It was in Nandini Layout maximum shoot was held and one song in Bangkok. The film with Siddu and Kumari was possible because good support from co director Devaraj Palan. Manoj, Akshay and Ritesh are friends to Siddu in the film.
The delay is because of schedules changing. Cameraman of ‘Bahubali’ busy schedule, Cauvery issue at the start of the film kept postponing the shooting says Sreeman. On the changes to the original he says there is a Tea Shop owner in this film who is fan of Dr Rajakumar. There was an item song in original and we have made a sorrow song in this Kannada version says Sreeman. Power star Puneeth Rajakumar has lent a ‘Jabardast’ song for this film. it is a mass rock star song.
Sreeman appreciated the ability and skill of Pranam Devaraj. In his debut he has given right emotions, anger, romance, break up in love etc. The poster what you would see is dedicated to youths. It signifies when you are in love close your eyes.
It is a different love story with good emotions. There is parent sentiment. For my elder brother Prajwal for his first film Avinash uncle was father in ‘Sixer’ and today for my role in ‘Kumari 21 F’ Avinash uncle is my screen father. There is very good variety and dimension in narration. Sagar in music and Reddy of Bahubali cameraman have given good results disclosed Pranam Devaraj. Meanwhile this subject of Telugu film came to Pranam four times. Finally he accepted it as his debut film in Kannada.
Nidi Kushalappa says this is a film with love and twist in the tale. As a model she comes to Bengaluru and that tag for her creates difficult moments. How she gets support from Siddu and friends is crux of the film.
Senior actress Sangeetha was baffled with the message ‘Please come for Kumari 21 F’ media briefing. I had not acted in this film why she is invited was her question. The title was not kept when she signed the film was the reason.
Akshay and Manoj explained the role they have played. Co director Devaraj Palan preferred not to speak.
