The song trailer launch of RGV's upcoming film,'26/11 India Pai Dhadi' has been done at Taj Vivantha in Hyderabad.
Famous film personalities like Ram Gopal Varma, JD Chakravarthi, Kona Venkat, C.Kalyan, RP Patnaik, JK Bharavi, Bhaskara Bhatla, Brahmaji, Bharathi Babu, Srikanth Shankar, the presenter of the movie in Telugu, Mr. Kantha Rao etc attended the event.
Bhaskara Bhatla says, "Man have finished cutting trees and is bored of it. So he started killing other men. As a writer, I used to think if we cannot have responsibility towards society. My yearning to write something for a cause has come true with this movie that too after 12 years of my career as a writer.I thank Ramu sir for giving me a chance to write a song 'Netthuti Ruchi Marigindha' in this movie. I am a big fan of RGV and I have fear, respect and love all towards him. But he liked the first line itself which I have written and have appreciated me over the phone. It is unfortunate that the events like 26/11 are continuing to happen. I hope this movie will change some of the terrorists".
Kona Venkat says, "One evening or one day is not enough to talk about RGV. Any one will make a movie with a good story, but he doesn't need it. He just needs a reason. And I think that if the reason is strong, the movie can become a block buster. All say that he has no emotions and the answer for all of them will be said with this movie. This is not a thriller movie but is a sentimental and emotional movie. I have never seen a highly emotional movie like this recently. He is a master in carrying emotions and he can imagine the emotions of anybody whether it is Dawood, Laden or Kasab. I strongly believe that this movie is the best work by him. It makes you feel as if you are at the site of the attacks. Some of the scenes I have seen continued to haunt me for days".
Famous writer JK Bharawi says that he has been a big fan of RGV right from the movie 'Shiva'. " I think a film which changes the direction of the world comes from RGV. He has proved that he is not less to international directors with Shiva itself. This movie is made in such a way that we feel of we are there".
The writer and singer of 'Moula Moula' song in the movie, Bharathi Babu and Srikanth Shankar have also thanked RGV for being a part in a song useful to the society.
Actor Brahmaji said that he has felt some sadness, anger and helplessness at seeing the movie and praised RGV at his guts at showing the first 7 mins of the movie.
Famous music director RP Patnaik also said he was excited at seeing the first 7 mins of the movie and said he hopes someone would change after seeing the movie.
C.Kalyan said that it has been unfortunate that a movie intended to show the grief of people at an unfortunate event and some people's cruelty at India, getting a 'A' certificate and said that young people should be allowed to see the movie as it raises the patriotic feelings in them.
RGV says, "From the start of my career, I have done many movies with conditions, with passion and some with arrogance. But for the first time, I have done a movie out of fear. Fear that I may not carry the emotions of the people and police officers with whom I have shared private conversations. Fear that if I can represent those emotions without changing spirit. The incidents that started on 26th November, 2008 have uniqueness that I cannot believe that some people coming on a boat causing such painful events and terrified the whole India. What happened from 9.30 to 1.00 that day is shown and 80% of the film will be there. I have imagined the feelings of some people in Taj. I have imagined what would have happened at the time of hijack of the boat and the emotions there. I came to hear that Police have thrown stones at the attackers in Leopold cafe. I could not imagine that sight of police throwing stones. They have thrown stones to check if there are really terrorists as we check for animals".
"It is not compulsory that you have to be a leader or social worker to work for a cause. A journalist can write what has occurred there. But it is a film maker who can represent it in an emotional perspective. As a living talent as a director I can communicate the emotion. I have changed a lot whether it is good or bad. Some extreme aspects have influenced me a lot. My emotions became more sensitive. This is a movie not intended at any religion or any country".
"Taking the recent Dilsukhnagar incident, as common people, we blame police for their inefficiency even after getting information about it before. But they get so many such complaints every day and we should understand them. Even America could not prevent 9/11".
"Previously, I had told that I will not make a movie on 26/11. But I have got this idea after the investigation was completed; judgement was given and after reading some books and watching documentaries on it. I started working on it 1 1-2 years back".
