are the winners who gave speeches -
Sri Prasad (best Telugu music director for Varsham):
I would like to thank MS Raju for making my dream
of becoming music director true. He gave me 3 films
- Devi, Varsham and Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana - and
made good music for all those films. Right now I am
also doing MS Raju's Pournami. I also feel great because
Varsham, Shankar Dada MBBS and Arya for which I scored
music have made it big at Filmfare. I dedicate this
award to my loving parents who encouraged me to become
a music director.
Raj (Best villain in Tamil for Gilli): The best
actor for villain and character artist was established
in Filmfare awards around 3 years back. I am happy
to tell you that for the past three years I have been
winning awards at Filmfare consecutively.
(Best comedy actor in Tamil for Peralagan): Whenever
I see the figure on Filnfare award, it reminds me
of a lady on diet. I think all heroines should follow
this lady on diet to keep their figure under control.
I feel every wife should follow it. If our wives don't
follow it, we will be forced to follow the heroines.
I have got this filmfare award for for 3 times in
a row for films Minnale, Run and Peralagan.
(Best character artist in Tamil for Ayudha Ezhuthu
(Yuva in Telugu)): It was Mani Ratnam who gave me
such a raw role in Yuva film for me who had been doing
chocolate hero roles. I owe this award to Mani Ratnam.
(Best character actor in Telugu for Shankar Dada MBBS):
This is my first filmfare award. I owe this award
to Chiranjeevi as he is the one who selected me for
this role and took care of my dressing and characterization.
I had been doing soft hero roles so far and Chiranjeevi
took a brave decision of making me act in a pucca
mass role. Thanks to Annayya Chiranjeevi.
(Best film in Tamil - Autograph): This is the 4th
award for Autograph as best film for Autograph in
various film festivals. I dedicate this award to Tamil
Brothers (on behalf of MS Raju for the best film
Varsham): MS Raju's Okkadu has won 4 filmfare awards
last year. MS Raju's Varsham won 5 awards this year.
We are expecting 6 awards for MS Raju's NVNV next
yea. We are currently working for Pournami film now.
It is script which is most important thing for any
film. I hope that Filmfare award committee would consider
giving awards to writers as well, as we got no filmfare
awards so far even though we worked for 300+ films.
Vasu (Best director for Kannada film Apta Mitra):
I am glad to receive filmfare award. More so because
I won this award for Kannada film. I dedicate this
award to late great actress Soundarya.
(Best director for Telugu film Arya): I saw many people
dedicating their awards to parents. It is boring.
Is it not? But, I am still proud to dedicate this
award to my loving parents. I would like to thank
my master Ram Mohan Reddy who helped me to reach this
position. When a team wins, the cup would be received
by the captain. Likewise, I don't treat this award
as a personal award. I think that I am receiving this
best director award as a captain for the work done
by the entire team of Arya film.
(Best heroine in Telugu for Varsham): I would like
to thank MS Raju who is my Godfather, best friend
and mentor. I would like to thank each and every unit
member of varsham for this award. Hyderabad is like
my home away from home.
(Best actor for Malayalam film Kazhacha): I feel bit
sad to receive this award as this function says Filmfare
awards for South India. I am an Indian first. Why
do we differentiate between South and North? Why can't
we have these awards at India level? We all are Indians
first. I would like to request Filmfare to give away
awards at national level instead of segregating as
South and North. I played the role of a touring talkies
operator who tumbles upon a refugee kid of Gujarath
who is a victim of earthquake in Kazhacha film.
(Best actor in Tamil for Peralagan): Incidentally
today is my birthday. I would like to dedicate this
award to the team of Peralagan.
I was very confident till 10 minutes when the anchors
announced that I would be receiving award from Rekha.
Rekha was my dream girl. I grew up adoring her. I
would love to know how she maintains her body so slim
for so many years. If she could tell me that I would
become her sishya (protégé) for rest
of my life. Incidentally this is my 7th filmfare award.
When I got my 1st filmfare awards, Kamal Hassan has
already won 14 filmfare awards. At that time, I thought
that I would be great if I could get at least half
of what Kamal has got. With this award, I got half
of what Kamal Hassan got. Now my goal is to get another
7 so that I could equal him. The Nandi awards take
into consideration about artistic value of the films
and consider only straight Telugu films. But histrionics
are beyond remakes. I feel that Filmfare considers
real talent and popularity. I respect Filmfare awards.

You promised me a role against you in your films

a whistle once, I would come to Hyderabad and
act in your film (Nuvvokkasari whistle veste
nenu parigettuku vachesta).
Tell me the secret of your beauty and figure?
Sure. Would you give me a chance in your films?
