Meet of Manoj's latest film Sri was held at Film Chamber
today morning. Mohan Babu, Manoj, Dasarath and Lakshmi
Prasanna attended the press meet -
on the occasion Mohan Babu said, "Today
is 11th day of Sri. Manoj has given wonderful performance
in the film. I do not say that Sri is a sensational
hit. But it is a hit. It is drawing around 60% - 100%
collections depending on the center. I know how much
I spent on the film. I would be getting all my investment
back. Good talk is spreading all over. My ambition
of making my sons successful heroes is fulfilled.
Vishnu got settled as hit hero with Suryam. Now Manoj
got the hit hero tag with Sri film. Direction of Dasarath
is neat. I am impressed by Dasarath's work and asked
him to come up with another subject for our banner.
Though I did a role in Sri film I asked not to show
my photos in posters and trailers. I want my son Manoj
to hog all the limelight."
Lakshmi Prasanna said, "I am really proud
of my brother Manoj. He gave an unbelievable performance
in Sri. We (around 18 people) went to Prasads 2 days
back to watch Sri film. We all got excited by watching
Manoj's performance. Manoj performed like a seasoned
actor. I expected Manoj to dance well and Vishnu to
fight well. I am happy that both of them got the tag
of all-rounders with just 2 films to their credit.
I will direct one of my brothers once I complete my
course in direction."
Dasarath said, "The entire unit toured
from Vijayawada to Bobbili to meet crowds and see
their response in theaters. This film turned out to
be a hit and Manoj gave excellent performance. I am
happy to have worked with Sri Lakshmi Prasanna Pictures
Manoj thanked everybody for making Sri a hit. He never
expected such kind of tremendous openings for the
