Director Srikanth Addala is back with another action-packed drama, Peddha Kapu 1, featuring Virat Karrna and Pragathi Srivastava in the lead roles. The movie hit screens last Friday and has garnered a positive response from audiences.
In a recent interview, Srikanth Addala, renowned for his family-oriented films like Kotha Bangaru Lokam and Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, revealed an interesting anecdote about his debut movie, Kotha Bangaru Lokam.
He mentioned that, initially, he pitched the story to Akkineni Nagarjuna for his son Naga Chaitanya and later to Ram Pothineni. But both the actors declined the opportunity to star in the film.
However, Kotha Bangaru Lokam became a sensational hit at the box office and marked a significant milestone in the careers of both the director Srikanth Addala and actor Varun Sandesh.
