The music of Surya's latest bilingual film – Surya s/o Krishnan – was released tonight at Prasad Multiplex (Screen 1), Hyderabad. The film is made on the prestigious Aascar Films Private Limited banner. The film director Gowtham Vasudeva Menon, music director Harris Jayraj, hero Surya and heroine Sameera Reddy arrived at the venue. The dignitaries who graced the occasion were Victory Venkatesh, Ramcharan Tej, Priyamani, Maheshwari (with hubby) and others. CDs and Cassettes are being marked by the Sony BMG. Gowtham himself anchored the event.
Victory Venkatesh unveiled the music album and presented the first copy to Ramcharan Tej. Earlier, Priyamani unveiled the first song of the album and presented it to Harris Jayraj. Later, she played it on the DVD for the gathering. All through the function, the Harris Jayraj teammates – Steve (guitarist), Karthik, Devan and Naresh Iyer – kept the atmosphere rocking with their live orchestra with songs of Harris Jayraj (from Venky and Surya films). Two full-length songs and some scenes were screened to the media.
Surya said: "Whenever I come to Hyderabad, it is a special feeling to me. I love Telugu people. They still remember my film Ghajni. From airport to here, I found their warmth for me. I enjoyed the fish curry and dosa thanks to the hospitality of Allu Arvind sir. Venkatesh anna is always special to me. This film (Surya s/o Krishnan) is special in my career. I hope this album will repeat the magic of Hrudayam Ekkadunnadhi of Ghajini."
Gowtham Menon said: "The film is about the achievement of the youth. I am happy to make this in Tamil and Telugu. I thank each and every member of the cast and crew who worked for the film. Veturi Sundara Ramurthy garu is a legend who gave fantastic songs. Sashank's dialogues are great. I need the support of the Telugu people. I think we are small people here in Telugu industry, though we are big in Tamil. The film is set for release this Deepawali."
Harris Jayraj said: "I thank the people of Andhra Pradesh for their big support to me. I also thank the press. By God's grace, I hope I will be giving another hit album with this film."
Venkatesh said: "There can't be a better combination other than Gowtham-Surya-Harris Jayraj. I wish them all the very best. I hope this audio and film will be bigger hits on the lines of their film Ghajini. Music is fabulous."
Ramcharan Tej said: "I am happy to meet the press after a long time. I couldn't meet you due to busy shooting schedules. Sometime back, I saw a small teaser of this film. The trio (Gowtham-Surya-Harris) is a wonderful combination. This best three inspired in the past. Gowtham is capable to inspiring each and everybody. Sameera Reddy is a pretty doll. When Gowtham wanted to do this film in Telugu with me, I rejected it doubting that I might not do justice to the great script. But, I am going to do another film with him next year. I hope I too will be as lucky as Surya. In fact, Harris Jayraj is the real crowdpuller for the films for which he scored music. And he is going to score music for my film with Bhaskar. My best wishes to all."
Priyamani said: "I am happy to be part of this function. I am a big fan of Harris Jayraj and Surya. I heard the songs in Tamil and they are runaway hits there. I hope this album and film will also be hits in Telugu."
Sameera Reddy said: "I am a big fan of Khaka Khaka. I always wanted to work with Gowtham Menon if ever I could get a chance in Tamil. With this project, my dream came true. Surya is extremely handsome. I hope this film is a great start for me."
