I thank Nag fans association for taking action against the piracy. I wish the audience will also support to eradicate the piracy. I request all to convey any information regarding piracy to [email protected]
Anushka said, “I’m very happy to do a film of similar genre to ‘Arundathi’. Lord Shiva is my favourite God right from my childhood. Hence it reminded me of my childhood days. I worked as a devotee than an artist for ‘Dhamarukamm’. Pasupathy’s character in ‘Arundathi’ is as fearful as ‘Andakasurudu’ in ‘Dhamarukamm’. It was a great experience working with Srinivasa Reddy garu. I thank the audience for making the film a grand success.”
K Atchi Reddy said, “My apologies to Nagarjuna fans for delaying the release of the film due to small reasons. ‘Dhamarukamm’ has become the biggest hit in Nagarjuna’s career by collecting Rs 18 crores in 3 days. I thank him for supporting us in the release of the film. I also thank the audience on behalf of our banner.”
Chota K Naidu said, “I worked for Dasari garu for seven years. But this is the first time he invited me to his residence for lunch and praised me saying that my cinematography in this film is exceptional. That is my most unforgettable moment in life. All artists in the film have done wonderful job. Anushka is a golden artist in Telugu film industry. I congratulate Srinivasa Reddy for crafting the movie excellently.”
According to director Srinivasa Reddy, “Being a small director, I’m really fortunate to get the opportunity to direct a movie in the combination of RR Movie Makers and Nagarjuna combination. I’m glad to make a successful movie by utilizing the opportunity in the right manner. My special thanks to Nagarjuna garu and the entire team. This is Nagarjuna’s first socio-fantasy film and it collected the highest share. The movie got positive talk all over. Family and women audience have increased from Sunday onwards. It’s nice to hear people compare ‘Dhamarukamm’ with Shiva temple. Devisri’s music, Gautham Raju’s editing, Pireplay graphics, Vijay master’s fights and Ravi Shankar and Ganesh’s performances are the main highlights of this film. Ravi Shankar’s performance in few scenes reminded me of SVR. I congratulate him on behalf of the entire team. I will always be grateful to Venkat garu and Nagarjuna garu for trusting me and my story and giving me the opportunity. I’m happy for living up to their expectations. I would definitely do more good movies if Venkat garu gives me more opportunities. Anushka is the best actress not just in Telugu industry but in the entire Indian Cinema. Akkineni Nageswara Rao garu personally appreciated me saying that I’ve done a wonderful job without any defects. Infact the entire Akkineni family showered praises on me. Nagarjuna garu offered me to direct Naga Chaitanya even before the release of this film. I would definitely live up to their expectations. I thank the audience for making ‘Dhamarukamm’ a big hit.”
Ravi Shankar, Ganesh Venkatraman, Krishna Bhagawan and others also spoke in the success meet and expressed their happiness.
