A grand musical night was hosted by the team of Naga Chaitanya, Nagarjuna starrer Bangarraju in Hyderabad during the previous weekend amidst the cast and crew in attendance. Directed by Kalyan Krishna Kurasala, the film is directed by Kalyan Krishna Kurasala and is set to hit theatres on January 14. Anup Rubens has scored the music for the rural entertainer that features Ramya Krishna and Krithi Shetty as the female leads.

"We couldn't invite our fans for this event and we're sorry for that. January 14 is an important day in the history of Annapurna Studio. On January 14, the studio came into existence and it's also the very day that my dad's film with Vanisri (garu), Dasara Bullodu, released and made a killing at the box office. Good music is half the job done in delivering a good film and I would like to thank Anup for a fantastic album for Bangarraju," Nagarjuna said.

"Every song in Bangarraju is like a pearl. It's a superhit album and the lyrics have played their part well in its success. The movie will go beyond your expectations. We're releasing the trailer on January 11. I hope audiences greet us in theatres for the festival day for a festival-like film. See you on January 12," the star added.

Naga Chaitanya stated, "We had conducted a similar event for Manam in the past and it's good to celebrate the music of a film like Bangarraju again. I am grateful to audiences for appreciating Bangarraju's music. Every album that Anup has composed for our banner has been a big hit. He takes inputs from everyone and delivers great results. The lyricists have done a commendable job. Bangarraju is a film you must enjoy with your friends and families for the festival. I couldn't have been more thankful to my father (Nagarjuna) and the director." 

Krithy Shetty mentioned, "Bangaara is the first dance number in my career and Bhaskarabhatla garu's lyrics, Madhu Priya's rendition truly struck a chord with me. It was a rewarding experience to have shared screen space with veterans like Nagarjuna, Ramya Krishna in the film. Naga Chaitanya has been an immensely supportive co-star."

Director Kalyan Krishna admitted that good music has a big say in the way the film performs at the box office and applauded Anup Rubens for coming up with a terrific score for Bangarraju. "Nagarjuna's films have never disappointed audiences with their music. My collaboration with Naga Chaitanya, Raa Randoi Veduka Chooddam, too was a musical hit in the past. Nagarjuna (sir) keeps offering us a lot of valuable suggestion. We worked hard on the title song and it took the effort of over 100 people over 100 days to bring Bangarraju to you. The title is a fitting way to address Nagarjuna garu as well," he quipped.

Actors Faria Abdullah, Daksha Nagarkar, Sumanth, lyricists Bhaskarabhatla Ravi Kumar, Kasarla Shyam, Balaji, cinematographer Yuvraj, Naga Susheela and Darshana were also part of the event.
