all, it was a treat for all the fans that assembled there to celebrate
Chiranjeevi's 47th birthday.
the flip side:
Hundreds of fans were stranded outside Silpakala Vedika after
the function was over because of no transportation. Most of them
had to walk down from that place.
All the fans were sitting in the auditorium from 6 pm to 12:30
midnight without any food in between. The food sold in mini café
inside was too costly to afford and fans were reluctant to move
out of auditorium with the fear of losing their seat.
The duration of the function was too long (almost seven hours).
The function started with fans making lot of hungama. But the
pitch of the noise subdued by midnight due to fatigue. It would
have been more fun if the function started somewhere around 9
who complains! The day (oops night) is already made for Megastar
