Manchu Manoj plays the role of a recurring Amnesia patient in his presently-under-production film Nenu Meeku Thelusa, and hence the title. Hindi film actresses Riya Sen and Sneha Ullal (of Lucky fame) are the leading ladies of this film that marks the debut of director Ajay Sastri. Producer Lakshmi Manchu arranged a press meet on 24th Feb where in the film's cast and crew spoke about the film and their roles.
"The first time I met Manoj I did not like him. I thought he was showing off a lot of attitude" actress Sneha Ullal said "but over a period of time we became good friends." Sneha is portraying the role of an IPS officer in this film. "This will be my second film in Telugu. My first film, directed by Karunakaran, will be releasing in April."
Manchu Manoj appreciated the film's concept and described it as a novel concept for the Telugu audiences.
"This is my first film in Telugu."actress Riya Sen said "I had earlier acted in a couple of Tamil films. I was really impressed by Ajay's narration and accepted almost immediately. My character, that of Manoj's love interest, has a mysterious side to it. This is not a typical Telugu film".
"After Manoj heard the subject he took me to his father Mohan Babu and we got the green signal" director Ajay Sastri said "Manoj went to the US all by himself for his style in this film. This film is very unique, something that has not been showcased on the big screen before".
"This project is done by all friends. We have a very young and new crew for this film" producer Lakshmi Manchu said "The film's trailer has received an amazing response".
"Ajay and Manoj liked my work in Vishnu's film Krishnarjuna ('Yamaranju') and offered me this film" music director Achu, a former associate of M.M.Keeravani, said "it feels like I am working for my home banner. Ajay has given me a lot of freedom. I have composed four songs so far".
