Mithrudu Success Meet
Nandamuri Balakrishna’s ‘Mitrudu’ was released on May 1st and is said to be running successfully all over Andhra Pradesh. Therefore a success meet was organized at RK Cineplex. Balakrishna, Mahadevan, Priyamani, Chandra Mohan, Ranganath, Krishna Prasad, Deepak, Raghubabu, Hema and others attended the event.
Speaking to the gathering director Mahadev said that this being his first directorial venture is an unforgettable one in his life. He said that he is happy to work with a star like Balakrishna who was spontaneous to do a fire scene. He also thanked producer Krishna Prasad for giving him this big opportunity to work with a big star in his very first film.
“I’ve done four films under this banner in the past and all are family entertainers, but my role in ‘Mitrudu’ is quite different. I was pretty impressed with the narration style of Mahadev although he was new to the film industry. He is a real professional and just focus on his work. He never went over-board and praised me. I liked this quality in him. For the first time I played a very simple character which is very difficult to portray for actors like me who always use to tell heavy dialogues. The story fits in to three generations. I would like to thank my entire unit members for their wonderful co-operation and hardwork. Mani Sharma’s music, Ram-Lakshman’s fights are the main assets to ‘Mitrudu’. This apart, Priyamani played her part very naturally. I thank the audience for their wonderful support and encouragement”, said Balakrishna.
Sivalenka Krishna Prasad who produced Balakrishna’s ‘Aditya 369’ in the past opined that the colletions might increase for ‘Mitrudu’, like for ‘Aditya 369’ since this is yet another film with a new concept. He informed that this is his fourth film with Balakrishna.
Priyamani conveyed her desire to act with Balakrishna if she gets a chance once again. She said that she watched the film only today. She also said that although there are a few powerful dialogues and action sequences in ‘Mitrudu’, the film is very clean to watch it again.
The other team members too spoke to the media and conveyed their happiness for the successful talk of the film.
