I worked as gate keepter to watch Maro Charitra – Chota K Naidu
Chota K Naidu said, “I went to my uncle’s place in Kothapeta during the release time of Maro Charitra. I liked the movie so much and I didn’t have the money to watch it again. I joined the theatre playing Maro Charitra as gate keeper and they used to pay 50 paise per show. I used to watch all shows of Maro Charitra for free and I watched it for more than 250 times. I am very happy that Maro Charitra is being remade.”
Watched Maro Charitra five times with my gf – Allu Arvind
Allu Arvind said, “That was during my young days as producer and I wanted to produce a film with Kamal Hassan as hero and I went to Vizag to the shoot of Maro Charitra to book him. But Kamal Hassan didn’t give appointment for me for two days. Then I approached K Balachandar and got his recommendation and met Kamal Hassan. He said that he would act in my film only if I approach him with a good director. And the movie was never materialised. Later on the movie got released and it went onto become a blockbuster. I watched this movie with my girlfriend, who happens to be also my wife.”
Mickey has no insecurity – MM Keeravani
Music director MM Keeravani said, “After listening to the songs of Maro Charitra, I could sense that the music director Mickey has no insecurity. Most of our music directors use rhythm as cushioning in our music. But Mickey completed depended on the melody and scored songs. I would also like to appreciate Dil Raju for encouraging such music.”

Started as a small budget film, Maro Charitra is a big budget movie now – Dil Raju
Dil Raju said, “I was tensed to remake the timeless classic Maro Charitra when Ravi Yadav came up with the idea. I had to deliberate about 15 days to arrive at the decision of making the movie. Initially, we wanted to do it in a small budget. But, by the time the product it is ready, Maro Charitra turned out to be a big budget movie. We have taken 32 years old movie and remade it to suit the taste of contemporary and modern audiences. Music of the film is success. Ravi Yadav’s cinematography is also going to be a visually pleasing. I am sure that Maro Charitra will be emotionally pleasing as well."
