‘Kanulu Kanulanu Dochayante, Prema Ani Daanartham’ – this timeless song from Mani Ratnam’s ‘Donga Donga’ is extremely popular! The first three words of this beautiful song are the title of an upcoming promising movie. The male lead of this movie is none other than Dulquer Salmaan, the versatile actor of Mani Ratnam’s ‘OK Bangaram’ and Nag Ashwin’s ‘Mahanati’. Our own Hyderabadi actress Ritu Varma of ‘Pelli Choopulu’ fame plays the heroine.
The film is the dubbed version of the Malayalam-language romantic thriller ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’. In Telugu, it is titled ‘Kanulu Kanulanu Dochayante’. Written and directed by Desingh Periyasamy, the film is coming in the production of Viacom 18 Studios and Anto Joseph Film Factory. The theatrical release is scheduled for February 28. KFC Entertainments has acquired the Telugu version’s rights. This one is Dulquer’s 25th movie.
The first single from the movie, titled ‘Gundegilli’, is out and its rendition is by Rohit Paritala. Lyrics are by Samrat Naidu and Purna Chary Challuri.
Talking about the film, director Desingh Periyasamy says, “Dulquer has played the role of a mobile application developer named Siddharth. Kallis (played by Rakshan) is his friend. Ritu Varma has played Meera. Shreya, played by Niranjani Ahathian, is her best buddy. If Meera and Sid fall in love with each other, so do Kallis and Shreya. Sid and Kallis have been used to a luxurious lifestyle. What do they do because of this habit and what kind of problems do they invite? This is the crux of the movie that has many twists in store.”
KFC Entertainments is planning a huge release in the Telugu States on February 28.
