Director Trivikram Srinivas is always regarded as ‘Wizard of Words’. And he proves it in each of his films and also in his public speeches. Recently, he made the audience cheer for him and Chiranjeevi with his explosive speech.
Here are some excerpts:
On Chiranjeevi’s fame:
Taking a path with prickly thorns, Chiranjeevi garu has built a fort and it is heaven. Today, he is our icon and everything to us.
Lord Rama, his stories, Mahatma Gandhi, Lord Hanuman, and Chiranjeevi are all exceptional. We need not search for words to talk about legends like Chiranjeevi.
Without Chiru Garu’s name, we cannot talk about Telugu cinema, South Indian cinema, and its glorious history.
On Chiranjeevi’s stardom
More than getting drunk, more than doing drugs for pleasure, more than teasing a girl for sadistic pleasure, it is better to watch a hero on-screen to get inspired. And Chiranjeevi is one such person.
After seeing the list of actors receiving highest remuneration and seeing Chiranjeevi’s name in it I felt proud that he was able to achieve it despite being a constable’s son. And he has inspired a farmer’s son like me to come into the film industry to achieve something.
On Charan and Chiranjeevi
A lion will not hunt for 10 days, but when it goes for hunting, it will strike so hard and get food for the community that might last for at least a month. Likewise, if Charan hits it, he does it so well that the box office records will talk about it. And there is no happiness for a father to lose in the hands of his son. Chiranjeevi is enjoying his happiness now.
