Some of the corporate groups like FM radio, Reliance and Pantaloons have become partners in the movie’s production.“The movie is just going to be spectacular,” Kammula repeatedly asserted.

Mickey J. Meyer, who scored music, was also present. A trailer of Introduction of the Cast was screened to the playing of the Introduction Song – Happy Days. The gathering unanimously gave a big applause to the number.

Sekhar Kammula commenced introducing the cast in a simple manner. “We actually commenced Happy Days in November last year. We finished selections in February this year. There was great response from the applicants globally. Of the 20,000 applications, we selected seven. Though it was a difficult task, we really enjoyed it all.”

Happy Days is my beloved son:

Sekhar Kammula termed Happy Days as his beloved son. “My previous films Anand and Godavari were my two daughters. I should be very careful in bringing up my son as I am afraid he might take to bad ways.” He asserted that Happy Days would become a memorable trendsetter. “Happy Days reflect the present trend. This is also going to be the Future Trend. It is not just a movie. It is the perfect piece of a Human Relations project. College Days and Students make a beautiful entertainment for the present audience.”

Referring to the music by Mickey, Sekhar Kammula said: “Mickey gave superb music. This time, my confidence is greater than my previous films Anand and Godavari. I can only say, his music is on a par with AR Rahman.”
