Dhee - the surprise hit of the year - celebrated 150 days function in a grand style at Shilpa Kala Vedika on the evening on 8 September. Dasari Narayana Rao attended this function as chief guest. The other guests include Napoleon, T Subbirami Reddy, Ambarish, Satrugna Sinha, Sushil Kumar Shinde K Raghvendra Rao, Lagadapati Raj Gopal, Vishnu, Srihari, Genelia, Krishna Vamsi, Ramya Krishna, Anushka, Jayaprada, Prema, Jayaprada, Kalyanram, Mohan Babu, Vishnuvardhan (Kannada), Bharati Vishnu, Krishnam Raju, Brahmanandam etc.

It was me who recognized talent in Vishnu - Dasari
Speaking on the occasion Dasari said, “The success of Dhee is real and genuine. Mohan Babu faced lots of humiliation and struggles before reaching this position. He completed 550 films and proved himself as the best. He did not want to make Vishnu a hero. He wanted Vishnu to take over the management of his educational institution ‘Sri Vidya Niketan’. When I visited that place once, Vishnu did a dance program in the anniversary function. I observed lots of ease and grace in Vishnu and asked Mohan Babu to make Vishnu as hero. I see a lot of maturity in Vishnu as an actor between his first film and Dhee. I always feel that director is the captain of the ship. I proved it by making many successful films irrespective of who acted in it. I feel the supreme hero of Dhee is the director Seenu Vytla. He did excellent characterizations though the story is a normal one. This film gives a great score for remaking it in any of Indian languages. Vishnu is using all the opportunities available to him and is also being very disciplined.”

Srihari said, “This is my first film that ran for 150 days after I became a hero. Vishnu gave amazing perfoemance in this film. I felt that this film would be a superhit when I heard the story. The Shankar Goud character donned by me got good recognition.”

T Subbirami Reddy said, “Mohan Babu is not only a good artist but also a gusty man. It is becoming difficult for films to run for 50 days. But this film ran for 150 days. It must be a great day for Mohan Babu to see his son succeed as hero. It is just the beginning for the career of Vishnu.”

Ambarish said, “Dhee became success due to entertainment, fights and sentiment. Mohan Babu is a very good friend of me. I feel happy because my friend’s son succeeded as a hero. Vishnu inherited the talent from his father.”

Today is my most memorable day - Mohan Babu
Mohan Babu said, “Seenu Vytla did a terrific work as the director. I would like to thank Mallidi Satyanarayana Reddy and Seenu Vytla for giving my son a good success. Today is the most memorable day for me. I felt really good when Dasari changed my name from Bhakta Vatsala Naidu to Mohan Babu. And I am experiencing the same kind of emotion today when my son tasted success.”

Seenu Vytla said, “I wanted to do a film with Vishnu when I first saw him in another film. We worked really hard on the script of this film. I would like to thank cameraman Prasad for staying with me an giving constant encouragement throughout the shooting of the film. Dasari and Mohan babu helped a lot for the release of this film. Vishnu is a very talented artist and he gave his best for this film. I will make a bigger hit than this film with Vishnu.”

Kalyan Ram said, “Vishnu and Mohan Babu are very close to me. My father’s happiness knew no bounds when I got my first hit Athanokkade. Now Mohan Babu is experiencing it with Dhee. When Mohan Babu asked me to act in his film, I refused it because Mohan Babu will dominate me. I wish that Vishnu will become a bigger hero in the future.”
