Chandra Babu Naidu watched the special preview of Rajnikant’s 15 June release ‘Sivaji’ at Prasad Labs preview theater today morning. Chandra Babu Naidu and Rajnikant spoke to the media after the preview is over. Here are the excepts -

Sivaji is about black money - Sivaji
Chandra Babu Naidu said, “Sivaji is going to create history in Inida. India has lot of talent and resources. But we are suffering with corruption and black money. Due to this black money, rich are becoming ultra rich and poor are becoming paupers. Sivaji film will be an eye-opener. Sivaji film combined entertainment with nice social message. Rajnikant is not only famous in India, he is an icon in Japan. I would say without any hesitation that Rajni is the most stylist actor in the entire India. I am a fan and friend of Rajni. Shankar who has a thing for social message oriented films has done superb work as director.”

NTR wanted me to use the film media to full extent - Rajnikant
Hero Rajnikant said, “Chandra Babu Naidu is one of my best friends. I promised him to show Chandramukhi on the release date and I could not honor it. I met Chandra Babu Naidu during the shoot of Sivaji. This time I stuck to my promise and shown him a day ahead of the release. Tamilnadu CM Karunanidhi watched Sivaji 3 days back and was very much impressed with it. Jayalalitha will be watching the film today evening at 6 pm in Chennai. I am planning to have screenings to YSR and Chidambaram as well. NTR told me long back that film media is the most powerful media. He wanted me to use this media to full extent to convey good messages to the masses. I am following him. The entire credit of the success of this film goes to Shankar. He has a zeal to make films that educate masses by mixing entertainment. We had been contemplating on working together for the past 10 years and it worked with Sivaji film. There will be entertainment and social message in this film.”

When asked about the craze Sivaji film has got this time, Rajnikant humbly attributed it to the almighty.
