Music of Nitin-Bhavana starrer “Hero” is unveiled on Wednesday night at Hotel Fortune Katriya, Hyderabad. The film made on Manyam Entertainments is directed by screen baddie GV Sudhakar Naidu alias GV. It has music by Mani Sharma. Aditya Music is marketing the album.
Hero Srikanth released the audio CD and presented the first number to Tarun. It was C. Kalyan who unveiled the audio cassette, presenting it to director Karunakaran. The dignitaries on the dais included Nitin (hero), Rajiv Kanakala, GV, Manyam Ramesh (producer), Kota Srinivasa Rao, Satyam Rajesh, Bhaskarabatla, Anant Sriram, dialogue writer Nivas, Tirupati Prakash and others. The trailers and song bits were screened to the gathering.
Quality entertainment rather than business: Kalyan
C. Kalyan said: “Manyam Ramesh is one of the very few producers who hold great commitment to their profession. They care more for quality entertainment rather than mere business. GV Sudhakar Naidu (GV) proved his mettle as a superb actor with his 150 films. I am sure; GV will become a big director with this film. Nitin will have brilliant future with this film. I wish the entire unit best of luck.”
Good team is GV’s strength: Kota
Kota Srinivasa Rao said: “Nitin looks very handsome in the trailers and I saw him so on the sets. I particularly mention about the skills of cinematographer Ram Prasad and Mani Sharma as music director. These two are great assets to the film. I worked for 14 days for the film. When people see the film, they will find GV’s direction highly skillful as if done by a very senior director. Moreover, GV likes me very much because we all worked together in villainous roles. Manyam Ramesh will reach the levels of a Ramanaidu and VB Rajendra Prasad. I wish GV a grand success.”
Rajiv Kanakala said: “Nitin looks awesome in the trailers. I am very happy to be amidst a healthy gathering. I wish Hero unit all the very best.”
Srikanth said: “I am happy that one among us (actors) is becoming a director. GV is very close to all the film fraternity. Two years ago, GV told me a subject. That time I predicted that GV would become a very big director. And today, it became a reality.”
Stylish movie in my career: Nitin
Nitin said: “This is my second stylish film after Sye. New hairstyle, costumes, tattoo and such things make me very stylish. When GV narrated me the script, he showed each and every getup of mine along with costumes, dialogues and pattern on his laptop. I am very much thrilled at his home work and commitment. I hope GV will become a very great director and will not turn arrogant in future.”
Manyam Ramesh said: “When GV came to me and narrated a subject, that sounded very violent. I asked him to bring another subject. Immediately, he came with a very cute love story with lots of entertainment. I got shocked with his versatility in subjects. Being an artiste himself, GV has directed the film to finer levels. Cinematographer Ramprasad is his favorite choice. The film was finished in 70 days. In fact, I never bothered about budget or working days. The fastness of GV made the film possible in such a record short time in my banner.”
Thanks to film industry and audience: GV
GV thanked his family members, producer Manyam Ramesh, hero Nitin and all the cast and crew of the film, with special mention to Kota Srinivasa Rao, “my well-wisher.” “Today, the film industry feels that I am their person. They call me Mana GV and that is the sense of belongingness. There are two types of producers – Accountants and Creators. Manyam Ramesh comes into the second category. He provided me the best technicians. He helped me a lot and stood by me to create a good film. When I narrated the subject, it was finalized in just 24 hours. I am thankful to Nitin and his father Sudhakar Reddy. There are forty prime artistes in my film. Heroine Bhavana is like my sister. She reminds of Soundarya, whom I considered as my own sister. Kota Srinvasa Rao is my favorite actor and I personally feel it. I am thankful to him for his blessings. I hope I did my best to give a pucca stylish entertainer as I promised. I thank my father (he said with folded hands pointing to the sky)”. As he said he couldn’t control the emotions. With tears in his eyes, he retired to his seat.
