Encouraged by the stupendous success of 'Bicchagadu', producer Chadalavada Padmavati is out to present the Telugu audience with yet another artistic, pushing-the-envelope movie. 'Ann Maria Kalippilaanu', the 2016 Indian Malayalam children's film directed by Midhun Manuel Thomas and written by Thomas and John Manthrichal, will be dubbed by the producer, who has acquired the dubbing rights by shelling out a fancy price.
"Starring Baby Sara, who shined in Vikram-starrer 'Nanna', in the key role, the film has gone on to become a blockbuster in Malayalam. There was a huge competition among various producers for the movie's dubbing rights. We have clinched the deal. The film narrates the story of a school-going kid (played by Sara) and what consequences follow when she meets a fraudster (played by Sunny Wayne). Aju Varghese is playing a key role, while Dulquer Salman (of 'OK Bangaram' and '100 Days of Love') plays a guest role", the producer says.
"The resounding success of 'Bicchagadu' shows that, when one follows the right strategy and the content is good, a film can make it big. Released in 50 screens, the film went on to be released in 200 theatres, besides collecting Rs. 25 cr", the producer adds.
One expects another hit from the makers.
