To act with Ramcharan soon: Allu Arjun
Allu Arjun said: “I nurse special bond with Vizag, where the Megastar got his doctorate from the AU; and the statue of my grandfather (Allu Ramalingiah) is here. All of my films were shot here. Uttarandhra brought record collections to the movie.” He termed Dil Raju as “our family member.” “Without him, I would not have reached this position as an actor. Bhaskar is a man of total positivity.” Replying to a query from the fans, he said that soon he would sure act jointly with Ramcharan.
I want to direct all in mega family: Bhaskar
Director Bhaskar said: “Megastar Chiranjeevi extremely liked the film when he watched the preview. Pawan Kalyan too felt happy after watching the film. I wish to do films with all the members of mega family.”
Parugu is bigger hit than Bommarillu: Dil Raju
Dil Raju said: “I never expected that we would celebrate 50 days here. The venue was decided recently when the hero arrived from his US trip. Of all the regions, Uttarandhra brought record business to the film. Our celebration here is to reciprocate the support of the people to the movie here. First feedback about the film came to me from here. In fact, Parugu is more successful than Bommarillu.”
Earlier, record dances, mimicry and comedy skits by the local talent and hired artisans from Hyderabad enthralled the gathering. The celebrations started around 6.30 p.m. and lasted for four hours. Allu Arjun gave away the special shields of the 50 Day to the distributors, exhibitors, cast and crew.
