on this occasion, Paruchuri Gopala Krishna said that Mohan
Babu came to his home in 1991 on one midnight. Mohan Babu
told Gopala Krishna that he then was started believing that
he has become a regular commercial hero with the hit of
'Assembly Rowdy' film. Paruchuri Gopala Krishna said that
it took 400 odd films to believe in himself that he was
a hero material. But Vishnu has got to the same position
with the first film itself.
said that Mohan Babu is in the league of 'vishistha natulu'
category that boasts of performers like SV Ranga Rao, CS
Anjaneyulu, Allu Ramalingaiah, Savitri and Suryakantham.
Dasari also said that Mohan Babu is only next to legend
NTR in dialogue delivery department. Dasari also complimented
that Mohan Babu is next to NTR and ANR when it comes to
discipline. Dasari cautioned Vishnu that he should give
the due respect to the directors and producers. He said
that hero is never greater than the producer and the director.
Babu thanked K Raghavendra Rao for directing Alludugaru
film in 31st and for giving me memorable hits. He mentioned
that all four films (Assembly Rowdy, Brahma, Collector Garu
& Adavilo Anna) directed by B Gopal for Mohan Babu were
big hits. He thanked Ravi Raja Pinisetty for giving him
an industry record hit in terms of 'Pedda Rayudu'. He also
remarked that though A Kodandarami Reddy directed few films
for never, non even a single film has become a hit.
Babu justified appointing malayali director Shazi Kailas
as the director of 'Vishnu' by saying that if Vishnu had
to work with Telugu directors in the first project, they
would not be strict with Vishnu.
director Ismail Durbar said that he was not comfortable
working in South Indian films. However his perception changed
after working for the film 'Vishnu'.
