Tollywood movie "Pellaindhi Kaani", starring EVV Naresh and Kamalini Mukharjee, recently finished its shooting schedules. This is an EVV Satyanarayana and Narasimha Rao project on Rasi Movies banner, after a gap of 14 years. The film is going to release on October 12 th; its music, on or before September 25. EVV breaks the record of shooting the first Indian movie in Kashmir valley post declaration of the region as terrorist-zone.

EVV arranged a press meet to share his deep felt feelings and newborn love for Kashmir. "I visited Kashmir valley for the first time in my life for shooting of my son's film. I stayed there for fifty days, but I took the treasure priceless beauty to cherish for a lifetime".

The senior director felt emotional to say: "New Zealand and Austria put together can't equal two hoots of Kashmir valley. Our unit camped there for fifty days. I challenge. You (any filmmaker) can shoot 8 songs in Kashmir valley without repeating the locations. It is really heaven on earth, though we went there off season. My sincere thanks to J&K Chief minister Gulam Nabi Azad Ji and good old friend Kumar. I don't find any terrorist threat to tourism there. The people of Kashmir are pure and selfless like snow. You have excellent security arrangements there". Everybody wondered as to why EVV called the press. Was it to express his feelings on the beauty of Kashmir? Surely, it's a big yes. The later part of his words on the film was curt and can be summed up in a single line: It's about post-marital life. Kashmir valley naturally suggests honeymoon! Isn't it?

Kamalini Mukherjee, sporting blue jeans and white shirt, arrived after EVV finished his tribute to Kashmir valley. Interestingly, the heroine too repeated the words of EVV. She could provide some relief when said about her role – as Gayatri, modeled to nosedive into any matter. Beating around the bush is her aversion. She further hoped that she would be making it to the clouds after the film release-Telugu Cinemass.
