At a reunion bash held at Geetha Arts office, Hyderabad on Tuesday, the team of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo celebrated the first anniversary of the colossal hit. Barring Tabu, Jayaram, Sachin Khedekar, Easwari Rao and Murali Sharma, the other cast members were in attendance at the do. Speaking later, film’s writer-director Trivikram said the film demanded a lot from everyone after the script was approved by joint producer Allu Aravind.
“As we locked the edit and exhibited the film to the key members before it opened for a theatrical release, Allu Bobby expressed his reservations about one particular scene. We immediately felt it was a valid suggestion and reshot it,” the star director said. He added that the interval scene — where Bantu (played by Allu Arjun) discovers who his real parent’s are – was more crucial than the climax. “I was sure if we get it right, we would pass the muster. Our confidence that the scene would come alive got a short in the arm when Eeswari Rao garu gave a brilliant take in the first shot of the scene,” he recalled.
Allu Arjun said while the year has been bad for everyone, he couldn’t complain as it was special because of the film. “It is my best film. If we had released it for summer, I would’ve lost out on experiencing such a wonderful feeling. I was mostly confined to home during the lockdown but I never felt low even for a second because wherever I’ve been, people just kept talking great things about the film, thereby giving me more energy. If it wasn’t for it, I wouldn’t have been in good spirits for sure,” the actor stated. The film revolves around Bantu who grows up being constantly subjected to his father’s scorn, until he learns of his real parentage. He later finds a way to enter Vaikunthapurram, the home of his real parents and confront those who threaten his family.
