Ashok story at a glance
Ashok is a short-tempered young man. In a heated incident, his father (Prakash Raj) gets rid of him out of the house. He falls in love with Anjali (Sameera Reddy). KK (Sonu Sood) is a big gangster who sets his eyes on Anjali. Ashok wins Anjali through love and KK wants to force her into a marriage. The rest of the story is all about how Ashok eliminates the baddies.
The first look teaser of the movie with the dialogue “ee Ashok ante old city lo andariki theliyakapovachu but naa chethilo debbalu thinnavadu matram jeevithantham marchipodu” had created a sensation then. The movie did not reach the expectations of the movie and remained a flop in NTR’s career.
There were heavy rumours in the industry then that NTR is dating Sameera Reddy during ‘Ashok’ times.
The movie was later dubbed in to Tamil by the same name.
Surender Reddy made Balakrishna sound clap board for Ashok. As his first movie, Athanokkade went on to become a hit when Balayya sounded the clap board.
The movie is entirely shot with the latest trendy camera Super 35mm. The producer had spent around 25 lakhs to buy the accessories of Super 35mm from Germany.
