'Balakrishna's thumb impression will forever be there'

Tuesday, January 31, 2017 • Telugu Comments

T Subbarami Reddy, the noted industrialist, politician, producer and philanthropist, has felicitated 'Shatachitra Yodha' Nandamuri Balakrishna, director Krish and the entire team of 'Gautamiputra Satakarni' on the massive success of the historical.

Heaping the praises on Balakrishna and director Krish for believing in the story of the unsung Telugu warrior emperor, TSR compared the film with the legendary NTR’s epic 'Dana Veera Soora Karna'.

"This is a landmark in Telugu film history.  Balakrishna is a dedicated artist. Krish introduced us to the greatest Telugu king about whom very few people know.  Completing such a huge film in 79 days is a great achievement. Congratulations to this whole team for being the pride of Telugu cinema and winning laurels from all over the world.  This film will be a chapter for coming generations to learn about Telugu honor and identity," said TSR.

Krish said, "My phone has been flooded with thousands of messages. People are appreciating me not for the historical blockbuster success but for narrating the story of Telugu honour.  We believed that 'Gautamiputra Satakarni' is going to create history and our aim was to use this opportunity in leaving a firm Balakrishna 'velu mudra' on Telugu cinema canvass because no two fingers prints match. He drew from the experience of all of his previous 99 movies and unleashed his Nata Vishwaroopam as Satakarni."

Balayya said, "I wonder I had done something worthwhile in my previous life because I am blessed with two big boons. One, born as son to legendary NTR and second, I became an artist. This film happened by God’s grace and the divine blessing of my father NTR. Actually, my father had an unfulfilled wish to play this powerful character. As he could not achieve it, he made me to fulfill the same wish."

Tamannah said, "Unfortunately, people have a misapprehension about Telugu cinema as commercial-centric and routine. Krish has proved them wrong by completing a massive project like this in just 79 days. I feel proud to be sharing the dais with this team. I am looking forward to work with my favorite director Krish and hero Balakrishna garu very soon. Thanks T Subbarami Reddy garu for treating me as family member and inviting me for this event."

Jayasudha said, "Due to time constraints, I did not watch 'Gautamiputra Satakarni' but I have been hearing positive news. I will surely watch it very soon. My friends from USA and all Dubai have messaged saying Satakarni as one of the greatest films ever made in Telugu. Since the time he made 'Gamyam', director Krish became my favorite and so is Balakrishna garu who is a director’s artist. I congratulate the entire team."

The star studded event is finished with cake cutting by Balakrishna’s daughters Brahmini, Tejaswini and Krish’s wife Dr. Ramya, followed by Balakrishna rendering the most powerful 'Desam meesam thippudam' dialogue.
