Venu Sriram from Karimnagar is making his debut as a director of Siddharth starrer 'Oh My Friend'. He had worked as an associate director in films directed by Bhaskar, Sukumar, Srikanth Addala and Vamsi Paidipally. Dil Raju was so confident about Venu that he announced the film before the script got ready.
The highlight of the film will be the rock number that will be scored by Rahul Raj from Kerala who won the Kerala State Award in 2010 for Ritu. Venu heard Rahul's music (from Ritu, a Malayalam film) on the net and roped him in. The movie deals with friendship and most of the incidents are straight out of the director's life about a friend in school. The film will start rolling in January. Ask who's Venu's dearest friend right now? It's Chaitanya Dantuluri who made Banam.
