Raj Madiraju's new film titled Aithe 2.0
Director Raj Madiraju (of Rushi, Andhra Pori fame) has announced his next film, Aithe 2.0 (Aithe was a film made by Gunnam Gangaraju some years back and his permission was taken to use the title.)
Aithe 2.0 is produced by Dr Hemanth Vallapu Reddy, Dr Ravi N Rathi and K Vijaya Rama Raju for the Firm 9 Pictures banner.
"I did films with different subjects earlier," says Raj Madiraju. "Aithe 2.0 is a techno thriller, which focuses on the ill-effects of technology and social media on the youth. Though the young people today are not concerned about their surroundings, immersed in social networking, someone is watching them. Who is it? The film will discuss about it. There is a good message for youth in this movie.”
The cast and crew will be announced shortly.
