Speaking on this occasion Ramgopal Varma said, "I was born in Hyderabad, but due the unique atmosphere and my attachment, I am holding the audio function of James here. I also did my graduation in Siddartha. We are going to release the film on 16th September. I can say that James is taken with new taking, new technology and new actors and does not have any mafia backdrop as of my previous films. James is the story of a man with self-respect which has more freshness in the film. All my Hindi films are being dubbed into Telugu because of the encouragement I get here. I would be making a film on media very soon. I also bought the remake rights of Sholay. I wanted to make a film on Veerappan, but his sudden demise caused us stop the story discussions. I would also do a Hollywood film in future".
Ramgopal Varma answered the questions raised by the college students who attended the function. Rajagopal recollected their old memories and wished the film to be a great success and others also spoke on the occasion.
