Parama Veera Chakra Muhurat
Nandamuri Balakrishna’s new film titled ‘Parama Veera Chakra’ to be directed by Dr Dasari Narayana Rao and produced by C Kalyan under Teja Cinema banner had its grand film launch ceremony at Kotla Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy Indoor Stadium amidst huge fans and Tollywood’s top notches. The launching ceremony was graced by Former Chief Minister N Chandra Babu Naidu, Smt. Dasari Padma, Kalyan Ram, Taraka Ratna, Chaitanya, Nandamuri Ramakrishna, Nannapaneni Rajakumari, Boyapati Sreenu, Murali Mohan, Daggubati Venkateswara Rao, Dr KL Narayana, Doraswamy Raju, Ravikumar Chowdary, Vnu Madhav, Hema, AVS and others.
N Chandra Babu Naidu tapped the clap board for the muhurat shot and Smt Dasari Padma switched on the camera. The muhurat shot was held on Balakrishna where he says a powerful dialogue, “Avasaramaithe prajala kosam ‘Narasimha’ avuthanu, ‘Samarasimha’ avuthanu, ‘Simha’ avuthanu, ‘Bobbili Puli’ avuthanu.”
Later addressing the gathering Chandra Babu Naidu said, “The muhurat shot of this film itself has generated so much interest to watch the film instantly. Such powerful roles can be portrayed only by an actor like Balakrishna because his past films like ‘Samarasimha Reddy’, ‘Narasimha Naidu’ and ‘Simha’ have proved his talent. And not to speak of Dasari garu who directed NTR garu in films like ‘Bobbili Puli’, ‘Sardar Paparayudu’ and ‘Manushulantha Okkate’. I’m quite confident that this film would create a history in Telugu cinema and I’m also sure that Balakrishna will go only on success path from now onwards because he is becoming young day by day as he is aging. Not only in films I wish Balakrishna will climb the steps gradually even in politics.”
Dasari Narayana Rao said, “Today being Balakrishna’s 50th birthday is a very happy day. Even at the age of 60 NTR was as energetic as the youth. What can I say about this film? This film will speak its value after its release. But I would like to say a word. Films I directed with Rama Rao garu (Manushulantha Okkate, Bobbili Puli and Sardar Paparayudu) created history in Telugu cinema and I’m confident that this film will also be at par with those films.”
Balakrishna and Dasari Narayana Rao were felicitated with huge garlands.
Balakrishna while speaking, “Affection cannot be purchased with money. I’m grateful to God for blessing me with affectionate people around me. I’m a devotee of Lord Narasimha and he made my latest release ‘Simha’ a big hit. ‘Parama Veera Chakra’ will also be a prestigious film. I wish to celebrate many more birthdays and successful films’ celebrations in future also with all of you. With the blessings of my father I will try to make you all satisfy.”
About the film Balakrishna said, “It’s amazing to note that Dasari garu’s 150th film being launched on my 50th birthday. As a director he delivered many super hit films with my father. This film ‘Parama Veera Chakra’ is based on the character Major Chakradhar in ‘Bobbili Puli’. I’m very confident about the film’s success. As a head of Telugu Film Industry, Dasari garu led the star night programme successfully during the time of floods in 2009. I thank my fans, my director, my producer, my near and dear for gracing this function.” Balakrishna concluded by uttering a dialogue from NTR’s ‘Bobbili Puli’.
In this programme a cheque of Rs 1 lakh was handed over to the family of a victim Nagayya who died in a stampede during the time of election tour. Chandra Babu Naidu presented the cheque to the victim’s family. This apart an announcement was made that the NTR Charitable Trust is going to lend the financial help to Naganna’s son for his education. Nandamuri fans association from Cudappah district handed over Rs 50,000/- to Naganna’s family.
Later Balakrishna cut a large cake and celebrated his birthday amidst his fans and well-wishers.
