I became a fan of Gopichand after watching his performance in Jayam , says Venkatesh.
The actor, who presided over the 100th day celebrations of Gopichand's Ranam, said, 'he is a great actor, who deserves appreciation'.
Gopichand's Ranam completed 100 days in 24 centers.
To commemorate the success, a mega event was organized recently in which the likes of Rama Naidu and Venkatesh took part.
Speaking on the occasion, Narayana Murthy, said,'Dasari had wanted to direct his Son of India with Gopichand playing the lead role. But Gopichand had rejected because he is afraid of acting under the direction of Dasari. Gopichand has achieved considerably in his career and he should continue acting in good films.'
Thanking producer Babu Rao for giving him the opportunity, director Amma Raja Sekhar said, 'The success has made me more responsible to give quality movies'.
Speaking on the meet, D Rama Naidu said, 'I saw the film and liked the comedy and entertainment. Gopichand has become star with this film.'
Thanking everyone for making the movie a big success, Gopichand, said, 'I am a great fan of Venkatesh. I learnt a lot watching his movies. Amma Rajasekhar had narrated the script to me long before. However I was hesitant to do it then. I got confidence to do film with him after Yagnam.'
Heaping praises on Gopichand, Dasari, said, 'Gopichand has done very well and has shown lots of promise. Sure to make it big.'
