains unused. Now that the state government is planning to develop the Hindupur area of Anantapur district as the IT hub it thinks that buying the airport would give boost to its plans. Puttaparthy International Airport is located just 70 km from Bangalore International Airport. The trust reportedly has also put about 2000 acres of land adjoining the airport  for sale. State which is in the process of developing a land bank for industrialization of the Andhra Pradesh is keen on buying the airport and land, a senior official told Telugu360.com. (JNR)
