Allu Aravind launched the big CD and audio CDs by presenting the first CD to Dil Raju.
Wishing all the best to the team, Allu Aravind said, “BVSN Prasad and I have good relationship. He worked as co-producer for ‘Magadheera’. The film ‘Tholi Prema’ has earned fame to Pawan Kalyan. Likewise, I wish this ‘Tholi Prema’ will earn the same popularity to Varun Tej. Thaman has given extraordinary music. I wish ‘Tholi Prema’ will become big hit.”
“If anything goes wrong, you will be stirring up a hornet’s nest” – Varun Tej
Speaking on the occasion, hero Varun Tej said, “When we are looking for the suitable title for the film, director Venky has suggested the title ‘Tholi Prema’. Initially I was afraid to choose this title. I said, “If anything goes wrong, you will be stirring up a hornet’s nest.” Because it is the title of my Babai’s film and it’s like eye contact movie for him. We all know how successful the film was. We are extremely confident that the film will give complete justice to the title. I am sure the film will not disappoint anyone. I have listened to this script before doing ‘Loafer’ and ‘Fidaa’. I was very much impressed by the story and it touched my heart. I would like to thank producers Bobby and Bhogapalli Prasad garu for giving me such a wonderful film. Priyadarshi and Hyper Aadi along with my personal friends have acted in the film. A good love story needs and good music and camera work. Thaman has provided beautiful music, while George has given excellent visuals. It’s a tough job to choose heroines for me because of my height. For the first time I got Rashi Khanna who is perfectly suitable to my height. Raashi has given perfect justice to her character Varsha in the film. We will do good films without spoiling the strong foundation laid by Pedanana and Babai.”
Director Venky Atluri said, “Dil Raju is the person who trusted me and made industry to trust me. Varun has given lot of encouragement to me. Bapineedu has boosted my confidence levels. I have given lot of pressure to Thaman and Srimani for good songs. George has presented my dream beautifully on the screen. Editor Naveen has done a good job. I am thankful to senior actor Naresh, Aadi, Priyadarshi and Apoorva for their support. Raashi who has been ruling audience hearts as glamour queen so far, will impress audience with her performance through this film. I am thankful to everyone who supported me.”
SS Thaman thanked director and producers for having given him the wonderful opportunity.
Heroine Raashi Khanna said, “The film ‘Tholi Prema’ is close to my heart. I am sure the film will make me proud. Vely Atluri has designed my character wonderfully with an amazing script. I am confident that the film will impress all sects of audience. Cinematographer George has presented each and every scene beautifully. Varun has done the film with great passion.”
Speaking on the occasion, Dil Raju said, “This is one of the best albums of Thaman. Bapineedu has given total rights of ‘Tholi Prema’ to me. Such things will happen rarely. Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Tholi Prema’ has created sensation in 1998. Likewise, I wish Varun Tej’s ‘Tholi Prema’ will become sensational hit in 2018. It’s a beautiful love story. The chemistry between Varun and Raashi Khana worked out wonderfully.”
All others who attended the function too spoke and wished for the success of the film. The film features Raashi Khanna as the female lead. Venky Atluri is the director. BVSN Prasad is bankrolling the project on Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitram LLP banner. The film is slated to hit screens on February 9.
