Hi to Chiru Fans across the Globe! My name is Balabommala.
(My colleagues call me Chirupicchodu for I bunk half
day of my duties whenever a new Chiru movie releases)
blood group is O +ve. My character is Be Positive.
the first time I met Chiru (10th December 2000 @ 6:30P.M)
when he came to RamaNaidu Studios Preview theatre along with
his wife and Mr. Vijayabapineedu to watch the rush of Anji.
The first thing I did when I saw him was "SAASHTANGA
PRANAMAM" (fell down to touch his feet) and when he lifted
me, I kissed him on his left cheek without asking his permission.
He asked me very gently - 'Daddy' cinema chusaava? But I responded
to him in a complete -ve manner saying, 'You may be 45 but
you are any time 25 in your fans views - please don't do the
roles of a father?' Then he smoothened me by saying 'watch
the coming movies - I won't disappoint you. (Chiru played
the role of a father in Daddy and Andarivadu but they both
failed at the box office).
time - I met him at RavindraBharathi where Chiru had done
Nutokka Jillala Andagadu NutanPrasad's felicitation. He smiled
at me & tried to recognize me by my name. I was like trying
to walk in the air when he tried to recognize me.
time - I met him at Ramanaidu studios floor where the shooting
of 'Radhe Govinda' of Indra was happening. He asked me to
have lunch & go.
time - I met him at Ali House, Secunderabad in 'Andharivadu'
shooting. I went there to invite him to my Marriage (Feb 2005).
He shook hand with me and said that he will be busy in the
net practice for the Star Cricket (Feb 13th). Then I tried
to convince him that I am the greatest fan of him by showing
the blood donor cards (I donated blood to Chiranjeevi blood
camp - 4 times on my NRI brother Prasad Balabommala's Birthday
i.e Feb 4th) and the tickets of all his movies (I have the
habit of keeping the counterfoils of all the Chiru cinema
tickets) and the title 'Magamaharaju' in my wedding card and
his pocket calendar in my purse and at last I became emotional
and started singing Galee galee mein shor hai - Supreme Superstar
Star star - Mega star star
. Nagababu, AlluArvind, Gemini Kiran, G.K.Mohan
(Gemini TV), Venugopal, Cinestar Prabhu ( PROs) who were on
the location were watching my mad deeds with a smile. Finally,
he hugged me and said 'Think of the rest of the fans who would
be waiting to watch me on their Television sets - If I don't
play, they will feel bad' and gifted me an autograph and called
Allu Tataji (Chiru's personal photographer) and asked him
to click. This is my only photograph with Chiru though I met
him several times personally.
also met him for the 5th, 6th and 7th time @ South Film Fare
awards & Santosham Film fare awards functions that happened
in Gacchibowli Stadium & Chitranjali anniversary @ Ravindra
Bharathi, but this time - I was among the thousands of spectators
watching him live.
will wait for the next chance to meet him again personally
so that I can share my experience again with you people.
to Jeevi & Idlebrain for letting my emotions to be shared
with Chiru's fans and Thanks to all of you for reading this.
