Meet Cute is a pleasant series with real conversations: Nani

Must read

PNS | Hyderabad

Nani’s sister, Deepthi Ganta, is making her debut as a director with the anthology Meet Cute. The web series is all set to stream on SonyLIV starting November 25.It strings together five different stories as an anthology. Varsha Bollamma, Sri Divya, Sameer, Ashwin Kumar, Satyaraj, Ruhani, Raja Chembolu, Rohini Molleti, Akanksha Singh, Deekshit Shetty, Alekhya Harika, Adash Sharma, Shiva Kandukuri, Sunaina, and others have played key roles in it.

Vijay Bulganin and Vasanth Kumar cranked the music, and Garry BH took care of the editing. Prashanthi Tipirneni produced Meet Cute under Wall Poster Cinema, and Nani is presenting it.

On Monday, Nani and Deepthi Ganta interacted with the Hyderabad media.Director Deepthi Ganta said, “A short film that I made some years ago was my first creative outing. When I wrote a short story and showed it to Nani, he asked me to write three to four stories so that an anthology could be made. Despite his prodding, I waited for inspiring thoughts to come to my mind. I like to interact with strangers during trips and other occasions. Meet Cute imagines situations where people who don’t know each other strike up conversations.

Their characters run into each other accidentally in Meet Cute. We come across such situations in our lives at various times. I am happy that talented artists have become part of the film. This is a drama set in urban areas.And despite that, the audience is going to relate to it. Nani asked me to write a nice love story as well for the anthology. I like to pen feel-good stories in the future as well.”

Meanwhile, Nani said, “I didn’t read the script of Meet Cute for many days, even though those in my family who had read it endorsed it gleefully. I gave it a reading after my sister pushed me to. It took me just a few pages to be immersed in the story. The scenes are so interesting. I would have produced Meet Cute even if someone else had been its writer-director. Had the script reached my office without the writer’s phone number, I would have done my best to trace that person and offered to produce it. The characters, their conversations, and the situations they encounter in Meet Cute are all very natural.

The stories are meant for OTT, not a film. When making a film, dramatic and cinematic liberties must be taken. In Meet Cute, the moves made by the characters and how the stories end are exciting. I don’t have a character in it that I would have played. Many assumed that I would be seen in a guest role. But I didn’t want to do anything for its sake.

The story has to demand it. Usually, the different stories in anthologies are directed by different directors. Meet Cute is different. Each story has been written by my sister. It’s a pleasant series with real conversations. The scenes that come between Rohini and Akanksha are very good. Wall Poster Cinema will always be at the forefront of supporting quality content.”
