The success event of 'Ante Sundaraniki' was today held at a hotel in Hyderabad. The film's core team was in attendance.
Speaking on the occasion, Nani said that the film's success is because of the entire team. He added," Whether the film is a blockbuster or not is something only time is going to tell. But I am happy that everyone who has watched it is so satisfied. This is everyone's film. This is everyone's success. I am extremely satisfied with all the positive messages that fans have been sending me since June 10. This is a top-order movie in my career. It takes a lot of guts to tell a story of this sort when there are easy ways out. I thank my producers at Mythri Movie Makers. I am sure that 'AS' is going to stand out as one of the best Telugu movies 2-3 years from now."
Nazriya Nazim said, "This is my first Telugu film. Nani is an amazing co-star. Vivek Sagar (music director), Niketh Bommi (cinematographer), the direction and costumes department, and senior actors like Naresh, Rohini, Nadhiya and Aruna Bikshu have given their best. I am missing playing the character Leela."
Director Vivek Athreya said, "Half the credit for this success goes to Nani and the other half goes to the producers. Had they not accepted this distinctive story, 'AS' wouldn't have been made at all. This film is in for the long haul. I thank Nazriya for playing Leela in such a memorable manner. Everyone, including Harshavardhan and Venkatesh Maha, has done a nice job. I thank the technical team, including editor Raviteja Girijala."
Producer Naveen Yerneni said, "This film is a classic. Good words have been pouring in from the US right from the time premieres were held. I think this is Nani's best-ever performance. Vivek Athreya is a 'pani rakshasudu', who has hardly slept for two hours a day in the last four months. As producers, I and Y Ravi Shankar, would like to collaborate with him again and again."
