'Yes, it's true that I'm doing a Telugu version of 'Vicky Donor' titled 'Dhaana Karna'. But I will start shooting for it only after I complete my upcoming project, most likely to be titled '1 2 3',' Sreedhar told IANS.
The director has also recorded some songs for 'Dhaana Karna' and says that the script has come out very well. However, he's still in discussion with well-known actors to play the protagonist. 'Vicky Donor', which was Bollywood actor John Abraham's debut production venture, is a light-hearted take on the taboo attached to infertility, sperm donation and artificial insemination.
John's JA Entertainment co-produced the film with Eros International and Shoojit Sircar had directed it. The film's cast included two newcomers - Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam and Annu Kapoor. An IIT-Madras graduate, Sreedhar worked for 13 years in reputed IT organisations before turning director with 'Snehagitam' and 'It's My Love Story'.
Shooting for '1 2 3', which means 1-life 2-loves and 3-hearts, will start from Sep 24 and will be released after Makar Sankranti. 'It's a contemporary love story with Mahat Raghavendra, who plays a computer hacker after failing in 16 subjects in engineering', said the director. There will be two female leads in the film and their names will be announced soon. M.V.K. Reddy is producing it under his banner Shirdi Sai Combines.
