Recently in our previous interactions, both actresses Ketika Sharma and Priya Prakash Varrier confessed that changes have been made to the original story of Bro. Today, we have with us the producer of Pawan Kalyan and Sai Dharam Tej’s Bro, and the man behind People Media Factory, TG Vishwa Prasad, who shared more details about the film that is all set to release in theatres on July 28.
Beginning with how Bro happened to him, he shared, “When we were looking for the right project, Trivikram garu referred the project to us after watching the original work of Samithirakani in Tamil. Taking his advice we moved forward. Definitely, Bro is one of the largest releases for People Media Factory. Working with someone like Powerstar Pawan Kalyan is very prestigious to all of us.”
Vinodhaya Sitham, the Tamil original, is a relatively short film that was shot in just 20 days. However, no this film is being made at a prestigious level. Speaking of this, he shared, “Definitely, Bro has a different span altogether. It is mounted on a bigger scale. It banks on its story solely. However, the songs and family emotions that are shown in the film will entertain audiences in a big way. Bro has commercial elements to ensure that it suits our audiences. The soul of the movie is the same as Vinodhaya Sitham. But the screenplay and commercial elements are different.” The producer is super confident about the success of the film when it arrives in cinemas – he credits Pawan Kalyan’s performance and his experience for it. “With the first six minutes of introduction, Pawan Kalyan will be there in the film throughout the runtime. It has very strong emotions and strong bonding. Bro will certainly reach the expectations of the audiences.”
Did you know Sai Dharam Tej was the production house’s first choice for the movie? Well, yes, Vishwa Prasad confessed this during the interaction with the media on Wednesday.
There’s a sort of political turmoil in Andhra Pradesh with the involvement of Pawan Kalyan. Producer TG Vishwa Prasad said that he would see films and politics differently. He shared, “There might be a few incidents that had an impact on films. Generally, I don’t think Bro would face such a situation in Andhra Pradesh. When Vakeel Saab was released in theatres, it suffered. I don’t think that would repeat again. And no proposal was made to increase the ticket prices in theatres since Bro is produced well within our budget. There’s no need to demand an extra amount. No extra shows sought from the State government”
The team is next working on the trailer, after which, they plan to release other promotional songs and content related to Bro.
On a lighter note, Vishwa Prasad has shared that it has been his big dream to work with Megastar Chiranjeevi. “I’d want to work with him, of course. And other actors, that’s my effort. Since childhood, I have been a big fan of Megastar,” he said, adding, “It’s been more than five years since I’ve come into the film industry. We have been putting in effort for a long time. Small films certainly have risks involved. Big films bring good profits before you actually release them. Small films have that risk, and you have to live with the risks. As per my knowledge, there are no risks in big films. But you don’t know until you face it.”
People Media Factory is in the news of late for its choice of films. On what the company has in the pipeline for the coming years, he shared, “Bro is our 25th movie to be precise. And we have set a goal of making the fastest 100 films, very likely by the end of next year we will complete 50. As of now, we have five films that have completed shooting and are ready to be released in theatres. Around 15 are in various stages of production. As many as 30 films are in backend planning. As of now, five OTT movies are underway. The content factory that is set up by People Media Factory is aimed at bringing out originals from our end. The Content factory takes care of these things in the future. As of now, we have some 25 films ready to go on the sets. I have already done 25 films with the release of Bro on July 28. People Media Factory has fifty films ready in its kitty. Our plan further is to ensure that new content is produced from the content factory.”
