Kandireega is a 2011 Telugu language romantic comedy – film directed by Santosh Srinivas and produced by Bellamkonda Suresh under Sri Sai Ganesh Productions studio. The film features Ram and Hansika Motwani in the lead roles. The film features music by Thaman and released on August 12 2011. The film was initially announced in October 2009 with Ravi Teja playing the lead role and with Krishna Vamsi as director, with the producer announcing the film as a partly fantasy venture.
The film progressed in pre-production with Sameera Reddy, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sneha Ullal being considered to portray the heroine role, whilst the fantasy elements in the original script were removed. In April 2010, it was revealed that the producer and Teja had fallen out and he was therefore replaced by another actor, Ram.
Despite indications that Samantha would portray the lead female role, filming began in October 2010 with Ram and Hansika Motwani, whilst actress Swati Reddy shot scenes the following month for a guest appearance. Ram indicated on his Twitter account that the film had three lead female roles, and reports suggested that Nisha Aggarwal was signed on. Another leading lady Shriya Saran has appeared in a song sequence for the film.
During the first schedule, events on the set of the film became the reason for the Telugu film industry strikes of 2010 after Telugu film fighters attacked Tamil film technicians Chennai on the sets of the film in December 2009. Enraged by this, producers called for a bandh the next day but however, film workers declared a strike immediately after that for an indefinite period.
The crisis affected the whole film industry and no films were shot in Andhra Pradesh during late December and early January during negotiations. After filming had restarted, the original music director Chakri was ousted from the project and replaced by Thaman in March 2011. Source: Wikipedia
