"Mortaged my house, staked everything I owned so that a never before told true story of sex trafficking is made into a feature film “Naa bangaaru Talli”(www.naabangaarutalli.com). I had to tell this to the world before I go to my grave!!!
It has won seven international awards and three national awards, and everybody who has seen the film says ”I thought this will be a award film, but this is super family thriller”
And yet I struggle to find a distributer. I need Rs. 15 lakhs to have a modest release across Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. And I seek your support to make it happen as I hope to release “Naa bangaaru Talli” by end October 2014. I have to raise this by 4th October 2014 so that I can order for the publicity material/TV ads/newspaper Ads/hoardings/posters etc and also get the theaters. Contribute whatever you can to ensure this story is heard by all. All contributions should reach the following on or before 4th October." - Sunita Krishnan.

About the movie:
Provocative, shocking and surprisingly tender amidst an explosion of unbridled emotions, “Naa Bangaaru Talli” (My Dearest Daughter) in Telugu explores the consequences of sex trafficking, testing the vulnerability of trust in human relations. Srinivas is a wonderful and devoted father to Durga, and he provides her the best. Working in the city and maintaining his family in a small town works well for him for years. One day everything is shattered when Durga comes unannounced to the city to appear for an interview concerning her college admission. Durga’s life is brutally torn apart as Srinivas wrestles with grief, remorse, self pity and guilt.
The film has garnered both national and international recognition winning several awards this year.
