Megasta Chiranjeevi's Shankardada Zindabad audio was launched on Wednesday on a grand scale at Shilpakalavedika at Madhapur, Hyderabad. Venkatesh released the first cassette and handed over it to Pawan Kalyan. The audio CD was released by Pawan Kalyan and K Raghavendra Rao received the first CD from him. Devi Sri Prasad performed a dance show that was well received by fans. Heroine Mamata Mohandas who sang a song in the film too did perform a number that attracted many claps. Prabhudeva did a dance bit from the film. All big cinema personalities and stars including Venkatesh, Allu Arjun, M S Raju, Trivikram Srinivas, S J Surya, K L Narayana, Suresh Babu, Allu Aravind, Dil Raju, and heroine Karishma Kotak attended.
Fans are my inspiration. You make me to work and strive. The impact of your love always reflects in every step and work of my life. That is why I always like to meet you in occasions such as these. Today, "Hu..Ha..Hu..Ha.." has become tarakamantram for all of you. The credit for that line goes to Devi Sri Prasad. He used the phrase Shankardada Zindabad in Shankardada MBBS and today everyone is calling me by it wherever I go.
Devi Sri has given rocking music in that film and here he gave much bigger audio than that. You all will enjoy it. You used to come to me when he was child along with his father Satyamurthy. I knew his talent then and sensed that he'd become good music director one day. See, today he has become top music director. He is talented and gives what my fans want from me.
For almost 10, 14 years, Pawan Kalyan wants to act with me but it never happened until now. When he was shooting for "Gudumba Shankar", he just came to see me where I was shooting for "Shankardada MBBS" on another floor in the same studio. Unknowingly, he came on the field of camera. When cameraman told him, Kalyan told his wish that he wanted to act with me. So that is how he appeared in that movie for just few seconds. Kalyan used to wish that Srikanth become too busy so that he could not play the role of ATM. Kalyan wished to play that role. I am glad that he played a very small but important character in "Shankardada Zindabad". It is going to be a treat for all of you.
Srikanth once again did the role of ATM with conviction. We share good rapport. He is like my brother. Karishma Kotak is good in the film. I am amazed at Mamata Mohandas's versatility. She is beauty with talent. I am impressed with her talent and I am eager to act with her in my next films.
Prabhudeva gave me many super hit songs as a dance director. This is the first time he is directing me. I like his direction. He has poetic touch that brought new dimension to the original film.
Apart from the film, I also must thank my friend and colleague Venkatesh. Normally, no hero attends other hero's movies because they might feel embarrassed by fans' comments. But Venkatesh shown his broadmindedness and attended this function as chief guest. I thank him.
"I always wanted to be in annaya's films. Sometimes I had impulsion of doing a junior artiste kind of appearance in his films. My dream of sharing screen with him fulfilled with "Shankardada MBBS". And in this film, I am double satisfied. I am great fan of annayya like you. I do what all you wanted to do and wants to do. My character is similar to lakhs of his fans."
" I wish the film a big success. I liked "Shankardada MBBS" and its songs. I am sure "Shankardada Zindabad" surpasses it. "
