Here is a research work on who exactly in ‘Nagavalli’, producer cum director Shankar Arun has gone on a hunt of ‘Nagavalli’ background to Thiruvanthapura. Contacted the priest Mr Varma, shot in the Nagavalli palace for seven days and invited Varmaji for a role. He has referred the books and finally believes there is ‘Athma’ of Nagavalli. Director has also referred the Archaeological department book connected to this ‘Nagavalli’ episode that is in Kerala Government for reference.
Although personally Shanker Arun believes on ‘Athma’ of Nagavalli after study, in the film he brings in whether ‘Athma is there or not’. From Sapnoki Rani I have lost all investment. In this second film I wanted to be everything precise and tidy. For that from the day one PRO Nagendra has supported me. In fact in the entire cinema industry one who showed good path is PRO Nagendra and I must thank him he addressed the media on the pre release meet of ‘Nagavalli Vs Apthamithraru’. The reference of ‘Aptha Mithraru’ and ‘Aptha Rakshaka’ are also made in this film says Shanker Arun. Leaving a question mark at the end of the film director cum producer Shanker Arun has given up the main theatre concept for this film.
He is introducing new talents like Yuvan, Rocky, Anil and others. It is because producer Ramesh Yadav is doing ‘Aptha Mithraru 2’ he has changed the title to ‘Nagavalli Vs Apthamithraru’. For the horror elements he has good technical support and whether the content ends with this film, Shanker Arun has no answer. It might figure up in sequel he opined.
Sham handled the camera for this film and it was a great experience of shoot for seven days at Palace in Thiruvanthapura he says. Co producer Praveen says it is one man show of Shanker Arun.
Vikram Karthik is in two shades in this film. in the first half he is a reporter searching for Nagavalli and he is part of his own search.
Vaishnavi Chandran who never believed in God started believing in God after this film shoot. She plays psychiatry student and gets in to a flashback of dancer with traditional style. I had to put on weight and lose it later for this film adds Vaishnavi.
Shivakumar has executed all proceedings for the film and he is main backbone says director cum producer Shanker Arun.
