mike was first handed over to Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao. He associated
himself with Chiranjeevi by saying that both of them entered the film
industry in the same year and both of them did not have any backing in the
industry. He said that he got the biggest opportunity to write to
Chiranjeevi for a pucca mass film after Gharana Modugu and
he did his best job.
Paruchuri Gopala Krishna was invited to speak. He played it to the
galleries by praising the mass appeal and stamina of Chiranjeevi. He also
narrated a couple of dialogues in the film, which made the fans go gaga
over them. There is one particular dialogue in which Chiranjeevi
approaches the Govt officer in Rayalaseema and tells - 'Nenu praja
samasyalanu techaanu. Veetini 24 gantalalo gaa solve cheyyandi. Meeru
solve cheyyaka pothe, 24 gantala tarvatha ikkada prabhutvam vundadu'.
There is also another powerful dialogue with the villain in this film,
which Chiru ends with the ferocious act of 'Thoda Kottadam'.
Sirivennela also has some good words to say about Indra film and
Chiranjeevi. Sirivennela penned three songs for this film.
it was Chinni Krishna, who stole the limelight with his emotional speech.
He said that he is the greatest fan of Chiranjeevi and he waited for 5
years to get Chiranjeevi's project. He also told that Aswini Dutt demanded
a fabulous script for Silver Jubilee year of Vyjayanthi films. They went
to Kaasi and prepared a wonderful story, with complete mass appeal. In the
beginning of his speech he mentioned to fans by saying 'naaku telusu.
Meeru sarigga nidra povadam ledani. Naaku telusu. Meeru moodu pootla
bhojanam sarigga cheyyatam ledani.' He assured that Indra would
satisfy the fans need and box office need. He referred to Chiru as 'Annayya'
in his speech. At the end of speech he told that Indra will create box
office records and he asked fans to come and demand explanation by
catching his collar if the film is not up to their expectations. His
speech is very well received by the fans.
Chiranjeevi entered in style by wearing a shaded black jeans and a printed
black shirt having the graffiti of 'Shadow' on it. The organizers arranged
a series of huge pots on the way to dais, which exploded and showered
colorful paper pieces on Chiranjeevi. Chiranjeevi is looking very
glamorous and manly in that dress and he is in cheerful mood. He greeted
his fans in his inimitable style.
selected a coupon from the lucky dip box and called out the lucky fan on
stage. Chiranjeevi opened the audio box and handed over the first cassette
to that fan. Being an elated fan he is, he tried touching the feet of
Chiranjeevi. But Chiranjeevi stopped him.
he started narrating about his experiences, which prompted him to make
'Indra'. Read in his own words
"Recently I met a couple college students. They told me that they are
unhappy with my films, as there are no mass fights in my last couple of
films. They asked to put good mass fights in my films. I thanked them.
One day I was talking to few guys at a function. Then a few girls
approached me. They complained saying that I talk only with guys. I said
hi to them and clarified that I do not have any gender bias. Then they
told me that my recent films had a couple of good dances in them. But
they want all the songs to have terrific dances. I said ok.
When I was coming to India from abroad, I am met by a NRI who is
returning India. He is really shaken by looking at me. He told that he
is my fan and he regularly follows my films even in USA. He requested me
that my films do not have mass dialogues. He told that he is very upset.
He was so much moved after talking to me that he was literally crying. I
consoled him and told him not to worry.
attended a conference by IAS people. Over a cup of tea, they poured a
complaint saying that being a responsible citizen and senior hero; I
should drive good messages across the audiences through my films. They
wanted some kind of social message in my films. I assured them that they
wouldn't be disappointed.
Now I got feedback from all sections of the people. I told Aswini Dutt
garu to select a script that has got all the ingredients the people are
asking for. And the result is Indra."
Chiranjeevi do not have the habit of praising his films when they are in
production. But for Indra, he assured his fans that Indra is going to be a
perfect treat. The fans asked Chiru to tell a dialogue from Indra. But
Chiranjeevi cautiously told that telling about scenes or dialogues of a
film in making would prompt others who are releasing their film prior to
Indra to copy (is he referring to anyone?).
Chiranjeevi requested the fans to stop piracy of audio and video. He
explained how the Telugu film industry is suffering with the evil of
piracy and urged fans to complain to either police or to the film
distributors if they come across any pirates. His message was heeded by
fans with pin drop silence.
they screens a six minutes clip on Vyjayanthi movies and their films with
Chiru. It is followed by another visual treat where three songs of 1
minute each are shown on screen from Indra film. The first song is a
family oriented reunion kind of song where Chiru (clad in white dhoti and
shirt with a red cloth tied around his waist) dancing in rain along with
similarly dressed family members like Ahuti Prasad and Tanikella Bharani.
The second song is Bum Bum Bole, which is shot in the backdrop of
Waranasi. This song is really good one with cool steps and classy
picturization. Third song is 'Sim Sim' canned on Chiranjeevi and
Sonali Bendre. It is sung by Udit Narayan, which has great scope for
dances. (I heard that the three other songs in the album are better than
During the screening of second song - when the lights were off - Chiru
cleverly tried making a silent exit. But fans, who always had their eye on
him cheered him as he makes an exit.
all it's a nice privileged experience to witness the mass adulation shown
by the fans on their favorite star and the Chiranjeevi's cheerful speech
to their eager fans. The audio would hit the market on Monday (17th June).
