Trailers of the movie were also projected on this eve.
SS Rajamouli said, “I don’t want my film to be the last movie in which Chiranjeevi acted. I request him to do another movie. Producer Allu Arvind and executive producer Bhogavally Prasad never came to the sets. That shows the kind of confidence they have on me. Ram Charan Teja might have been upset with me for the kind of the delay this film took. But he must have been satisfied the way trailers shaped up. I love horse riding and I could do horse riding while directing this movie. This kind of extravagant movie was never made in Telugu. Keeravani always score better music for this movie. And the music of this movie is also very good. He also penned two songs for this movie.”
Ram Charan Teja said, “I am feeling little upset because the movie release date got delayed. But i am happy because the movie turned out to be really good film. Telugu people are going to be proud of this movie. I like Keeravani’s music a lot and he is very good at melody. I saw Bangaru Kodi Petta song many times and I feel that i would do justice even if I do 10% of what my father did. Lots of people are thinking that Magadheera is a pouranikam. But it is a love story with action backdrop. Keeravani is giving life to this movie with his music and rerecording. Everybody worked hard. I am planning to have two releases from the next year onwards.”
Pawan Kalyan said, “Charan took the classes for horse riding since when he was a five year old kid. Charan is going to enhance the image and popularity of Chiranjeevi by five times. This film will create records and will remain as a good movie.”
Magadheera is like a visual poetry - Chiranjeevi
Chiranjeevi said, “Attending this function is like home coming. I always trusted hard work. Be it cinema or politics. Politics is a different playground unlike cinema industry. I never concentrated on politics when i was doing films. And I am not going to think about films when I am in politics. I did a film titled Magadheerudu in the past. It is just a coincidence that Magadheera title was chosen for this movie. Keeravani is a highly talented music director and a thorough hard worker. Keeravani made some other tune for Bangaru Kodipetta song and I didn’t like it. He understood and came up with the final tune and I loved it a lot. The lyric for this song was ‘smuggled goods bandi vachenandi’. We changed the lyrics later. Prabhudeva put his heart and soul into choreography of the song. Prabbudeva used to ask for retakes and people around us used to wonder why Chiranjeevi is unable to do those steps in first instance. Hence we shifted to Dolphin hotel and rehearsed the steps for four days. Charan Teja did terrific steps in this movie. I also appear in the song for a few seconds. It’s been a long time since a movie based on rebirths is made in Telugu. Magadheera is like a visual poetry. SS Rajamouli will be the number one Telugu music director. His family members also think about movies all the time. I felt jealous after watching Charan’s acting in this movie. Charan did well in horse riding episodes. Charan is like a wood which SS Rajamouli carved into a fine sculpture like Amarasilpi Jakkanna. Srihari came forward to do an important role in this movie. Producer Allu Arvind is a gusty producer and spent enormous amount of money. Charan is like a gem for mega family and it is up to the fans to protect him like a shield.”
