I hope to finish the work by the end of the month. The shooting of the film is expected to start in the month of December. I have been assisting in writing the script by Ram Narayan.

Power Star Puneet Raj Kumar released the audio album of Nagashekhar directed Sanju Weds Geetha starring Sreenagara Kitty and Ramya in the lead. Many film land dignitaries were present in the function along with the artists and technicians of the film besides Actor Yogish who has become a close friend to Kitty these days.
Power Star Puneet wished the film and its audio a big success. Though the film's director Nagashekhar who himself anchored the function had called all the dignatories on the dias, he had forgotten to call Mohan or his brother Shyam who had acquired the rights of the audio.
Mohan was just waiting outside the room in which the audio function was held. Film's Music director Jessie Gift was conspicuous by his absence. Sadhu Kokila who had done the background music for the film was however present and had lot of appreciation for the film's director, artists and technicians for making a wonderful film.
Nagashekhar said that Sanju Weds Geetha was his dream project and he had put his heart and soul for the film. Thanking the producers who have backed him to the hilt, he also made special mention of actress Ramya who had supported the film more than being an actor in the film. He said all the technicians and artists have put in their best efforts. And many of the artists have even worked free of cost just for his friendship.
"I have used Ramya's name as the presenter of the film. She is the Sandalwood queen now. For this film she has done so much that I can only remember such things through using her name as a presenter.
Normally it is a practice in the film industry to use the names of financiers or people who have largely helped the making of the film as presenters. Ramya has done the same thing to us' said Nagashekhar, leaving no body in doubt that she has financed for the film. Sources close to the film unit said Ramya's financial aid to the film is to the extent of nearly Rs. 40 to Rs. 50 lacs.
Ramya said that she had enjoyed working in the film and Kitty was a very good co-star for her. She said the music of the film will surely rock as much as the film itself.
Kitty thanked the producers and director for giving him an opportunity to work in a wonderful film which will remain in his memory for a long time.
The producer said that though Nagashekhar had said that the initial expenditure of the film will be around Rs. 60 to Rs. 70 lacs, the film has now cost already Rs. 4 crores. A song has to be still picturised, he added.
