The unit of Premikulu felicitated comedian Brahmanandam at Ramanaidu Studios, Nanakramguda. The felicitation was to celebrate, Brahmanandam receiving an honorary doctorate from Nagarjuna University.

The function was held on the last day of shooting of Premikulu, Brahmanandam was invited onto the sets with a pandit chanting mantras and holding a purnakumbam. Producer B A Raju, director Jaya and the cast of the film gave bouquets and expressed their happiness. Then Brahmanandam received bouquets from all the crewmembers.
B A Raju later felicitated him with a shawl, while Jaya and B A Raju gifted a commemoratory memento.

A few journalists shared their happiness, then producer of the film and long time journalist B A Raju expressed his happiness and said, "I was impressed by the acting capabilities of Brahmanandam when I met him on the sets of Chinni Krishnudu during his early days. I also told him that I was going to write about him and he felt really happy."

"He is one of the most well known comedians of the Telugu film industry. I was once traveling with him when a senior manager from a private firm came up to him and shook Brahmanandam's hand and said that he was a very big fan of him. I have heard politicians say that Brahmanandam's comedy relaxes them after a hard days work. He is a comedian who is liked by politicians and commoners alike."

Finally speaking Brahmanandam said, "I was earlier felicitated on many different occasions but I never felt so happy like I am feeling right now. Sharing this with people of this unit is really great for me. And I am especially thankful that journalists who have always been behind me from the beginning are here to share it with me. They have stayed behind me and encouraged me from the day I set foot in the industry."

"B A Raju is someone I know for the past 20 years, he was the first person who wrote about me being a promising comedian. He saw me on the sets of Chinni Krishanudu, which was Jandyala's film and said to me that he was writing about me. So he and I share a special bond."

"I should also talk about Jaya who is a great director, when I saw her on the sets o Premalo Pavani Kalyan I was sure she would someday make a great director as she takes a lot of care bout each and every department of film making. But the role that I have in this film is something very great and something that I will remember for a long time."

"I would like to again thank the unit members and the journalists who are present for the felicitation."

With that Brahmanandam left for his shooting.
