Celebrities from Tamil and Bollywood remained the special attraction of the audio launch function of Snehitudu, a remake of Tamil movie Nanban. The glitz and glamour event was attended by Bollywood filmmakers Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Raju Hirani, Tamil actors Vijay, Srikanth and many other well-known personalities.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Ram Charan Teja jointly launched the music album of Snehitudu last evening (January 19) at Shilpa Kala Vedika, Hyderabad. He presented the CDs to the other guests like Raju Hirani, Sharman Joshi, Ileana D'Cruz, Vijay, Srikanth, Sathyaraj, SJ Surya, musician Harris Jayaraj, sound engineer Resul Pookutty.
Speaking at the function, Shankar, whose films often get dubbed in Telugu, narrated how and why he decided to do a remake for the first time. The filmmaker said that it was during the shooting of Robot, when the filming was cancelled due to some reasons in Pune, he, by chance, saw Bollywood movie 3 Idiots along with the film unit.
While his team was having fun watching the film, the director was not able to enjoy, as he was worried about the delay in his movie. Shankar suddenly realised it and made his mind to watch without thinking about his project. This is when he came to know that how wonderful 3 Idiots was and he instantly decided to remake it so that the South Indian audience could also get the same kind of entertainment.
On his turn, Vijay spoke in Telugu and said that he love Telugu audience and movies. Other guests, who were present at the event, echoed the similar thoughts and hoped that Snehitudu would impress the Kollywood audience.Click here to see audio launch pics.
