The small screen is growing big. It is becoming ‘Anna’…it is not ‘Thangi’ at all. In the generation of employment, money and popularity has already superseded the big screen.
With a channel like ‘Suvarana’ all big stars of big screen coming to accept the assignments the Big screen has literally become ‘Small’ – in Sadhu Kokila language big screen is 30 and small screen is 90!
Suvarna flagship already boasting with ace directors like Shivamani, Master Anand, Ravi Garani, Sihikahi Chandru, Bala Suresh, Milana Prakash etc has now added to its kitty a decent and delectable director Mahesh Babu who gave hits like Akash, Arasu and Meravanige.
The small screen is like ‘Lender of last Resort’ the salient features of Reserve Bank of India. That is especially for the big screen artists.
For one television serial ‘Anna Thangi’ there is Shashikumar, Mahesh Babu and V Harikrishna working for it shows the supremacy of Suvarna. Besides three major ones Master Kishen will also be roped in says Dr Suresh Sharama who is producing for his son Dhruv Sharma actor and cricketer. The London based Ruby Cine Krafts is the producing banner of ‘AT’. I have told my son to take a look at a sister which he does not have in real life from ‘AT’ added Sharma.
Suvarana giving delectable programs very regularly is coming close to Udaya TV in popularity and come January with two big ones we are going to be the front runner says Anoop Chandrasekhar. All our fictions are doing well and Krishna Rukmini is best among all. We have added the production value off late and for ‘Anna Thangi’ we got hold of the opinion of the viewers as to what kind of television serial they want. It was possible from focus group study and majority of people have told we want a serial on brother and sister relationships. We have the policy of co exist with genuine work in healthy way says AC.
Breaking away from monotony and giving something liked by the people is the attempt of ‘AT’ says Sudheendra the fiction head.
This is a rural oriented television serial AT says ace director Mahesh Babu. I have worked in TV serials before coming to cinema says Mahesh Babu. Shivu Hiremath story moved me to take up this serial and there is a ‘Feel’ from this television serial. What we are missing, we are giving in AT.
Anna Thangi is telecast at 6.30 pm at Suvarna satellite channel from 3rd October, 2011.
