The audio of Nenu Meeku Telusa, starring Manchu Manoj, Riya Sen and Sneha Ullal, was released at an impressive function on Sunday night in Chennai. The film is bilingual in Telugu and Tamil. In Tamil, the film is titled Ennai Theriyuma. Produced by Mohan Babu's daughter Lakshmi Prasanna, it is directed by Ajay Sastry. Music is by Achhu.
One among Mohan Babu family
Veteran film personality Peethambaram, father of director P. Vasu, released the audio CD and presented it to actor Prabhu. Tamil hero Simbhu speaking on this occasion said that for the last eight months he stayed away from giving interviews and even making public appearance, but chose to attend the function, as "I grew up like one of the family members of Mohan Babu garu."
Praise for Rajni and Chennai
Mohan Babu said: "I grew up as an actor in Chennai. I am telling these words not because I wanted my son to become a big star. I came here at a very young age to become a hero. During my initial days, I slept on the pavements of Pondy Bazar. It was there I met my friend Rajnikanth. Both of us used to pathetically look around for people who could provide us meal. We both came up in life fighting all the way. I am happy that my friend reached the echelons of high success. Latha (Rajni's spouse) is like my own sister. You will find linguistic differentiation in several states, but not in Tamilnadu. I always tell about this unique feature of Tamil to people in Andhra Pradesh. I feel proud to have acted alongside India's famed actor Sivaji Ganeshan in the film Annan Oru Kovil."
Mix of delight and unhappiness
Actor and director K. Bhagyaraj said: "Somewhere I read in the newspapers that Rajni's cutout was put up in the USA. Rajni has wide fan following in Japan and his new dominion in America is a thrilling fact. It is a great honor to a Tamil artiste. But, I am sad at the news reports for the last one week that some distributors are demanding Rajni for repayment of amounts in the wake of losses incurred on Kuchelan (Kathanayakudu)."
