Nagarjuna released the trailer that has a dialogue “Na Gunde Chappude O Damaruka Nadam”. After the presentation of Triple Platinum Disc Shields he said, “This is my 4th film in DSP combination. ‘Damarukam’ has mix of morning slokam, keerthana on Lord Shiva, romantic song and mass masala song like ‘Sakkubhai’. Devisri is a star in music and Dr Venkat is yet another star. He is a very committed person. This movie actually got completed by December 25th last year. The film got delayed by 9 months for the reasons like CG works and ‘Sakkubhai’ song. We are finally going to release the film on October 19th in a big way. Ravi Shankar played a wonderful role in this film. His performance in this film reminded me of SVR in ‘Maya Bazaar’. Fire Play company did an outstanding job in Graphics. I congratulated them after receiving the first copy. After seeing the graphics in this film, I felt that he should be called as ‘Avtaar’ of India. Vijay fights are fantastic too. The songs and fights in this film may once again make the audience call me as Manmadhudu. According to me, if the film would have released on October 12th, the openings would have been great since it’s the beginning of Dussera holidays. I wholeheartedly wish for the success of all films along with our film.”
Charmi said, “Sakkubhai Salam song earned me a greater recognition. Devisri rocks once again with his music. I’m very happy that Nag has called me a Lucky Champ.”
Devisri Prasad said, “The craze for my music has increased with Nagarjuna’s ‘Manmadhudu’ film. I’m very happy that I’ve completed 50 films with his film. While I was thinking of a mass song like ‘Na Pere Meena Kumari…’, Ramajogayya Sastry garu said the word‘Sakkubhai’ and I attached Garam Chai to it. That’s how ‘Sakkubhai’ song was created. I’m very happy to note that all songs are big hits. The entire credit goes to my music team. All have worked hard day and night to bring out the best output.”
Director Srinivas Reddy said, “Damarukam movie is my three years of hard work. Many writers have worked for the story given by Veligonda Srinivas Rao. We worked on the script for 1 ½ years and crafted the movie like an idol. There is superb response for Devisri’s music. We are celebrating the triple platinum disc function within one month of release of the audio. Now the expectations have gone up to the sky with the success of audio in such a huge range. I thank Devisri Prasad and the lyricists for making the audio a grand success. I also thank the Dr Venkat garu for offering me this prestigious film and making it with high technical values without compromising in the budget. My producers are my Gods and I will be grateful to them all through my life. I’m very confident that the film will become super duper hit.”
K Atchi Reddy said, “We have completed the censor formalities today and the censor board have given U/A certificate with minor cuts. The director will definitely see the fruitful results for the efforts he has put to design this film. Devi’s music is fantastic. We are releasing the film grandly on October 19th. I hope the audience will watch and appreciate it.”
Ravi Shankar, Bhaskara Bhatla and Jonnavithula also spoke in the function.
