Speaking at the media meet of Oh Manapenne, the film's hero Harish Kalyan has said that he wished to remake Pelli Choopulu in 2016.
"The film's director Kaarthikk and I wanted to remake the film. But there was no producer to bankroll my films those days. Later, the opportunity came but slipped away and went to another producer. In 2018, the opportunity to remake the same film came my way and I called Kaarthikk Sundar. Just like the protagonist in the film, I used to think that I'm good at nothing so could relate more with the character", he said.
Talking about Priya Bhavani Shankar, Harish said: "She is a wonderful costar and despite having eighteen films to her kitty, Priya came to the sets on time and even attended today's media meet. She doesn't have any starry tantrums at least not on our sets(laughs)".
Oh Manapenne is all set to release this October 22 on Disney + Hotstar.
