Vijaya Bhaskar
Vijaya Bhaskar said that he took almost 9 months to complete this project and its been a great pleasure to work with Venkatesh Babu. Katrina Kaif is apt for the role of princess. Katrina is magnificent, attractive and beautiful in this film. Sirivennela and Bhuvanachandra has done terrific work in penning lyrics for this movie. Trivikram penned extraordinary dialogues, as usual. Koti provided foot-tapping music. Sameer Reddy did excellent work as cinematographer. This film is a wholesome entertainer with ample commercial values.

Trivikram revealed the basic story point of Malliswarai. At one point of time, Malliswari got to choose between two things called money and peace of mind and Malliswari opts for peace of mind. Hero Venkatesh helps her in achieving it and in the process they fall in love.

Venkatesh said that the characterization of his character in Malliswari is terrific. He said that he enjoyed doing the film. He professed that Malliswari would prove a very good film for out Telugu movie industry. He said that Katrina Kaif would attract crowds to theaters with her looks. He likes working with Trivikram for his one liners and quick comedy dialogues.

Heroine Katrina Kaif said that she felt excited working for Malliswari and had a ball during the shooting days.

Kota Srinivasa Rao said that the roles he played in Suresh Productions projects clicked in a big way. And all the characters in this film are well connected to the storyline. Naresh is playing elder brother of hero. Balayya is playing grandfather of heroine and also as the zamindar.

Venky is playing the role of clerk in Andhra Bank in Vizag who has been working over there for the past 7 years and residing at MVP colony. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam is doing the role of Bank Manager. Ahuti Prasad and Rajitha provide good humor in this film.
