Along with the cast of the movie, Puneeth Rajkumar was also present at the conference who served as the chief guest. During the press conference, Puneeth revealed some of the fondest memories of actor-politician NT Rama Rao.
“Because of my father, I had the fortune of meeting great people when I was young. NTR sir used to call my father Thammudu (brother),” said Raajakumara actor.
“In the early 1980s, NTR sir was playing a race driver in a movie and the shooting was happening at AVM Studios. Even my father was shooting there. He took me to the sets where NTR sir was shooting. I saw a car and asked my father to get me that. Knowing this, NTR sir had sent that car to our house. But we sent it back,” said Rajkumar.
Puneeth further added: “In 1986, there was an international film festival in Hyderabad. He was wearing an orange dress like the one we saw in the trailer. All big actors from across the country arrived in Hyderabad for the event. And NTR sir was standing near the flight to welcome everyone. At the time, he presented us a big picture of Lord Venkateshwara, which we still have at our house. I was blessed to have the fortune to sit on his (NTR) lap. And I will cherish these moments forever.”
Talking about the friendship between his father and NTR, Puneeth said: “Ballaya (Nandamuri Balakrishna) is like my big brother. He visits us whenever he is in Bengaluru. And he treats us with so much love when we go to his place. He is very close to Shivanna (Shivarajkumar).”
