The pre-release event of the controversial flick, Taxiwala, happened in Hyderabad yesterday. The movie had got leaked a few months back in a raw format and thus, even the review of the movie too spread like wild fire. It now is a daunting task for the entire team of Taxiwala to produce the same flick to the audience and entice them.
The pre-release event was a star-studded one being embraced by fans of Vijay Deverakonda and Stylish Star Allu Arjuna. Bunny was invited as the chief guest for Vijay's previous flick, Geetha Govindam as well and now, for Taxiwala.
A self-claimed Mega fan who grew up in the land of Eluru by chanting slogans of Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan, he elevated himself as a movie tracker and eventually transformed himself into a producer. Calling Allu Aravind as his godfather and Bunny as his hero of life, SKN was confident about the movie's output and its performance at the box office despite the piracy leak.
He thanked director Maruthi of Geetha Govindam for taking time and getting a script arranged for the debutant producer.
The gorgeous actress revealed that she had a huge crush on the stylish star when she was in the process of giving a look test for the movie Dhruva, and it was at that time she was blown away by the stylish star's gesture and appeal.
She wanted to stand at par with Vijay in terms of rendering a mind-blowing pre-release event speech but failed to point down the notes. She was seen as being very jubilated and was indeed pumped up with the movie's output.
Bunny, the chief guest of the event, stated that the producer of the flick, SKN, is a producer now but an all-time Mega family fan. It is the proximity between them and the bonding they share that prompted the Stylish Star to accept the invitation. He was happy to accept that the heroine, Priyanka Jawalkar, was a Marathi-born girl but grew up in Hyderabad.
Bunny wished the team of RRR on the same stage and extended his wishes to Tarak, Ram Charan and Rajamouli as well. Bunny whole-heartedly wished Vijay for being a gem of an actor and person. He said Vijay has a bunch of haters due to his success but the same would never affect the young star, as he has the potential to cross all those hurdles. Bunny also requested the fans to discourage piracy and save the cinema industry.
Classmate of actor Vijay Deverakonda at one point of time and now colleagues in the same industry, friends from a long time, he was happy for the lead actor and abundantly thanked producer SKN for being a guide.
The young and dynamic star was ecstatic to be received with humongous response from his Rowdy fans. He initially thanked & welcomed Allu Arjuna for gracing the event, while he reminisced Bunny's constant interaction and encouragement to Vijay after every movie of the young star.
He thanked the fans for accepting the actor the way he is and elevating him to a star. Vijay invited debut supporting actor Vishnu and writer Sai on to the stage and thus introduced them to the audience.
He had special words about the movie's director, Rahul Sankritya, as the young director has never worked as an associate director under any experienced technician but instead, he learnt the art of cinema making by surfing the internet.
Taxiwala stars Vijay Devarakonda, Priyanka Jawalkar, Ravi Prakash, Malvika Nair and others in the lead cast. Being directed by Rahul, the flick is bank-rolled by Bunny Vas & SKN. Taxiwala is all set to hit screens on 16th of November.
