Venu Sriram from Karimnagar is debuting as a director in Siddharth starrer Oh My Friend. He had earlier worked as an associate director in films directed by Bhaskar, Sukumar, Srikant Addala and Vamsi. Dil Raju was so confident about Venu that he announced the film before the script got ready. The highlight of the film will be the rock number scored by Kerala State Award winner in 2010 for Ritu, Rahul Raj . Venu heard Rahul's music (from Ritu, a Malayalam film) on the net and roped him in. The movie deals with friendship and most of the incidents are straight out of the director's life about a school friend. The film will start rolling in January.
