Shirdi Sai Success Meet
King Nagarjuna starrer ‘Shirdi Sai’, directed by K Raghavendra Rao and produced by A Maheswara Reddy on Sri Saikrishna Entertainment Pvt Ltd., banner was released on September 6th. M M Keeravani composed the music.
A success meet of ‘Shirdi Sai’ was held to brief the details of the unit’s Vijaya Yatra which began on September 11th. Nagarjuna, K Raghavendra Rao, Parachuri Gopalakrishna and producer A Maheswara Reddy participated in this success meet.
Nagarjuna said, “Shirdi Sai is running in all theaters with hit talk from the opening day. I thank my fans and the audiences for giving us such a huge success. As part of film’s success, we did Vijaya Yatra from September 11th to 13th and toured places like Vijayawada, Guntur, Rajahmundry, Vizag, Kavali and Nellore. And the response was tremendous from kids to 90 year old adults. All of them blessed me saying that I should live long with happy family. In Kavali, when an old man pushed the crowds and came forward to say that such roles can be done by me only after NTR garu, tears filled my eyes and I consider it as my ‘Life’s The Best Compliment’. I had no words to say and in what other way can I express my happiness. I can never forget his compliment in my life. Raghavendra Rao garu gave classic pieces like ‘Annamayya’, ‘Sri Ramadasu’ and ‘Shirdi Sai’. This film has turned out to be the highest grosser film in my career.”
“My father watched Shirdi Sai in America along with the audience in theatre. He called me immediately over phone and congratulated me saying that he liked the film a lot. He also opined that commercial scenes in this kind of film are not necessary. I replied him saying that the audience wouldn’t watch the film without those scenes. We consider him as the best critic in our family,” he added.
About Chiranjeevi compliment he said, “Chiranjeevi garu watched Shirdi Sai, called me over phone and appreciated my performance. He also commented, “I’m feeling jealous because I couldn’t do films of this genre. I also very sad for not getting such opportunities.” So I can’t forget his compliment also. Similarly Rajamouli and Vinayak also congratulated me.”
About piracy he said, “I felt very sad after learning that a 19 year old boy pirated this film. It was even more shocking when I heard that he was practicing to pirate films through cam carding from the age of 14. He is exactly Akhil’s age. He also posted this film in 103 websites. It’s very unfortunate that children are going on wrong path’s and spoiling their future. Parents should be responsible and be aware of what their children are doing. I felt very bad for handing over him to police.”
About acting in historical films he commented, “I would certainly do provided I get a good story and good director. I love to do films like ‘Ramayanam’ and ‘Mahabharatam’. But right now all my present films are commercial oriented ones.”
He concluded saying, “I’m going to Europe today for the ‘Love Story’ shooting. With the success mood of Shirdi Sai, I’m going to romance Nayantara and sing duets.”
Producer A Maheswara Reddy said, “The Shirdi Sai Vijaya Yatra was like a festival. My main aim was to reveal Baba’s nature to the people. My happiness on the release day of this film was as much as I felt in 2006 when my family made few gold ornaments for Baba. Besides Andhra Pradesh, Shirdi Sai was released in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Dubai, Gemany, New Zealand and many other countries. And there is outstanding response from everywhere. ‘Shirdi Sai’ has become the milestone film in Nagarjuna and Raghavendra Rao’s career. We are planning to dub this film in Tamil, Malayalam, Hindi and Marati in another 3 months. I thank Baba and Raghavendra Rao garu for giving me such wonderful opportunity to produce a film like ‘Shirdi Sai’.
Parachuri Gopala Krishna also expressed his happiness for the success of the film and for working for a good film like ‘Shirdi Sai.
