Sri Jagadguru Aadishankara Logo & Trailer Launch
The logo and trailer of J K Bharavi’s ‘Sri Jagadguru Aadisankara’ was launched today at Film Chamber in Hyderabad. Dr Dasari Narayana Rao, Sri Ramachandra (Indian Idol), Srihari, T Prasanna Kumar, producer Nara Jaya Sridevi, J K Bharavi, Kaushik Babu and others attended the event.
Nara Jaya Sridevi is making a devotional film ‘Sri Jagadguru Aadi Shankara’ featuring Nagarjuna, Srihari, Mohan Babu, Kaushik Babu, Suman, Sri Ramachandra (Indian Idol), etc., as the main cast. This movie is being directed by none other than J K Bharavi, who is the script writer for films like ‘Annamayya’, ‘Sri Manjunatha’, ‘Sri Ramadasu’, etc.
After the logo and trailer launch Dr Dasari Narayana Rao said, “Although I had no opportunity to go to the temple today, the God made me to visit a temple like ‘Sri Jagadguru Aadishankara’. I’m very happy to participate in one such spiritual programme on the day of Maha Sivaratri. The trailers are giving me the feel of having Lord Shiva’s darshan. Bharavi is one of those persons who have as much knowledge as the sea. There are many who reached top positions without talent and there are many like Bharavi who are being unnoticed despite having enormous talent. He narrated ‘Annamayya’, ‘Sri Manjunatha’ and ‘Sri Ramadasu’ to me which I was not aware of these ghatams in purana sastrams. And now ‘Sri Jagadguru Aadisankara’ is the fourth ghata. The story is so wonderful that had I known it initially I would have taken up this project. Kaushik is a successful hero in Malayalam. Everyone in Kerala relate him with Lord Ayyappa. Bharavi wanted me to do a role in this film. I normally do not agree to do any role except the main one. However, I’m willing to do any role for Bharavi. I prefer to work with normal actors than star heroes because my aim is to encourage new talent. Of late many movies are becoming hit only by stardom and not by story. According to me a movie with good content should be encouraged, only then the industry will grow. Sri Ramachandra brought pride to us by bagging the title Indian Idol despite being a Telugu man. I appreciate him for his efforts and wish him all the best. I offer my best wishes to all the artists and technicians who worked for this film.”
Sri Ramachandra said, “I’m very happy to meet Dasari Narayana Rao garu after earning myself a recognition as Indian Idol. I’m making my debut as an actor through a wonderful role in this film. I thank each and every one for supporting me to become an Indian Idol and I hope that this kind of encouragement will continue to be forever.”
Kaushik Babu said, “80% of the shooting has been completed so far. Initially when I heard the story I was not confident about doing this role, however Bharavi garu extracted work from me as per his requirements. I’m very happy for giving me one such wonderful role. This film will showcase how the 2nd century was. The audience will get the opportunity to watch the film soon. I hope everyone will like the film.”
Producer Nara Jaya Sridevi said, “So far I’ve completed 24 films in three languages. Very soon I will be completing the silver jubilee.”
J K Bharavi said, “It’s a winning sign for the film since the logo was launched through Dasari Narayana Rao garu. I organised this function today only to receive his blessings. Kaushik Babu, who earned a special image in Malayalam film industry is playing the title role. Similarly Nagarjuna, Srihari, Mohan Babu and Suman also played very good roles in this film considering them responsible for Hindu dharma. Sri Ramachandra played an attractive role in this film. I whole-heartedly thank all of them and the technicians on this occasion.”
