It’s a name that is familiar to most film buffs and it’s time for yet another absolutely ‘clean’ entertainer. Not just the director, the producer too, is a popular guy. That’s the ‘waiting’ line for ‘Kerintha’ that had Sai Kiran Adivi almost ending up with a sore throat, wielding the megaphone and getting relatively newcomers to act the way he wanted, before the camera.

‘Kerintha’, that releases on Friday, also saw a premiere on Thursday evening with many a celebrity coming to the Prasad’s Preview Theatre. This is Mr. Sai Kiran’s third as a director and people vividly remember him as the director of the hugely-popular ‘Vinayakudu’ (2008) and followed it up by directing and producing the sequel ‘Village-lo Vinayakudu’ a year later.

Now his third directorial venture has ‘Dil’ Raju as producer. Asked about what the film was about, Mr. Sai Kiran said it was more about real-life characters and revolved around youth. “It is completely a clean entertainer for all age groups. Myself and Mr. Raju worked very hard on the script, shooting parts and going back to re-jig the script and shoot it all over again. That is why it took us a lot of time,” he explained.

BAAHUBALI IN NEWS AGAIN

On Wednesday, three days prior to the official audio launch, news did the rounds that a few songs from the movie were leaked online.

Even as these links appeared on various social media platforms, the makers officially launched a three-minute song titled ‘Sivuni Aana’ on ‘Youtube’. Sung by Keeravani, the number received mixed response from the netizens. Many were seen expressing their disappointment and shared that the music director’s voice was not complimentary to the tune.
