He had good will power. He was very affectionate with everyone. He is one of those who brought pride to the word ‘Producer’. He used lend his support to the director. He never bothered about success and failures. He made the film ‘Vishwanatha Nayakudu’ with a huge budget of Rs 7 crores. He entered this world royally and went away royally. I pray for his soul to rest in peace.”
Dr D Ramanaidu said, “Vadde Ramesh did very good films. He did about 10 films with Dasari garu and all are almost hits. We were good friends from the time we stayed in Madras. He earned a good name as a producer. I pray for his soul to rest in peace.”

It’s very heart-wrenching to note that several prominent film personalities are passing away. My association with Ramesh garu was 40 years.”
