The 100 days function of Lovely was held yesterday in Hyderabad. The function was attended by Dasari, K Raghavendra Rao, Puri Jagannadh, VV Vinayak, BVS Ravi, Jayanth Paranje, SV Krishna Reddy and others.
Nagarjuna said, 'At a time when it is very difficult for a film to complete 12 days, Lovely has crossed 100 days in 12 centres. I have worked with the likes of Dasari, KRR, PJ. I would like to work under Jaya's direction if she comes out with a story for me.'
SV Krishna Reddy said: "BA Raju and B Jaya get along with everyone in the industry like friends. They succeed in whatever they take up. Aadi's first film (Prema Kavali) and now Lovely were both hits. He is lucky."
Paruchuri Gopalakrishna said: "B Jaya has many beautiful stories, which she has registered with our association. I am sure that Nagarjuna will like some of them. Jaya is making small movies and thus growing slowly. Whenever a small film succeeds, it is Dasari who is the happiest. Jaya could make the film with a modern taking. Shyam, the dialogue writer, has a good future."
Puri said: It is because of the affection that the biggies have for Raju garu and Jaya that they have made it to the event. I wish that Aadi will score more hits in the future.
VV Vinayak said: Celebrating 100 days function has become a rarity nowadays. I congratulate Raju garu and Jaya for making a film like this at this juncture. I wish that they will make more films of this kind in the future also."
'Dancing Star' Sunil said: Aadi has got a loveable face. He can act in romances as well as action-oriented roles. I acted in Jaya garu's Premalo Pavani Kalyan, the comedy scenes of which are repeatedly telecast on television even now. I would like to act under her direction again."
K Atchi Reddy said: After hearing the story, we were confident about success. Venkat garu suggested Aadi's name and reposed faith in Jaya. She has done a fantastic job. Despite IPL, exams and competition from big films, Lovely has been a big hit.
Veerabhadram said: I am happy that Prema Kavali, Poola Rangadu, and Lovely have been all hits in a row. Raju garu should make more and more films like this.
Jayanth C Paranje said that he was unhappy that he could not watch the film. "Whoever has watched the film told me that the film is extra-ordinary."
The film's hero, Aadi, said: When Jaya garu narrated to me the story, I was confident that it will become a big hit. I thank Anoop for the good music, and Shyam for the good lines. I am happy that my second film has been a hundred days movie.
BA Raju thanked the biggies who made it to the event. Jaya said that Anoop, cameraman Arun, art director Murali Kondeti and others worked like a family, and gave a good output.
