The pre-release event of 'Shailaja Reddy Alludu' was held on Sunday evening in Hyderabad. Nagarjuna and Nani graced the occasion as main guests. To be released on Sept 13, the family-comedy entertainer has been directed by Maruthi and produced by S Naga Vamsi and PDV Prasad.
Seasoned star Nagarjuna said, "Chaitanya is the grandson of Akkineni Nageswara Rao and elder son of Nagarjuna. Dad carved a niche for himself with love stories and films with strong characters for actresses and now Chai is carrying his legacy. People think that Chaitanya is a soft guy but he is quite naughty. I have acted with Ramya and many films and she carries herself well. Maruthi is an adept in dishing out mass movies. Recalling his friendship with NTR’s son, he said, "I used to call Harikrishna garu 'Anna'. He died on my birthday and when I came to know about it, I was at a loss to understand what to make out of it,” he added.
Another guest Nani said, "There are two reasons why I have attended this function. If Maruthi and his team are one reason, the other reason is that I am missing Nagarjuna garu ever since the shooting of 'Devdas' was over.” he added. Naga Chaitanya said, "Akkineni fans are my biggest strength. In return for the love that you shower on us, you seek only a hit from us. I will keep the fans in mind before doing every film from now,’ he assured.
