The success meet of Nara Rohith and Sri Vishnu starrer ‘Appatlo Okadundevadu’ was held on Thursday morning i.e. on January 5 in Hyderabad. The film was directed by Sagar K Chandra and produced by Prashanthi and Krishna Vijay under the Aryan Media banner with Nara Rohith as presenter. Sai Karthik has given musical scores.
Speaking at the success meet, Dasari Narayana Rao said, “Except 5 to 10 percent of films, I watch all films. This is also one of the processes to update ourselves. Two years back, I felt pity about Telugu cinemas. Now, Telugu cinema has good reputation. Small films are the crux of Telugu film industry. I know Nara Rohith since he was a kid. He is going ahead by choosing amazing scripts. Sri Vishnu has given excellent performance. I am very happy that ‘Appatlo Okadundevadu’ has got support from media. But, even there we find some destructive people. It’s not the correct way to make profits by blackmailing with the ratings. Telugu film industry will not tolerate any more such doings. Many people’s lives depends on ratings and therefore I request them to think once before giving their ratings. They should remember that rating will impact the film’s run in overseas. I am planning to start a team called Good Film Promotors with six members.”
On this occasion, Nara Rohith said, “Working for this film is the most memorable journey for me. Sri Vishnu is travelling with me since ‘Banam’. He trusted the script more than me. My belief came true. If the film was released on January 6, it would have only 5 days and therefore we decided to release the film before. We kept faith on the script and went ahead. We are increasing 100 more theaters worldwide. I have hits, flops and average film in 2016, but ‘Appatlo Okadundevadu’ stood as memorable film.”
Sri Vishnu said, “We started this as a small budget film. The film was released in few number of theaters. We are increasing theatres from this week.”
Speaking on the occasion, producer Vijay said, “At first we didn’t want to release the film on December 30, but finally we released it. I am very happy that theaters are increased now.”
Director Sagar Chandra said, “The success and Rohith garu are unforgettable. Sri Vishnu has presented all emotions. Working with him has reminded me of Rajendra Prasad garu.”
Rajiv Kanakala, Prashanthi, Ravi Varma, Naveen Yadav, Suresh Bobbili, Giri, Shashank Mouli, DMK and MVK Reddy and all the film unit members were present at the success meet.
