Chiranjeevi will become the chief minister - Nutan Prasad
Speaking on the occasion Nutan Prasad said, “I came to Shilpa Kala Vedika for the first time. I feel very happy to attend the birthday celebrations of Chiranjeevi. It is a memorable day to receive Allu Ramalingaiah’s memorial award on Chiranjeevi’s birthday. Me and Chiranjeevi stayed in the same hotel for 40 days for the shooting of a film. He told me that he would make the people spellbound with his dances. And he proved himself as one of the greatest dancers in film industry. Both of us received Nandi awards in two consecutive years. When I was working for Chiranjeevi’s Master film, Amitab Bachchan and Govinda used to work in the same studios. Amitab used to meet Chiranjeevi daily. Govindra used to do ‘padabhivandanam’ to Chianjeevi. If Chiranjeevi comes to politics, he will definitely be the chief minister. This is the function done for the future CM of Andhra Pradesh. Ram Charan Teja is going to create history like Chiranjeevi in the future.”
Pawan Kalyan said, “I always watch out for our brother Chiranjeevi’s birthday. I don’t care about my birthday. He is not just a great actor, but a great human being with selfless social service. He is currently in abroad. I would like to wish him a very happy birthday in front of all his fans.”
Here is the message from Chiranjeevi, “I would like to thank everybody who wished me a happy birthday. I could not able to meet you personally today. It gives me a great satisfaction because of your social service though blood and eye donation. I am sure that you would continue to make me happy by indulging in more selfless social service.”
Chiru Mega Youth Force from Muscat donated two lakhs though Pawan Kalyan to the flood victims on this eve.
Pawan Kalyan also released the audio of Chirutha on this occasion. Aswini Dutt, Allu Arvind and Dr. K Vankateswara Rao attended this function.
