The capacity of the venue grounds was a mere 25000 and the crowds that turned up in lakhs were strangled on the roads from Pamarru to Nimmakur. Even a few celebrities who graced this occasion appeared to have got intimidated by the crowds. The celebrities who showed up included D Suresh Babu, Paruchuri brothers, Murali Mohan, YVS Chowdary, VV Vinayak and Raja Mouli. NTR unveiled the statues of his grandparents Sr. NTR and Smt. Basava Tarakam and launched the audio. For the first time in the history of Telugu film journalism, the press returned back from a film event without covering it as they could not reach out the stage in the crowds. Producers have arranged a special train for fans to attend the function. It was first of its kind audio function in Tollywood.

    • Puri jagan's assistant Meher Ramesh remade this film in Kannada as Veera Kannadiga with Puneeth Rajkumar. Meher later directed NTR in movies like Kantri and Shakthi.
