am like Hanuman to the family of Nandamuris' - Paruchuri
Paruchuri Gopala Krishna came to this function because
of the great association he shares with the family
of Nandamuri though he did not write dialogues for
Vijayendra Varma. He said that he is remembering NTR
classics like Vummadi Kutumbam and Kalasivunte Kaladu
Sukham after seeing all the Nandamuri heroes sitting
on one dais. He compared himself to Nandamuri family
as Hanuman to Lord Sreerama.
among my albums - Koti
Music director Koti said that he composed for several
hits of Bala Krishna. And Vijayendra Varma's music
would surpass all the earlier films would stand as
best in their combination. He rendered a couple of
lyrics of mass song 'Maisamma Maisamma' much to the
delight of the fans.
Krishna thanked everybody for making function a big
success and shared his happiness over sharing dais
with his younger brother heroes. Taraka Ratna said
that Vijayendra Varma would break all the existing
gesture by Kalyan Ram
Kalyan Ram Nandamuri gave a humble gesture by saying
that all the fans would be waiting for the speeches
of Hari Krishna (father) and Bala Krishna (babai).
Hence it does not sound good if he kept on making
fans wait for long by giving lengthy speeches. Kalyan
Ram wished that Vijayendra Varma would become a biggest
hit than 'Narasimha Naidu'.
response for S Gopal Reddy
S Gopal Reddy - producer of blockbusters like Mangammagari
Manavadu & Muddula Mavayya - got the ear-deafening
response from the fans when he was invited to speak
on this occasion. In an emotional speech, Gopal Reddy
said that his association with Nandamuri Bala Krishna
goes back to 21 years back. He motioned to the fans
that he is one among them. He remembered the dialogue
he told on 31st January 2001 when he said 'Chanipoyenthavaraku
meethone vuntanuu'. This particular dialogue was misread
and spread with malicious intentions by certain people
with vested interests which create a rift between
S Gopal Reddy and Bala Krishna. S Gopal Reddy expressed
his happiness over getting back to Bala Krishna as
his close aid. S Gopal Reddy said that he would produce
a film soon with Bala Krishna as hero and announce
it in the next month.
stranded for an hour
NTR said that he was stranded amidst Nandamuri fans
for an hour between 7 pm and 8 pm. This incident reminded
him of the struggle he underwent while procuring a
ticket for Bala Krishna's Rowdy Inspector on its release
day. NTR said that RAW officer get-up of Bala Krishna
in Vijayendra Varma reminded him of Vijaya Ramaraju
character in Rowdy Inspector film. NTR remembered
another emotional incident with Bala Krishna at Shilpa
Kala Vedika where he shared the dais with Bala Krishna
for the first time at Cine Goers Awards function.
NTR professed that Vijayendra Varma would top the
list of Bala Krishna's blockbusters like Muddula Mavayya,
Anasuyammagari Alludu, Mangammagari Manavadu, Rowdy
Inspector, Lorry Driver, Samarasimha Reddy and Narasimha
Naidu. NTR concluded his speech with the popular dialogue
of Bala Krishna from Samarasimha Reddy film - Kattulatho
kaadura, kantichooputho champuta'.
Nice to be honored by sons' presence - Hari Krishna
Hari Krishna explained why music plays important role
in film's success and how important is the producer
for any film. Hari Krishna said that he is peddananna
for Taraka Ratna, nanna for Kalyan Ram and NTR and
babai for Chaitanya Krishna. He feels honored to share
the dais with his sons. He said that heroine Ankita
has the unique distinction of acting with three Nandamuri
heroes - Hari Krishna, Bala Krishna and NTR.
do I payback to my fans - Bala Krishna
Bala Krishna pampered his fans with an adulating eulogy
by saying 'emi ichi teerchukogalanu mee runam' (How
do I payback to my fans). He thanked his fans for
being with him throughout his thick and thin days.
Bala Krishna also became emotional while mentioning
the sacrifices of his fans from Madanapally (Reddappa
and Vijaya Bhaskar) and gave monitory help to their
families. He also appreciated the suicide attempt
by Pavan - a die-hard fan of Nandamuri. Bala Krishna
said that he is trying to forget whatever has happen
and live through the future by doing good and meaningful
character in his future films. He hoped that only
time would heal the setbacks he had.
Varma would become legendry epic - Bala Krishna
Bala Krishna declared that Vijayendra Varma film would
become a legendry epic in the annals of Telugu cinema.
Vijayendra Varma is a unique film that was never made
in the past and that would never be made in the future.
He also praised his legendry father NTR as the never
ending story in the history of Telugu cinema and Andhra
Swamy is the best judge - Bala Krishna
Bala Krishna said that the actors do generally relay
on the monitors to see how their shots have come.
But Bala Krishna would look at the cinematographer
VSR Swamy after finishing the shot and VSR Swamy would
give the right and honest response about how the shot
has come. Bala Krishna said that VSR Swamy has tremendous
judgment and is a true technician to the core.
Krishnam Raju is like a family member - Bala Krishna
Bala Krishna said that Konda Krishnam Raju is a close
friend of him for a long time. Krishnam Raju does
not need to make films to make money. He came with
an intention to make films only with Bala Krishna.
Krishnam Raju has a big heart and patiently worked
over all the hurdles while making Vijayendra Varma.
Bala Krishna reserved the best compliment to him by
mentioning that Konda Krishnam Raju is like a family
Krishna shows concern for fans
While concluding the speech, Bala Krishna jocularly
mentioned that all his fans have the same kind of
avesam he has. And cautioned them to reach home by
and Venu Madhav anchored the event. Supreme music
has bought the audio rights for this film. Three songs
were played for the fans. All three songs are tremendous.
The patriotic song is very powerful. Maisamma song
has all fans on their feet.
