Srinivas Mangam, who rose to fame with very successful Telugu debut “Ee Rojullo”, says it was his family who convinced him to do upcoming film “Pusthakamlo Konni Pageelu Missing”, which is Telugu remake of Tamil comedy “Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom”. He didn’t even see the film before even signing the film because his family had watched it and suggested that he would be apt for the role.

He says the reason he didn’t watch the film is because he didn’t want to the original to have any influence on his acting style.

Srinivas plays a character that suffers from short term memory loss in the film, which revolves around the friendship between four friends. The film features a host of debutants and is likely to be released in July.
