Darsakaratna Dasari Narayana Rao presented the Platinum Disc to Kalyan Ram.
Later while speaking Dasari said, “NTR stepped into the film industry 7 years after it was established. He became a part of it from then onwards and opened the path for his sons and grandsons. No one can forget NTR and his family as long as the Telugu film industry exists. During that period Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao and Nandamuri Trivikram Rao produced many good films. When it comes to this generation heroes, Kalyan Ram started his own banner named ‘NTR Arts’ and earned name as a good producer. He is a hard worker and determined towards what he does. I appreciate him for developing knowledge in other departments like dubbing, music, editing, etc., with his personal interest. A good film can be delivered with good story and a good team like good director, good producer, good actors and good technicians. Vakkantham Vamsi provided very good story. I introduced him as hero in my film ‘Kalyana Praptirastu’. Since the title ‘Kathi’ will aptly suit the story of this film, I fought for it on behalf of Kalyan Ram. I wish a grand success for this film.”
Balakrishna while speaking, “Music plays vital role for the commercial success of the film and Mani Sharma is a factionist in music. He provided many hits to our family. His original name is Subrahmanya Sharma, but he has changed it into Mani Sharma. He is shining in the music world as much as the pearl on cobra’s head shines. I’m sure the music of ‘Kathi’ will rewrite the past records. An actor should live in the writer’s character without realizing that he is acting. That is the quality of a good actor. Right from his childhood Kalyan Ram does what he feels is right. He had that clarity and confidence in him right from the beginning. Kalyan Ram never showcases heroines in his films as glamour dolls. The role of heroine will also have equal importance. Therefore I wish Sana Khan a grand successful start of her film career through this film.”
Hari Krishna said, “The audience made ‘Adhurs’ and ‘Brindavanam’ big hits and I hope to achieve the hattrick in 2010 with the success of ‘Kalyan Ram Kathi’. When Kalyan Ram started NTR Arts banner, I told him that he has to maintain that prestigious name forever. A producer should always think of making good films under his banner and the director also should have urge to direct good films. My father was never satisfied when the film ‘Dana Veera Soora Karna’ film. He felt that movie could have been crafted even better than the actual output. My father and Akkineni Nageswara Rao garu performed jole patti yatra to unite the entire Telugu film industry. Now it is being said that tsunami will break our state into many pieces. I request that we all should unite and face it. We will save our brothers and sisters. In this regard, we are donating Rs 3 lakh on behalf of NTR Arts banner to Telugu Desam Party fund. This cheque will be handed over to Chandra Babu Naidu garu very soon.”
“This year we have hits in the form of ‘Adhurs’, ‘Simha’ and ‘Brindavanam’ and I’m sure ‘Kathi’ will be included in the list soon. Take this as my word. Mallikarjun is lucky to get one such producer. ‘Kathi’ shall be on success path. Jai NTR,” said Jr NTR.
Director Mallikarjun said, “Kathi is sure to impress the audience. I’m very happy that the audio is a big success. The fans will truly enjoy the film with all required elements. I thank Kalyan Ram for giving me this wonderful platform.”
