On this occasion, a victory celebration was held on Sunday as ‘Veeramas Block Buster’. In this program, Nandamuri Balakrishna said, “Veerasimha Reddy is not a movie. It is a journey. What kind of story should I do when Gopichand Malineni came to me! We thought that. Earlier I did not understand Gopichand Maline as Chennakesava Reddy. Gopichand Chennakesava Reddy immediately said that Seema’s blood will curdle. So we shot the movie with a factional backdrop. My body language is lacking. This is a blast. The movie was a huge success. Sai Madhav Burra and Rama Jogaiah Shastri wrote good words and songs. My fans, Telugu audience and fans in other states also liked the movie. Everyone is saying that the movie is good,” he said. The film unit including Honey Rose, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar, Harish Shankar, Vishwak Sen, Sidhu Jonnalagadda and others participated as guests. Balakrishna starrer after blockbuster like Akhanda. This movie also became another blockbuster movie in his career. Honey Rose and Shruti Haasan acted as heroines. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Duniya Vijay acted in key roles.
