సావిత్రి గారి చరిత్ర తరతరాలకు అందించిన స్వప్న సినిమా వైజయంతి మూవీస్ కి ధన్యవాదాలు . @KeerthyOfficial పాత్ర లో జీవించింది. శివాజీ గణేశన్ గా @dulQuer నటన అద్భుతం. నాగ అశ్విన్ మరియు చిత్ర యూనిట్ కి నా అభినందనలు. ?— Raghavendra Rao K (@Ragavendraraoba) May 9, 2018
మా దత్తు గారికి ఆరోజు ఎంత ఆనందం వేసిందో ఇప్పటికి మర్చిపోలేదు.— Raghavendra Rao K (@Ragavendraraoba) May 9, 2018
అదే రోజు న నేడు మహానటి విడుదలయింది. ఆరోజున జగదేక వీరుడు అతిలోకసుందరి నిర్మించడానికి ఎంత ధైర్యం కావాలో నేడు మహానటి నిర్మించడానికి అంతే ధైర్యం కావాలి. ??????
28 ఏళ్ళ క్రితం ఇదే రోజున భారీ వర్షం... చాలా పెద్ద సినిమా తీసాము అనే ఆనందం, ఎలా ఆడుతుందో అనే భయం. ఎప్పుడు వరద ఆగుతుందో అనే ఎదురుచూపు...— Raghavendra Rao K (@Ragavendraraoba) May 9, 2018
ఎట్టకేలకు సాయంత్రం నుంచి సినిమా హాళ్ల వైపు జనాలు కదిలారు... మరుసటి రోజు నుంచి వరద థియేటర్లలో అభిమానుల రూపంలో రావడం మొదలైంది.
బాలనటి నుంచి మహానటి వరకు నాతో ప్రయాణం చేసిన శ్రీదేవి హఠాన్మరణం అత్యంత బాధాకరం . భారతీయ చిత్ర పరిశ్రమ కి తీరని లోటు.. ఎక్కడున్నా తన ఆత్మకి శాంతి చేకూరాలని కోరుకుంటున్నాను. ??— Raghavendra Rao K (@Ragavendraraoba) February 25, 2018
