KC Bokadia says, " I came from a very small town in Rajasthan. My father hadn't watched a single film. Hailing from such family, I came to Bombay and made 'Riwaaz' with Sanjeev Kumar in 1972 withstanding high competition. It is an unforgettable experience for me. 'Pyar Jukhtha Nahin', released in 1985 became a silver jubilee film in all the languages it was released.I launched 'BMB Production' after my father BM Bokadia's name and made 'Teri Meherbaniyan'. It was a big hit and went on to become a big hit in all the languages it was remade.My directorial 'Aaj Ka Arjun' with Amitabh Bachchan was a huge hit. I went on to work with Amitabh on many movies later on. I never worked under any director. I was trained for half an hour at Tamil director Mannivannan and directed a movie. Latha Mangeshkar supported me a lot and sang for many of my films. I worked for 5 films with Rajinikanth. I worked with more than 100 stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth, Ajay Devgn, Sunny Deol, Akshay Kumar, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan. It was me who introduced Priyanka Chopra . Media has supported me well and I'm in this position only because of media. 'Namaste Nestama' is my first Telugu film. It is being made as a part - 2 for 'Teri Meherbaniyan' and I am sure it will be a super hit. We made this film with two dogs. Sri Ram played an important role Brahmanandam, Nassar, Sayaji Shinde, Taagubothu Ramesh, and others have key roles. I hope this film's success will pave way for me to make more Telugu films. Thanks to BA Raju garu who has been supporting me in promoting this film."
Actor Taagubothu Ramesh says, " I played an assistant to Brahmanandam garu, who will be seen as a dog trainer in this movie. It's a very good role. Bokadaia garu's experience is evident during the shoot of the film. He plans very well for every scene and I'm lucky to have worked with him".
