As mentioned earlier, the Vajrotsavam celebrations of Natabooshana Sobhan Babu will be held on Saturday, the 30th June 2012 at Shilpa Kala Vedika in Hyderabad. Regarding this function a press meet was organised at Hyderabad Film Chamber by the President of MAA, Murali Mohan.
Speaking to the media Murali Mohan said, “I’m a great fan of Sobhan Babu. He is one of the finest artists who remained in the hearts of his fans even after 16 years of his retired life and is no more between us for the past 5 years. I learnt about his huge fanfare only on the day of his death. He is neither attached to politics nor is he a great business magnet, still he earned a special place in people’s hearts as an actor. It’s not an easy task to organize Sobhan Babu’s Vajrotsavam celebrations amidst his huge fanfare and the entire Tollywood celebrities. We are making efforts to celebrate it as a grand event on June 30th at Shilpa Kala Vedika. In this regard
Chief Minister Sri Nallari Kiran Kumar Reddy has been invited as the Chief Guest of this function. Other top celebrities who will be present are Krishna, Krishnam Raju, Nagarjuna, Venkatesh, Jaya Pradha, Jaya Chitra, Bhanu Priya, etc. I hope this function will be a grand success which is being organised by his fans.”
Tamareddy Bharadwaja said, “We have organised many successful events like this in the past. However, this time we are planning this function without any commercial thoughts. The Movie Artists Association has selected 75 poor technicians for whom Rs 10,000/- will be gifted on the name of Sobhan Babu’s name on the function day.”
R Narayana Murthy said, “We are very happy to note that the fans of Sobhan Babu are self-organizing this function without taking any financial help from anyone. Sobhan Babu deserves this Vajrotsavam programme as he is the man who knows the family as well as social values.”
Suresh Kondeti said, “For the first time Sobhan Babu garu’s son has agreed to participate in this function inspired by the fans’ efforts to celebrate this event.”
Senior director Relangi Narasimha Rao said, “Invitations for all artists and technicians except 10 persons who worked with Sobhan Babu have been sent. Despite trying our best we could not get the contacts of those 10 persons. I hope everyone will take part in this programme that is being organised by his fans with great efforts.”
