Smita should be appreciated for her career move - Mohan Babu
Speaking on the occasion Mohan Babu said that he was impressed with Smita's performance at a MAA's function and wanted to cast her in a special role for his film. But he did not get any affirmation from Smita after he sent the offer. Mohan Babu urged that respected and reputed families should encourage their daughters in films and stage shows. Mohan Babu appreciated Smita's parents for supporting her and blessed Smita that she would have a great future ahead.

I owe an apology to Smita - Nagarjuna
Nagarjuna said that he came to know about Smita when his brother Venkat recommended her for a song in Chandralekha film. But the music director Sandeep Chowta neglected taking Smita because he felt that she was pushed in to the crew through the relatives of filmmakers. Later on Smita entered the pop arena and made a mark for herself. Nagarjuna said that he owe an apology to Smita for not making her sing in Chandralekha film. He wished that Smita's recording company POWER music would make a powerful presence in the days to come.

Actor Sumanth said that he knew Smita for a long time. Sumanth praised Smita for spreading the pop culture and opined that Smita always would have the 1st mover advantage in this field.

Smita has no jealousy - MM Keeravani
MM Keeravani explained that the meaning of 'Smita' is smile (Chirunavvu). He said that it's natural for any music director or singer to have pang of jealousy on others. But Smita is an exception. A pop singer should shed all the inhibition. Singing on the stage while performing is a whole new art all together and it is very difficult compared to playback singing where singers are confined to the scenes behind. Keeravani opined that the pure and clean heart of Smita gives her all the success she truly deserves.

Producer Gangaraju Gunnam felt that Smita made it to this level purely based on her talent and the relentless support by the parents.

We vied for attention of Smita - SS Rajamouli
SS Rajamouli recollected his experience around five years back when he was working as an assistant to Gangaraju Gunnam. When Smita dropped in to see Gangaraju, it was Rajamouli and Chandu (Chandra Sekhar Eleti - Aithe director) who fought with each other about who would drop Smita back at her place. Rajamouli noticed the popularity of Smita when everybody was asking Smita to sing 'Masaka masaka' song even in the TV program that is meant to promote Sye film, in which Smita sung a couple of songs.

Concluding the function a visibly elated Smita thanked each and every celebrity who graced this occasion and opined that Nagarjuna has a lucky hand.
