YVS Chowdary to direct two sequels to his hit films
Chennai: Telugu filmmaker YVS Chowdary, who is awaiting the release of his directorial venture ‘Rey’, is keen to direct sequels to two of his Telugu hits ‘Lahiri Lahiri Lahirilo’ and ‘Seethayya’ - over the next two years.
"As soon as I complete `Rey`, I will begin work on two sequels to my hit films. While `Krishna Mukunda Murari` will be a sequel to `Lahiri Lahiri Lahirilo`; `Evari Mata Veenadu` will be a sequel to action-drama `Seethayya`," Chowdary said.
"I`m done with the scripting for the both the films and will soon start hunting for the cast. Scripting usually takes a lot of time. Therefore, I completed it even before announcing the film. I will start working on one of the films very soon," he added.
He will also produce the films under his home banner Bommarillu Films.
Asked if he believe there is a market for sequels, he said: "Sequels to hit films always have a good market provided they are made with a distinction. Audiences would love to know how the story of a successful prequel will be taken forward."
Since nearly two years, Chowdary has been busy shooting for Telugu musical love story ‘Rey’.
"It`s a musical love story featuring two debutants. I spent more time on the project because it required such attention and since most of the film was shot abroad, we had to spend a lot of time travelling," he added.
The film features Chiranjeevi`s nephew Varun Tej and Shabana Azmi`s niece Saiyami Kher in lead roles. It also features Shraddha Das in an important role.
