The pre-release event of ‘Awe’ was a star studded affair held on Wednesday evening i.e. on January 31 in Hyderabad. The event saw attendance of the film’s team, which include Nani, Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menon, Regina Cassandra and Eesha Rebba, along with a bunch of celebrities like SS Rajamouli and Anushka Shetty.
Speaking on the occasion, SS Rajamouli said, “After watching the trailer, it has piqued the curiosity in me to watch the film. I got the confidence that it will definitely become a super hit. Nani is scoring hit by hit and made everyone believe that Nani’s film means it’s definitely a hit film. I wished him to reach next level. Beauty, attraction and boldness in Regina’s look is very impressive. I doubt whether she has dedicated herself to the role. Each and every actor’s look is very impressive and intriguing. I wish the film will stand out as a trend setter.”
Aunshka Shetty said, “All 11 characters in the film have created curiosity. I wish ‘Awe’ will impress everyone.”
Addressing the gathering, Nani said, “It’s a crazy film. ‘Awe’ will satisfy madness in all of us. As I tuned into producer, my respect on all producers has been increased. Hats-off to all producers. When Prashanth narrated me the script, I felt it’s very fresh. I felt the story needs a perfect producer to handle. I asked him not to hurry, I will show you a good producer. A couple of names struck in my mind, but I didn’t dare to approach them. Later I listened to the script once again when I met him while he was giving his voice over to ‘Ninnu Kori’ film. Then I decided to produce the film. I have made all my earnings through cinema and therefore I am ready to put all my earnings on cinema. I felt that if I don’t encourage such neo script, our Telugu people may miss such films in future and that’s why I turned into producer. Actually, Prashanth named ‘Awe’ as working titled title. As this is his maiden project, I suggested him to fix ‘Awe’ as the main title. Now, coming to the cast of the film. I am very happy that Nithya has become part of my production. Her role will be surprising. As of now we can’t reveal her role. Priyadarshi has unique style. I felt he is perfectly apt to chef role. He perfectly dwelled into his character. Regina, who is busy with both Tamil and Telugu projects, has changed her hairstyle only for this film. Initially, I felt that she will not accept the role. But, once she sent her photos with the looks, I was shocked. Eesha has played a beautiful role. Ravi Anna (Raviteja) was very much impressed by the script and accepted to render his voice after listening to the script. Prashanth has decided Kajal’s name while penning the script itself. She too was very impressed and accepted to act in this and given wonderful performance. Avasarala Srinivas is perfectly apt to his role. My favourite co-star Murali Sharma played a wonderful role. By seeing Prashanth’s taking, no one can believe that this is his first film. I am feeling proud that I am introducing a talented director to the film industry. Karthik will dominate everyone with each and every frame. I am thankful to editor Gautham and each and everyone in the team who supported me.”
Srinivas Avasarala, Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menon, Regina Cassandra and Priyadarshi and all others who attended the function too spoke and wished for the success of the film.
