The pre-release event of Allu Arjun and Anu Emmanuel starrer ‘Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India’ was held in a grand manner on April 29 in Hyderabad. Directed by debutant Vakkantam Vamsi, the film is one of the hugely awaited films of the year. With all the positive buzz surrounded, the film will hit the screens worldwide on May 4. Mega Power Star Ram Charan graced the event as chief guest.
Speaking on the occasion, Ram Charan said, “I have watched the trailer. We know Bunny’s performance, thirst to achieve success and his commitment and dedication towards work. During our childhood, he used to entertain everyone whenever we had a family function or get together. My father used to say that I should learn from Bunny. During the times of ‘Chirutha’, when my father was feeling apprehensive about my dances, he is the one who boosted his confidence. Generally, we have the perception that only Tamil directors make sensible films. But, if we look at the trend in the last two years, we made many critically acclaimed films. My ‘Rangasthalam’ is one such film and ‘Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India’ is going to be yet another of that kind. Vamsi, who worked as a writer for my ‘Yevadu’, has put in a genuine effort in directing this film. I always wanted to be part of a movie which is based on military genre and ‘Druva’ fulfilled my dreams. We have many genuine directors and I wish Vamsi too will join that league. Congratulations to Raju Ravi, producers and Anu Emmanuel. Arun is my favourite actor and I will be in constant touch with him. I am glad that he is part of my brother Bunny’s film. If there is any industry that is corruption free, this should be the one. Everyone is so dedicated in this industry. All the heroes including Allu Arjun, Mahesh Babu, NTR, my father, Balakrishna and Prabhas and everyone got injured while working. But, those injuries are not going to stop anyone of us. For the past two months, we have seen lot of false news and negativity in the media. Truth is that people don’t such fake news. So far we have seen Bunny as an entertainer and dancer. He always wants to do some intense characters and one such character is ‘Gona Gannareddy’ even though the character span is very less, he received appreciations from all corners. In this film you see such intense for two and half hours. Let’s wait and watch how many awards this film is going to get.”
Allu Arjun said, “First of all I would like to thank the Indian Army on behalf of this film for their support. I also thanks to Nallamalupu Bujji, who brought this story to me. I support him forever. I wanted Sridhar to produce ‘Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India’. I know him from the times of ‘Style’. He has done many good films with great passion. I am thankful to him for accepting my proposal. He trusted the debut director and has spent more then what they do for making a film with star director. Naga Babu garu is one of my beloved persons. I am happy that I reached the stage to make a film for him. My fans are the reason for where I am today. Thanks to Bunny Vas garu for his support. Thanks to writers Sitarama Sastry garu, Ramajogayya Sastry garu, art director Rajiv garu, cinematographer Rajiv Ravi garu. Bollywood music duo Vishal-Sekhar has given wonderful music which is beyond our expectations. I consider myself lucky to be working with Arjun garu. Thanks to the artists Sarath Kumar, Rao Ramesh, Anoop Singh and Harish Uttaman and everyone in the team. Doing an honest film is my long-time dream. If the film becomes success, entire credit goes to Vakkantham Vamsi. Special thanks to Charan for gracing the event. Positive mood has been created among buyers with his ‘Rangasthalam’. Congratulations to Mahesh garu and Koratala Siva garu. I am extremely confident that ‘Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India’ will become big success. I wish all the best to the films ‘Mahanati’ and Mohanbabu’s film.”
Addressing the gathering, Vakkantham Vamsi said, “Many hands joined to make our dream come true. I have redied a script. When I was feeling apprehensive to approach Bunny, my brother Nallamalupu Bujji took it to him. Thanks to him. I am thankful to my parents, wife and Darsakarathna Dasari Narayana Rao garu, who introduced me to the film industry. He is no more with us. But, I am glad that ‘Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India’ is releasing on his birth anniversary. Rajiv Ravi, who picturised many great films, has given lot of support. Thanks to production designer Rajivan garu and chief co-director Siva. Bunny Vas garu has created comfort for me. Thanks to Lagadapati Sridhar garu and Nagababu garu. It’s not a simple think that such a star hero like Bunny has trusted a debutant director. I am very happy that I have made a great film. Bunny trusted me and I hope I did it. The story of the film is about the aim of hero to become an army officer. Arjun garu was very much impressed by the script and given lot of support. Great artists like Sarathkumar, Nadhiya, Boman Irani and Harish Uttaman. The film will have all commercial elements which audience look for. I am extremely confident on the success of the film. ‘Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India’ will make audience feel proud.”
