Sahasam Cheyara Dimbhaka is my motto - Puri Jagan
Responding this award Puri Jagan said, “I am very happy to have got this precious award. I have a memorable incident relating to KV Reddy. My father owns a touring talkies in our hometown. He exhibited KV Reddy’s Uma Chandi when I was 5 years old. Inspired by that film my father named my little brother as Uma Shankar Ganesh. I also love the work of KV Reddy. I take his dialogue ‘Sahasam Cheyyara Dimbhaka’ as inspiration and follow it religiously. I take risks and do adventures, but I made sure that I do it with passion. I would like to thank Pawan Kalyan who gave me direction debut chance on this occasion.".
