"I feel happy to have scored a blockbuster, which went on to become an industry hit. If Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo record is broken soon, it would mean that Tollywood is progressing at a brisk pace." Allu Arjun said.
Directed by Trivikram, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is the biggest Non-Bahubali hit in the Telugu film industry. The film was bankrolled by Haarika Hassine creations and Geetha Arts. The makers held a grand success meet event in which distributors and exhibitors took part.
Speaking at the event, actor Harshavardhan said, "The dialogues in the film are close to my heart and I am really happy that even the audience felt the same way. I got the opportunity to work in two big films after Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo and I couldn't be more excited. This film marks a key change of fortunes in my career."
Murali Sharma said, "It has been less than a year since my father passed away. Incidentally, this film spread happiness to me and my family for the past year or so. I would like to thank Trivikram for the same for fulfilling many of my dreams. He truly is a Word Wizard. Also, I feel honoured to have worked with top production houses like Geetha Arts and Haarika Hassine creations. I have to thank Trivikram for writing a story like Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo and giving me the role of Valmiki. Thaman is a rock star. I absolutely love Bunny. I never saw Bunny on sets as he transformed himself into Buntu."
Sushanth said, "In general, we all hope our films farewell, but I never knew Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo was such a huge hit. I know how hard we all worked for the film. It eventually became a Non-Bahubali hit and I am elated. I learnt a lot while working with Trivikram. The first thing that comes to my mind while I hear the name Bunny is dance. But he delivered a super strong performance in Ala Vaikunthapurramloo. I think Allu Aravind garu and Chinnababu garu are very happy now. I feel happy to have danced for a song like Ramuloo Ramulaa.
Aditya Music MD, Aditya said Thaman delivered a blockbuster album for the film and this is a proud moment for him. He wished Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo breaks more such records.
Thaman said, "Trivikram, Bunny, and I have scored a hat-trick with Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo after Race Gurram and Sarrainodu. This gave me more energy while working on Ala Vaikunthapurramloo album and even my technicians gave their 100% for it. Moreover, the fact that Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is an industry hit gives me more happiness. Seetharama Sastry garu, and Ramajogayya Sastry garu gave very good lyrics for the songs. Allu Aravind garu and Chinnababu Garu never compromised with the quality of the product. I can experiment around more after Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo album became a raging hit. I wish to deliver more such albums now."
Allu Aravind said the distributors play a key role in a film's exhibition and he respects them a lot. "I have been giving shields to many movie units right from my first production venture, Vijetha. I took part in many such events along with Chiranjeevi Garu. It has been a long time since I attended an event like this, given the change in the revenue system and I am again doing it now for Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo."
Trivikram thanked the audience for receiving Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo so very well right from the day the songs were released.
Stylish star Allu Arjun said, "Geetha Arts are not just a production house, it is also a distribution company. Many distributors previously asked me why they weren't being invited to success meets. I used to say I would invite them after I scored a blockbuster of such huge magnitude. Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is one such film and I have to thank the audience for the same. Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo movie unit's efforts would account to 50% of the success and the remaining 50% would belong to the distributors who took this film closer to the audience. Also, I would like to thank my producers Allu Aravind and S Radhakrishna for their support. My father, Alli Aravind introduced me with Gangothri and later gave a blockbuster to me with Bunny. My first film with Chinnababu is Julayi and it was a big hit. Later, we worked on Son of Sathyamurthy. Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo was jointly bankrolled in their combination and it is an industry hit now.
I have to especially thank Bunny Vasu and Vakkantham Vamsi as they were the ones who bought Trivikram on board. And also, I have to thank my personal staff, with whom I spend most of my time. It is our responsibility to celebrate the success of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo along with the distributors and exhibitors. I feel happy to have scored a blockbuster, which went on to become an industry hit. If Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo record is broken soon, it would mean that Tollywood is progressing at a brisk pace. I am personally happy with the success of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo but it is a passing phase. Another disclaimer to be noted here is that I smoked a cigarette in 'Sittharala Sirapadu' song. It became a huge hit. But I urge youngsters and adults not to imitate me by smoking cigarettes. Even I don't smoke in real life. I am completely against it as it is injurious to health. Also, I have to thank my army who have been by my side all along. I would like to thank Telugu audience for making Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo such a huge hit and also other language audience."
