The audio CDs were released by K Raghavendra Rao and the first copy of it was received by NTR.
Addressing the gathering K Balachander said, “This is an unexpected event which I’ve not seen before. I congratulate Dasari Narayana Rao garu for directing 150 films. We follow the same path because both of us came from theater only. Dasari garu worked as a central minister but I do not know how he managed over there. When I introduced Kamal Haasan to the movie industry, Dasari asked me if he could also introduce him to Telugu film industry. There is no barrage to his image. Such is the man who can command respect anytime. He introduced many stars and also directed many stars. I wish him to do 200 films. We need not wonder if Balakrishna will create Tsunami with this film.”
NTR while speaking, “One should deserve the right to stand on this dais today. Because this function witnesses many top directors and Balakrishna garu as well. Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao gari’s blessings will always remain with us. I’m very happy to note that Darsakaratna is directing his 150th film with our Yuvaratna. Balayya garu showed the songs visually to Kalyan Ram and me. He is really awesome in Ravanabrahma getup. In another song he portrayed as Komaram Bheem. When I saw that song I felt for that moment, if a film on Komaram Bheem comes in this combination. I wish this movie will become bigger hit than ‘Simha’.”
Dr Dasari Narayana Rao said, “I thank Balachander garu for coming all the way from Chennai. My hero Paramaveera Chakra is Samarasimham. My first movie is ‘Thatha Manavadu’, but as a director I started my career with NTR garu’s ‘Oke Kutumbam’. In the history of world cinema, we will not see an actor like him. I achieved many successes with him. He used to mention in his speeches that films like ‘Sardar Paparayudu’ and ‘Bobbili Puli’ have inspired him to step into politics. Doing this film with Balayya babu is a sweet experience. As long as directed this film I got a feeling that I’m directing my elder brother (NTR). One can see the vishwaroopam of Balayya babu in this film. I saw a sincere student in him. I could find the sincerity of Rama Rao garu in him. He is the man with sincerity, determination and hard work. I will talk about the film after its release.”
Speaking further he said, “The audience wished to see him in a powerful and unique role. We found a good producer for this film. He has a good taste and did this film without wastage of money. We completed this film in about 74 days and I thank my team on this occasion. Mani Sharma’s music is also very good. Balayya Babu is very handsome in this film. They are trying to stop the release of this film during Sankranti, but no one has the power to stop the sunlight. We are dedicating this film for the brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country. On 100 days function day, we are planning to lend the financial help to those who need medical help.”
Balakrishna said, “I thank our fans who came from all corners of the country. At the time Dasari garu directed ‘Sivaranjani’ I could not play the lead role in that film due to my education. Incidentally I’m acting in his 150th film at my age of 50 years. ‘Paramaveera Chakra’ award was given to the character my father in the film ‘Bobbili Puli’ which has now become the title of my film. My father achieved a lot even after shifting from films to politics. I’m really lucky to be born as his son and acting in this film is yet another luck for me. My father’s films normally gives some message. He acted in many social oriented films. We are living happy only due to the sacrifices done by the Indian soldiers.”
Further adding he said, “With mutual understanding we were able to complete this film in less budget. I’m confident that this movie will become a grand success for the hard work we have done. If the audio becomes a hit, that indicates the movie will also become a hit. Both lyrics and tunes are good. I'm sure Ravanabrahma will be an evergreen mythological role. I thank my entire team on this auspicious occasion.”
All other guests also spoke on the dais and wished for the success of audio as well as the film.
