Salaam Venky, directed by actor-turned-director Revathy, stars Kajol a extremely brilliant actress and is produced by Suraj Singh, Shraddha Agrawal, and Varsha Kukreja. The team has started filming the first schedule. The movie was previously known as The Last Hurrah.
The story and people in the movie are based on a true occurrence. Salaam Venky will bring together Kajol and Revathy to tell the story of a deserving mother who overcame adversity. Kajol shared photos from her first day on set, writing, “Today, we go on the journey of a story that needed to be told, a road that needed to be followed, and a life that needed to be remembered. We can’t wait to tell you about #SalaamVenky’s unbelievable true story”.
Revathy talks about her first work with Kajol and why she chose this story for her “Sujata’s journey in Salaam Venky is one of my favourites. It’s not only relevant, but it’s also motivational. When Suuraj, Shraddha, and I started talking about this movie, Kajol was the first name that sprang to mind. Sujata’s gorgeous smile and soft yet energising eyes would make you believe that anything is possible, which is exactly how she is. I’m really looking forward to this partnership and working with Kajol on this ‘heartwarming tale.’
While the film’s other specifics are being kept hidden, we’re confident that this story will surely win your hearts!
Salaam Venky is directed by Revathy and produced by Suuraj Sinngh, Shraddha Agrawal, and Varsha Kukreja under the banners Blive Productions and Take 23 Studios.
