Gulf is the title of the upcoming Telugu movie that is going to release on the coming Friday. Sunil Kumar Reddy who made critically acclaimed films is the director of the film. On the occasion of the promotions of his film, the director has interacted with the media to reveal many interesting things about the movie.
How is it working for the movie?
This film Gulf is one of its kind movies and I am sure that this film will stand apart from all the films I worked in the past. This film is very close to my heart and it took two and half years for me to complete the project.
Why did it take long to complete the project?
The subject I chose requires a lot of time to complete. A lot of research underwent in the process of the filmmaking. This is the reason for taking a lot of time.
Why did you choose this as your subject?
Many films have come around the USA but no one made a film about Gulf struggles and migration. I wanted to deal this subject at any cost and started the film.
What is your aim behind making the film?
Many people from both the Telugu states are traveling to Gulf. They are facing a lot of struggles especially the women are facing many attrocities. I wanted to bring this to the notice of everyone.
What are the new things that you came to know during this research?
A lot of Telugu people are working in the Gulf countries. All of them are seriously working hard to make some money. It will be good if the government recognise them.
Do you think that the film will become a commercial hit?
Almost 50 lakh people in the Telugu states are aware of the struggles of the people in Gulf countries. If all these people watch the film, then it will surely become a commercial hit. I am confident that they will make the film a hit.
What are the other elements that are in the film?
There is a love story in the film. This itself is enough as a good commercial point. I am sure that all the audiences will like the film.
What is the release status?
I am sure that there won't be any hurdles for the release of my film. Approximately, the film's release will happen in 250 to 300 screens.
What are your upcoming projects?
I already did films like Oka Romantic Crime Katha, Oka Criminal Crime Katha. Now, I wanted to do a third part titled Romantic Criminals.
