Audio of Ravi Teja’s latest film Vikramarkudu was launched at a function arranged in a set erected near Hitec city on the night of 31st May. K Raghavendra Rao launched the audio and gave the first unit to YVS Chowdary. Ramesh Prasad, B Gopal and Gunnam Gangaraju were also invited as guests.
Guest YVS Chowdary said, “Vikramarkudu is a wonderful title. Rajamouli has been delivering successive super hits which is very difficult. RR and songs play very important role for the success of any film and Keeravani is my all time favorite music director. Vijayendra Prasad comes up with novel scripts. Ravi Teja was my roommate in Chennai during our struggling days and he is my best friend. I met heroine Anushka over flight and asked her if she was interested in films, but by then she was signed for Nagarjuna’s ‘Super’ film. I wish that Vikramarkudu – made with such a good team – would become an extraordinary hit.”
Ramesh Prasad said that committed and dedicated young directors are doing wonders in film industry.
Heroine Anushka said, “I learnt a lot working with Vikramarkudu team. I performed better in this film. It was fun working with Ravi Teja. MM Keeravani has given amazing music for this film. Rama Rajamouli’s costumes are creative. Vikramarkudu is the product of a passionate team.”
Producer ML Kumar Chowdary said, “Keeravani worked really hard for this film. He understood our time-constraint and composed three songs by coming to Badami (450 km away from Hyderabad) where climax of the film was shot. Ravi Teja did two roles. His portrayal of Athili Sathi Babu provides entertainment and his character of Vikram Rathod is action-oriented. Vikramarkudu will be the fifth consecutive hit for the director Rajamouli.”
Music director MM Keeravani said, “This is my fifth film with Rajamouli. There are comments on out work saying that I have not given good music like Student No.1 for rest of Rajamouli’s films. That’s because K Raghavendra Rao was involved in the making of Student No.1. I have given great re-recording for all Rajamouli, because he is so good at extracting good RR. For all Rajamouli’s films, certain departments have dominated. For Student No.1, it was music. For Simhadri, it was story. For Sye, it was the director. Chatrapati is the only film where all of us equally contributed to the film. I have seen Vikramarkudu film and this film is completely dominated by the hero Ravi Teja. Now I am putting all efforts to make sure that my re-recording dominates Ravi Teja. K Raghavendra Rao who happened to be there in studio during songs recording has come up with valuable suggestions for a song.”
The unit members who graced the occasion include ML Kumar Chowdary, Ravi Teja, Rajamouli, Anushka, Keeravani, Vijayendra Prasad, Brahmanandam, lyricist Danayya, Rajiv Kanakala, Ajay, Rama Rajamouli, Ravindra, Sarvesh Murari, Ram Lakshman, M Ratnam, Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao and Suresh Bujji.
