Telugu Film Producers' Council President Tammareddy Bharadwaja released the audio of `Bank` (Telugu version), a multi-lingual movie, with Jackie Shroff, Raghuvaran, Rahul Dev, Abbas and Veda (Archana) playing the lead roles. Made on Arun Entertainments, the film is produced and directed by V. Arun Kumar (debut). It is a suspense thriller, dealing with bank heist running to Rs. 500 Crore. Mostly shot in Hyderabad and Mehaboob Studios in Mumbai, the film gets ready for release in the coming weeks. The music is released through Arun Music, the newly started music company of the director-producer himself.
Jackie Shroff said: "When I did my first film in Telugu `Astram`, I was so thrilled. Now, when Arun came to me with a script like this, I really liked it and immediately said ok. My costar Raghuvaran is a good friend of mine and Rahul Dev a talented artiste. Coming to Archana, she did play well. Abbas is another talented actor. I am thankful to you all (Telugu people) for all your support and love for me. In this film, I do the villain who operates the bank robbery. I also played villain in several Bollywood films. I wish best of luck to all of the team members."
Tammareddy Bharadwaja said: "I am a big fan of Jackie Shroff. I consider myself fortunate to sit besides him. I advise Arun Kumar (producer & director) to be frank in his expression all through his career. He has certainly launched a big project at the very beginning. I wish the Bank team a huge success."
Arun Kumar said: "Actually I wanted to produce this film. But, I wanted to direct this later, because I thought I alone could do justice to the story. I am thankful to Jackie Shroff, Rahul Dev, Raghuvaran, Abbas and Archana for their ready acceptance to do the film. I introduced Chinni Charan, a lyricist, as music director. His work is simply mind-blowing."
