While everybody expected the film's release to be delayed due to the sudden demise of DSP's father, Sathyamurthy, the music director returned to work, in great spirit within two days, just to fulfill the commitments. Though Sukumar, NTR and the makers of Nannaku Prematho asked DSP to take his own time to cope with the loss, DSP got back to work.
When singer Raghu Dixit had written an emotional story about DSP, seeing his commitment towards work, the music director's reply to it has moved everybody's hearts. "Thank U 4 d kind words Raghu sir..My Dad always says "Work 1st".. So goin ahead to keep up what he taught me!", read a tweet from DSP, quoting Raghu Dixit's words for him.
Incidentally, the title Nannaku Prematho means 'With Love To Father' and this cannot get anymore soul-stirring. Kudos to Devi Sri Prasad for his love towards his work and for keeping up the values his father taught him.
Meanwhile, Nannaku Prematho team had completed filming most of the talkie part after the Spain schedule and the balance shoot of a song is soon going to happen at RFC in a specially erected set. Since things are falling in place at the right time, it is almost sure that the film will hit screens on 13 January, in the Pongal trail and the audio launch date will soon be announced.
