Speaking on the occasion, the ace producer said, "For the first time in 20 years, I have organized an appreciation meet even though I have no connection with a film. I am thoroughly impressed with 'Naandhi'. Director Vijay Kanakamedala has worked under my banner in the past. He has told a gripping story. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar is superb as a lawyer. There is a new heart-touching scene every 10 minutes in the movie. We all know what a good artist Allari Naresh is. He proved it in 'Maharshi' as well."
Vijay Kanakamedala said, "It's the lifetime ambition for any director to make a film in the banner of Raju garu. He used to tell me to make a good film and not just a commercial entertainer."
Allari Naresh said, "This film has taught me that an actor has to give his all if he trusts the director and his story. I, Satish Vegesna and others believed in the story of 'Naandhi'. Dil Raju garu has always encouraged new talents. I am happy that he has organized this appreciation meet."
Producer Satish Vegesna said, "I entered the film industry with the inspiration of Ramanaidu garu, Allu Aravind garu and Dil Raju garu. As the producer of 'Naandhi', I got inspired by Dil Raju garu to involve myself in all aspects of filmmaking. He is my role model."
