Twenty years ago – On August 1, 1980 to be precise, new hope dawned in the country with the release of the much hyped movie ‘Ganga Addara’ directed by Ms. Sumitra Peries and produced by Ms. Milina Sumathipala. And today the much talked-about teledrama version of Ganga Addara is all set to unspool on Sirasa TV from November 27 at 8 pm – every Saturday and Sunday thereafter.
Well-known Sudharma Nethicumara who makes her debut as a tele drama producer produces the tele drama while it is directed by Saranga Mendis.
“Talking of the Ganga Addara tele drama I must reiterate that this is not the tele version of the Ganga Addara film. This is different and it’s based on the novel by Laticia Boteju. It is a beautiful love story that will certainly be embraced with love by today’s generation. I always believe in quality and perfection. You will certainly see these qualities in the Ganga Addara tele drama too. I have invested a large amount of money on this project. Had I invested it in business, the returns would have been manifold. But my passion for arts has made me give my heart and soul to this project. This is my first step and I hope this would be a significant step in career as a producer too,” said Sudharma who also started work on the second part of ‘Ganga Addara’ last week.
