While K Roshaiah felicitated AR Rahman’s mother by offering her a shawl, producer Singanamala Ramesh felicitated Rahman by offering the same. On behalf of producers council Satyamurthy felicitated the chief minister. Later the audio was released by AR Rahman’s mother and the first copy of it was received by Chief Minister Roshaiah.
Conveying his best wishes chief minister K Roshaiah said, “I would first congratulate the fans of Power Star. My knowledge in films is very less. But I would like to convey to you that I’m also a fan of Chiranjeevi. Pawan Kalyan is a good actor. Although I could not see all his films, I got the opportunity to watch few of them. I will also try to spare sometime for this film too. AR Rahman made out country proud and this film has music composed by one such great music director. On this occassion I offer my best wishes to Rahman, Pawan Kalyan, SJ Suryah, Nikisha Patel and to the entire unit. I wish to see more such good films in the near future.”
Addressing the gathering SJ Suryah said, “Firstly my namaskaram to the chief minister. Today is an auspicious day for me as I find all legends on the dais. In my combination with Pawan, ‘Khushi’ was the film in 2000 and now with music by AR Rahman in our combination ‘Komaram Puli’ is going to be released. The impulse to do something to his motherland is always there in Pawan. One will see the real life character of Pawan in this film. AR Rahman is a pride to India. I’m very happy to mark his presence along with his mother. I’m grateful for his affection on me. He composed and even lent his voice for a song ‘Maralante Lokham, Maralanta Nuvvu’ which I requested him for one such song on learning Pawan’s desire to do something to the welfare of the society. Now, to say a few words about ‘Aada Puli’, she is a London based Gujarathi girl, whose dream is to become a superstar overnight. And her wish got fulfilled with the opportunity she got to work with a star like Pawan Kalyan in her very first film. Chiranjeevi garu could not make it to the function today. But your claps indicate his presence here. Satya Ramamurthy is a big producer to Tamil and Telugu film industries. I appreciate his son Singanamala Ramesh, who has enough guts to make a big film with power star.”
AR Rahman said, “On this occasion I thank you all. I thank the audience of Andhra Pradesh. I thank the Telugu people all over the globe who are watching my shows abroad. My best wishes to Pawan Kalyan and the entire film unit.”
Pawan Kalyan while speaking, “Firstly I thank the chief minister for gracing the occasion despite his busy schedule. Normally I don’t attend these type of audio functions. This audio function doesn’t appear like mine at all. The reason for attending this audio function is to meet and greet AR Rahman garu. I’m very happy to felicitate him today. He is the same person even now as he was during the time of ‘Trinetrudu’ making two decades ago. After achieving Oscar and Grammy awards this is his first Telugu film. During my adolescent age by watching Hollywood flicks with my father I used to wonder why we are not growing at par with them and I always strive to reach that goal. But then I felt very proud when Rahman garu was receiving the Oscar award. Even though Rahman garu offers his prayers to Allah, I could only see Ramadasu and Tyagaraju in him.”
Speaking further Pawan said, “I was very much inspired with the story when Suryah narrated it to me. I don’t like to talk much. We must love our job and respect time. Annayya could not attend the function due to his tight schedules but gave me the courage to stand in front of you and speak a few words. I’m also a big fan of Annayya not because he is a megastar or my brother but because he is a man with great principles in life. He has no grudge on anybody. He never has any differences with anybody, that is why he participated in the recent star cricket match despite his busy schedules. In order to serve the society he joined the politics and fighting solely for it. Since we were grown under his shadow we too got inspired by his principles and thus following them.”
“I feel very shy when people call me Power Star. But when Suryah said that a song called ‘Power Star’ will be in the film, I felt a little embarrassed about it initially because I was not sure what Rahman garu would think about that. But Suryah’s intention was to present that song as a gift to my fans. If Rahman garu rendered the songs as the breath to this film, Suryah gave life to them through visual effects. I will be grateful to both of them forever. I don’t believe in records since numerous films keep releasing every year, so the records also keep changing every now and then. Right now my getup that you are seeing is for my next film. I appeared in this getup to show how my next film will be”, he concluded.
