The venue is reverberating with the cheer and this is the success of ‘Rangasthalam’. I wholeheartedly wish the cheer should not stop and ‘Rangasthalam’ should break many more records and achieve many more successes. I congratulate Sukumar garu to have made a film which stood as a pride of India. Thanks to Naveen garu, Ravi Shankar garu and Mohan garu for for standing as big support for such a wonderful film. Long back I watched ‘Tholi Prema’ in theatre and now, I watched ‘Rangasthalam’. This is one film that touched my heart. I am extremely happy that the worldwide ratings have crossed some big films of Hollywood also. Ram Charan is an amazing actor. I am just like Ram Charan’s elder brother. When I would cuddle in the rugs, he used to go for horse riding. Ram Charan has a constant thirst for new knowledge. He is a complete actor. He got into the skin of the character in Rangasthalam. After seeing his performance I had given him a tight hug and praised his acting. I wish Charan will do many more wonderful films in his career. I believe that Charan’s fame will not stop here, it will reach subcontinental range.”
“Sukumar has readied an amazing script. Anasuya has perfectly dwelled in Rangamatta character. Jagapathi Babu garu has played a wonderful role in the film. Samantha garu has given excellent performance. Ratnavel’s cinematography is my favourite. Devi Sri Prasad’s music and Chandrabose’s lyrics are wonderful. Costume designer and art department have given lot of support. Thanks to Sukumar garu for inducing a good art director. Congratulations to the art director Ramakrishna and his wife Mounika garu. The film should be sent to Oscara. We all should get united for doing it so,” said Pawan Kalyan.
Mega Power Star Ram Charan said, “Sukumar is my favourite director. I that Sukumar garu to have given me a wonderful role and to have made a wonderful film for fans, audience and Telugu film industry. I am thankful to Samantha, Aadi, Anasuya, Brahmaji, Jagapathi Babu, Mahesh and Prakash Raj and all artists who worked for the film. I can’t forget the reaction of my parents after watching the film. Especially, my mother was speechless and tears rolled down her cheeks. She made me sit next to her affectionately. Atfter that when I was in the idea to ask my Babai to watch Rangastham, he called me and congratulated me. At that time, he didn’t watch the film. When I asked him that I will arrange a show at home, he said that he will watch in theatre along with audience. He watched the film in theatre amidst audience. I am very happy that this is the film he watched in theatre after his ‘Tholi Prema’. I am thankful to director Sukumar garu and to the producers for having given me such a wonderful film.”
Praising each and every technician who worked for the film, Sukumar said, “Every film will have a team behind the screens and that is direction department. Ramesh garu has been giving technical support since ‘Arya’. Prasad annayya and Sriman are very supportive. Kasi and Pratap are the main reasons for the good outcome of the story. Even though, he got several offers after ‘Kumari 21F’, he worked for ‘Rangasthalam’. My special thanks to him. My disciple Buchi has given encouragement in designing characterisations. Seenu has added aesthetic sense to the film. ‘Rangasthalam’ is an ensemble effort. All normal scenes in the film are penned by me and the scenes which were well received by audience are by my team. Srikanth, Prasad, Simha, Pawan and Veeru and all others who worked for the film are the reasons behind the success of the film.”
