Young director Nag Ashwin, who earned accolades and National Awards for Savitri has turned a producer with a film titled Jaathi Ratnalu. The movie features Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya’s hero Naveen Polishetty and happening young comedians Priyadarshi and Rahul Ramakrishna in lead roles.
The movie is ready for release before the Lockdown but the Pandemic spoiled the plan. However, the makers did not choose the OTT route and there is a good reason for it. Leading General Entertainment Channel, Gemini TV bagged the Satellite Rights of the film.
The makers managed to recover the total investment just from the sale of satellite rights. So, they are relaxed and are waiting for the theaters to open. Buzz is that the movie may release for the Republic Day weekend or Maha Sivaratri weekend. Jaathi Ratnalu is being directed by Anudeep KV. Radhan is composing music for the film.Follow @THEPANIPURI
