ANR said, "SriRamadasu film is shaping up with great artistic values. This unfortunate event occurred when we were returning from Mangalore schedule. Sunil Varma had over experience of 25 years in film industry in direction department. He also directed a couple of films. He was closing associated with the director K Raghavendra Rao. Ramaraju, a relative of producer Konda Krishnam Raju took voluntary retirement in Syndicate Bank to work for Sri Ramadasu film. It is an indigestible fact that these two good men are not with us anymore. I express my condolences to the family members of Sunil Varma and Rama Raju."

Some people get down early. I got introduced to Ramaraju very recently. He was very endearing person. May their souls rest in peace."
