meet of Nagarjunas devotional epic Sri Ramadasu
was held at the Garbha Gudi set erected in Annapurna
studios on the morning of 29th December. This meet
was attended by Nagarjuna, K Raghavendra Rao, Archana,

release on Sankranthi - Konda Krishnam Raju
Producer Konda Krishnam Raju said, The music
sittings of the film were held at Bhadrachalam in
the month of March 2005. We started the recording
of 1st song in Ramalayam temple in Hyderabad. Currently
we are shooting the last day work in this Garbhagudi
set. We are planning to release the audio of Sri Ramadasu
for Sankranthi 2006 in Bhadrachalam. We would release
the film in the month of February 2006.
Keerthanas in Sri Ramadasu - JK Bharavi
Writer JK Bharavi said, I am feeling lucky to
work for this project. We saw the rushes of the film
except for climax yesterday and the entire film mesmerized
me. Nagarjuna gave matured performance than Annamayya
in Sri Ramadasu. Sneha is perfect replacement to Soundarya
in Telugu film industry. MM Keeravani recreated 20
keerthanas of Sri Ramadasu in this film. Veturi penned
title song. Chandrabose came up with experimental
lyrics for a duet in this film. MM Keervani gave major
contribution for Sri Ramadasu.
Keeravani is the hero of Sri Ramadasu - Nagarjuna
Hero Nagarjuna said, History says that all the
films that were made on Lord Rama faced rough whether
while making the film. Our film is no exception. We
had initial problems and in a tragedy we lost two
of the unit members. When I made Annamayya I was in
the jolly mood of Ninne Pelladatha which I completed
just then. But Sri Ramadasu is different. I listened
to the story and okayed the film when I was doing
Mass film. Hence I am mentally prepared for Sri Ramadasu.
Shooting of the entire film is over except for climax.
It feels good to act in such a devotional epic. When
we did Annamayya nobody were sure of the success of
the film. But for Sri Ramadasu there has been lots
of expectations and craze. I saw the rushes of the
film except for the climax. And immediately I called
up K Raghavendra Rao and thanked him for giving me
such a good film. There are certain emotional and
moving scenes between me and my father ANR in this
film. MM Keeravani is going to be hero of Sri Ramadasu.
Though Annamayyas music got national award,
it was ignored at Nandi level. Hopefully Sri Ramadasus
music should get both National and Nandi awards. Sneha
suited the role very well. I am fascinated by Paluke
Bangaramayena song from Andala Ramudu. It is nice
to see myself doing that song in Sri Ramadasu now.
to play Seetas role - Archana
Actress Archana said, I had given lots of dance
ballets on Sri Ramadasu in UK and Dubai. I have very
good idea about the story of Ramadasu. When K Raghavendra
Rao announced this project, somewhere in my heart
I knew that I might play a role. I am very fortunate
to get the role of Seeta in this film.
