Shilpa Kala Vedika, Hyderabad, witnessed a fancy pre-release function of the much awaited movie, Katamarayudu, which was less of a star-studded event but more of a celebration filled with fan frenzy moments.
With the magical director, Guruji, Trivikram Srinivas holding
the guest of honours, the function registered a lot of lighter
moments from the team and Pawan Kalyan himself, which sent the fans
in the arena tizzy and as well made the television viewers grin
more than a couple of times.
The trailer of the movie was also released at the event. Watch

Here are some of the touchpoints covered by the dignitaries
during the said function.
Anup Rubens: This young music director
attributed his success and gave lion's credit share to Pawan Kalyan
for infusing trust and confidence in him. Though he seemed a bit
edgy (understandably so), he was also pumped up with
happiness.Kishore Kumar Pardasani: The movie's director, who is
fondly known as Dolly, thanked Power Star profusely for his
commitment and word when the latter promised one more movie with
the director after Gopala Gopala.
The Tadakha director, wished to work more and more with the
Gabbar Singh star for the rapport they share and for the built
relationship which he wished to extend.
Ram Jogaiah Shastry: Ace lyricist recalled an
incident while penning lyric for the title track. Apart from the
delivered lyrics which is the finalized version, he sang a few
lines which was not considered for it to be a perfect fit into the
But those lines were sure enough to have sent goosebumps to
Kalyan fans as it was purely describing Pawan Kalyan's off screen
characteristics and his projected image in politics.
TV CEO Ravi Prakash: This 3 min long speech was
more of Pawan Kalyan's political life and his service than
concerning the movie. He came with some hard hitting statements on
both state and central government and projected PK as the youth
force and a ray of light.
Trivikram Srinivas: This man never fails to impress audience
with his amazing speech which combines intelligence and wit. He
touched both cinema and political aspects of Pawan Kalyan with his
intellectual talk and made audience to applaud and whistle for his
shower of praiseworthy wordings on the 45-year-old actor.
We all know that Trivikram and Pawan Kalyan are not just
colleagues of a certain industry, but also share a great friendship
off screen which makes their mutual admiration even more appealing
Bandla Ganesh: Probably this is the only person
who gets the widest cheer and appreciation from Pawan Kalyan fans.
He makes sure he delivers entertaining speeches with power packed
intensity. He always proves that he is more a Pawan Kalyan fan than
a producer or a screen actor.
His comparison of Pawan Kalyan with the likes of Subash Chandra
Bose, Bhagat Singh, Lal Bahaddur Shastri, Mahatma Gandhi etc.,
along with the description and association drawn between them made
the venue burst into a high decibel sound for a complete duration
of 4 minutes. It was his final slogan which received extensive
ovation where he quotes "My name is Bandla Ganesh, My god is Pawan
Pawan Kalyan: Finally, the centre of attraction
himself. The stylish icon was clad in Dhoti and Kurta which made
him look more desi and gave him a politician appeal. The dynamic
actor spoke and connected to his fans throughout his speech.
His description of characters he played in few of his movies and its importance to the mankind or society was very well described. His gestures, smile and the way he rendered the speech which was not just entertaining with quick wits but also was motivational of sorts.
He also amazed the audience by revealing the storyline though
the unit tends to reserve the same till the movie hits theatres to
build the suspense (even if the movie is a remake). He poured
showers of praise on his elder brother, K. Chiranjeevi, where he
quoted "I never feel myself as a hero as Annaya Chiranjeevi is the
hero for me".
Going by the trend and the craze being followed, it more or less seems to set a straight all-time day 1 record in AP/TG circuits. We wish Katamarayudu to be huge blockbuster.
