Co-producer Madhura Sreedhar Reddy said – I am happy to produce a duet film with Gnanavel Raja under Studio Green. After the super hit love story like Baby, Anand’s yet another different love story film. Now variety of love stories are unfolding in Tollywood. In that sequence the duet also becomes a different kind of love story. Director Mithun has written a fantastic story. A talented team is working for this movie. All the best to the team.

Director Mithun Varadaraja Krishnan said – I’m happy to be introduced to Tollywood as a director with the film Duet. This is a good love story. Thanks to producer KE Gnanavel Raja for giving me the opportunity to be a director. I am also thankful to Anand. Madhura Sridhar is there to solve any problem our team has. Thanks to everyone who is supporting us.

Hero Anand Deverakonda said – Duet is a special movie for me. When he shared the title of this movie with his friends in the industry, he said, “It is a good title. It would have been better if we register it.” From there positive vibes started on the duet. Thanks to the producers Gnanavel Raja and Madhura Sridhar who selected me for this movie. Gnanavel garu has done big movies in Tamil with Surya and Karthi. Here I have to produce with my elder brother as well. Gnanavel Raja is going to do big movies in Telugu. I want the movies in that huge line-up to be successful. I feel very happy that GV Prakash Kumar is the music director of our film. I have been his fan since the movie Aadukalam. Ritika played a superb role in Ashokavanamlo Arjuna kalyanam movie.. I wish her all the best for this film. Mithun has written an amazing story. We are going to make a good movie with our team.

Heroine Ritika Nayak said – I was mesmerized when I heard the story of the duet. Curiosity arose as to when we will go for shooting. It is an honor to work with Anand. Thanks to director Mithun, producers Gnanavel and Sridhar for giving me this opportunity.

Producer KE Gnanavel Raja said – Just like I did movies in Kollywood with Surya and Karthi, here I did Nota with Vijay and I am producing a duet movie with Anand. I have known Anand for a long time. He is always smiling and positive. We wanted to give him his first blockbuster hit in our company. When this film was committed, he did not know that he was doing a film called Baby. The movie became a super hit. We didn’t get a chance to give Anand his first blockbuster. I like action and commercial entertainers more than love stories. But when Mithun told this story, I got emotional on many occasions. When I heard the story of the duet, I got the same feeling as I felt when I saw Atlee’s first movie Raja Rani. Mathura Sridhar is supporting us. Not only this film, he will continue to be a part of the projects we have done in our Studio Green organization. Our director said that Ritika’s acting is good. Wishing her all the best. GV Prakash was in Chennai and could not come. He said he will come to the next event. He has already given two songs for our movie. We will start the first schedule in a week. The entire team is confident that the duet will be a super hit.
