The Businessman Audio Release
The grand gala audio event of Mahesh Babu-Puri Jagannath’s ‘Businessman’ was held at Shilpa Kala Vedika in Hyderabad on Thursday evening. This is Puri Jagannath and Mahesh Babu’s second film after ‘Pokiri’ which is being produced by Dr Venkat under R R Movie Makers with Kajal opposite Mahesh Babu. SS Thaman scored the music. The music was launched in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam languages on the same dais. While the Telugu audio CDs were released by Sreenu Vaitla, the Tamil version was released by Krishna and Vijaya Nirmala, the Malayalam version was released by Rajamouli, Atchi Reddy and Charmi. ‘Businessman’ memory card was released by Mahesh Babu.
The audio function was attended by Dr D Ramanaidu, Krishna, Vijaya Nirmala, Mahesh Babu, Namrata, Kajal, Sreenu vaitla, S S Rajamouli, Rama Rajamouli, Dil Raju, Charmi, Nisha Agarwal, SS Thaman, Nazar, Bhaskara Bhatla, Anil Sunkara, Ram Achanta, Ramesh Puppala and others.
Later addressing the gathering Krishna said, “I thank Mahesh’s fans and the respected guests who have come to this audio function. While ‘Pokiri’ created history in 75 years of Telugu film industry, ‘Dhookudu’ had rewritten the history in 80 years of Telugu Film Industry. I wish ‘Businessman’ to cross both the records with the collections of Rs 150 crores. Thaman scored wonderful music. This is the first time that an audio of the film is being released in three languages at the same time.”
Vijaya Nirmala said, “This function appears to me like a 100 days function. ‘Pokiri’ in the combination of Puri and Mahesh was a super duper hit. I wish ‘Businessman’ also to get the same success.”
Ramanaidu also offered his best wishes to Mahesh Babu and said that the film should become a grand success.
SS Rajamouli said, “I wish Mahesh Babu to get as much craze in Tamil and Malayalam as Rajinikanth in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. I think I must learn the tips from Puri for making successful films since my wife keeps pulling my leg whenever he delivers a hit. SS Thaman’s music is wonderful. I wanted to do a film with Mahesh Babu. However the fans have to decide whether I should direct ‘Alluri Seetaramaraju’ or ‘Goodachari 116’.”
Puri Jagannath said, “Mahesh always does 10 times more than what we expect. We can have a sound sleep while working with him. We completed this film in 74 days. I thank him for that.”
Mahesh Babu said, “I’m very happy today. My entire ‘Dhookudu’ team is here. ‘Businessman’ movie got completed so fast that we did not even sense when it started. Dialogues are extremely catchy that Puri commented that he did not write these dialogues, it was Mahesh who made me write. Thaman’s music is the highlight of the film. All technicians gave their support and really worked hard. Cinematographer Shyam K Naidu captured me in excellent angles. Kajal’s performance is wonderful. ‘Businessman’ is going to be released on January 11th which is going to be yet another festival for the fans.”
As usual RR Movie Makers presented cheques to Spoothi Foundation, Vishwahita Education Trust, C H Saroja, Jaya Krishna, Jagan Mohan, R Vijaya Lakshmi, etc.
