‘Varun Tej has made Mega family proud’ – Chiranjeevi
Speaking on the occasion, Megastar Chiranjeevi said, “Congratulations to the entire team on the success of ‘Tholi Prema’. I have watched the film a bit late. I was very impressed. I was so curious to watch the film as it has my brother Pawan Kalyan’s film title. ‘Tholi Prema’ is a contemporary love story. It’s like a big challenging for the director Venky to make such kind of film. Director’s wonderful thoughts are the main reason for the freshness in the film. He has presented the film in a neo angle. Our Telugu film industry needs directors like Venky Atluri. If we infuse such inputs, our neighbouring states will talk about our film industry. The film has made Telugu film industry proud. All artists in the film are experienced artists and looked fresh in the film.”
Explaining Varun Tej’s performance, Chiranjeevi said, “Varun Tej has given matured performance. He looked like a young boy. Varun and Raashi Khanna have done love scenes and delicate emotional conflicts with great involvement. Varun’s performance has made all our family members feel proud. I was wondering about Varun dances considering his height. But, his every dance move is wonderful. ‘Tholi Prema’ is a wonderful commercial entertainer which will impress all sects of audience.”
Showering praises on technical team and others artists, Chiru said, “Thaman’s music is stupendous. Choreographer Sathish and Sekhar Master has composed dance moves according to the situation of the story. Cameraman George’s work is splendid. He has presented Varun more beautifully and Raashi Khanna as a glamour girl. Producer BVSN Prasad is Varu’s favourite producer. He has not compromised in terms of budget. It’s a great thing to complete a film in 60 days. The success of this film is a proud moment for Nagababu. Varun has given a wonderful gift to his father.”
On this occasion, director Venky Atluri said, “When I was a kid, I have seen Chiranjeevi garu during the time of ‘Stuvartapuram Police Station’. Now, after these many years, I got the opportunity to share the stage with him. It’s a great and unforgettable feeling for me. I am feeling happy and proud that Chiranjeevi garu has watched ‘Tholi Prema’ and impressed and invited all of us to share his views.”
Producer BVSN Prasad said, “33 years ago, when I went to madras to become producer, I got the chance to meet Chiranjeevi garu. I was introduced to him as his fan by Pasupuleti Ramarao garu. After these many years, I am getting opportunity to work with Ram Chanran, Pawan Kalyan, Bunny and now with Varun.”
“I desired to become an actor inspired by Chiranjeevi garu. I am very happy that Dad (Chiranjeevi garu) is here with us and praising ‘Tholi Prema’,” said Varun Tej.
