'Lucky Lakshman' is an out-and-out family entertainer telling the curious incidents in the life of a youngster who feels that he is unlucky although everyone around him says he is so lucky. Produced by Haritha Gogineni and Ramya Prabhakar on Vaishnavi Arts and Dattatreya Media, the film features Bigg Boss fame Sohel and Mokksha as the lead pair. The film's puja event was held today in Hyderabad in a grand manner. The event was attended by guests such as Miriyala Ravindra Reddy, Bekkem Venugopal, Puppala Ramesh and Raja Ravindra, all of whom handed over the script to the makers. Praveen Sattaru gave the first clap. C Kalyan directed the first shot. Producer Appi Reddy unveiled the film's motion poster.
Speaking on the occasion, actor Sohel said, "I am not accepting one movie after another just like that. I am accepting projects only if I am convinced that they have got a strong story. My directors and producers are passionate when it comes to script choices. In terms of technical output and other aspects, they are uncompromising. 'Lucky Lakshman' is going to be made by efficient technicians. We need female producers who make movies with a rich taste. I thank the director and the producers for this opportunity."
Producer Haritha Gogineni said, "I began my career in the IT sector and have been into the realty sector. Director AR Abhi is passionate and talented. Looking at his talent and passion, I came forward to produce this movie although I am a stranger to the film industry. Abhi's story is quite fresh. I and my friend Ramya Prabhakar studied the crafts and what is required to make a film for six months before taking the plunge. We chose Sohel for the lead role because he is a hard worker. I thank Anup Rubens and cinematographer I Andrew for coming on board. Editor Prawin Pudi and lyricist Bhaskarabhatla are also working on our film."
Director AR Abhi said, "I have been an Assistant Director before. When I wanted to turn into a director, Haritha Gogineni garu asked me to narrate a story. She liked my story and I am here. That's why I have used the word 'Lucky' in the title. The title is also apt for the story. Sohel accepted the film in the first sitting. Although this is a debut for the producers, they have roped in a highly experienced team. I hope this distinctive film will be liked by the audience."
Producer Appi Reddy said, "Sohel is lucky, much like the title of the film goes. That's why he is bagging novel films back to back. I hope he becomes the Ayushman Khurrana of Telugu cinema. The motion poster for 'Lucky Lakshman' is creative. I wish the team all the best."
Cinematographer I Andrew said, "I am working on a love story once again. Abhi's narration is superb. I promise to give the audience a visual treat."
Suresh Kondeti said, "Sohel has been picking projects carefully after the Bigg Boss stint. Mr. Pregnant, his upcoming movie, will be loved by the female audience. I am happy that Haritha Gogineni garu is getting introduced to the industry."
Heroine Mokksha said, "I feel lucky to be getting to work with senior talents. I thank the director and the producers.
