Megastar Chiranjeevi was the chief guest for the success celebrations of "Shatamanam Bhavati" that were held on Friday evening in Hyderabad. V V Vinayak, entire cast and crew of the movie were present.
On the stage, Dil Raju felicitated V V Vinayak as he was the first director for his maiden production "Dil".
Chiranjeevi praised Dil Raju for his conviction and guts. "At a time when producers have turned into mere financiers, here we have Dil Raju who is example for real meaning of filmmaker. I must say his dil stands for guts and also for sentiment. His movies are like good vegetarian meals. Today he has earned great name among all Telugu audiences," Chiranjeevi complimented Dil Raju.
Megastar also appreciated hero Sharwanand by saying that his success is like his son's success.
"Sharwanand is good friend of my son Ram Charan and he virtually grew up at our home. Both Charan and Sharwanand used to hang out together. He also faced the camera for the first time in an ad commercial that I did long back. I am so proud of his success. He is like my son. I wish him more hits in life," Chiru said.
Dil Raju said he believed in the content of the movie and his conviction paid off dividends.
