How did this project shape up ?
I always wanted to make concept oriented films in Telugu. When Sanjeev Reddy narrated me this script about cuber crime, I was more than ready to produce it.

No ! I only had a say about the marketing strategy of the film, and gave my inputs during the shoots.
How has the film shaped up ?
Both the writer and director Manjunath have worked very hard on this film. The film is totally concept oriented and will surely impress the audience.
How far do you think a bold concept like this will be accepted in Tollywood ?
I can say that the audience have not witnessed such a bold film from the past five years. I think it is the right time to make these films and I believe that it will set a trend for the future.
What is the story all about ?
This is a story of three different people and how internet creates a huge change in their lives. We have narrated the film in quite an interesting way and made the story crisp and without any commercial angles.

As I am busy with my production ventures, I took a little break. As soon as I find a interesting story, I will get back to direction soon.
What happened to your prestigious project Dana Karna ?
For now, I have put the project on hold as I have not found a lead actor who is ready to accept the role which is completely concept oriented.
