Actor Nani's much-awaited film "Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha" (KVPG) has completed the formalities of the censor board and is set to be released as a grand treat for Nandamuri Balakrishna fans.
The makers of "Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha" reportedly held a special screening of the movie for the officials of the Regional Censor Board in Hyderabad on Tuesday. The censors were said to have been impressed with the first copy and awarded it a "U/A" certificate without any suggestion for deletion or muting. The film is now gearing up for release on Feb. 12.
"Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha", which translates to "Krishna's great love story", is a romantic comedy film written and directed by Hanu Raghavapudi. Set against the backdrop of a faction in Rayalaseema, the movie is about how a cowardly Krishna succeeds in his 15 year old love story against all odds.
Nani will be seen as an ardent fan of senior actor Nandamuri Balakrishna in "Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha". "The entire film is shot in Hindupur and the surrounding areas, which is Balakrishna's constituency. So naturally, most of them are Balayya Babu fans and I am one among them. I played the role and did all my scenes as a true Balayya fan," Nani said an interview to 123 Telugu.
The makers of the film want to rope in Balakrishna for a cameo role in "Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha", but changed their mind at the last moment. "Initially, we had that plan but backed out as we thought that his presence would change the entire essence of the film," Nani added.
Nani will be seen romancing Mehrene Kaur Peerzada in "Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha", which is produced by Ram Achanta, Gopichand Achanta and Anil Sunkara under the 14 Reels Entertainment banner. Murali Sharma and Sampath Raj appear in important roles in the film, which has Vishal Chandrasekhar's music.
