Actor Akkineni Nagarjuna is excited about the success of the recently released Telugu film Bangarraju. He said that the Telugu audience did not drop the film and I would bow to their response.
Speaking at the success of the blockbuster film ⁇At its inaugural weekend of 50 crores, Nagarjuna thanked the Telugu audience who showed up in theaters to see their film.
“It simply came to our notice then. At a time when films were being stopped in North India and we were wondering whether or not to release our film, it was the Telugu cinema enthusiasts who insisted on continuing our release. Promised to see our picture. I salute the Telugu audience for giving us a blockbuster, ”Nagarjuna said at the ceremony.
“The reason for the success of this film is not the confidence you have in me, but the confidence I have in the Telugu audience,” he added.
Bangarraju is the sequel to the hit Telugu film Sokkade Chinni Nayana which was released in 2016. Nagarjuna reappeared in the title role from the prequel, while Ramya Krishnan was seen as Satyabhama, the wife of Bangarraju. Naga Chaitanya also played the lead role in this film. The film stars Kriti Shetty, Salapati Rao, Rao Ramesh, Brahmaji, Vanilla Kishore and Jhansi among others.
This is the first release of Naga Chaitanya announcing her separation from Samantha Ruth Prabhu. The couple recently ended their marriage.
Samantha and Chaitanya announced their separation in October. In their statement, they said, “To all who wish us well. After much deliberation and thought (we) decided to separate as husband and wife to continue our own paths. We are lucky to have more than a decade of friendship, which has been the center of our relationship and we hope it will always have a special bond between us. We ask our fans, well-wishers and the media to support us during this difficult time and give us the privacy we need to move forward. Thank you for your support. “
