While speaking at the event, Venkaiah Naidu is all praise for NTR and his son Balakrishna. He said "It is absolutely necessary to write the history of a great person and make a movie on his life. Balakrishna should be appreciated for taking up such a project. A son playing the role of his father is indeed historical. It will start a new chapter in the history of India."
He added "I'm fortunate to attend this programme. Usually, Presidents and Vice-Presidents do not attend this kind of programmes. But I attended the programme because of my affection, the friendship I have shared with NTR.. he implemented several welfare programmes. There is no one who is not an NTR fan. NTR created history in Cinema and even politics. He is the symbol of Telugu pride. New generations should know about NTR. I wish the team all the best. I appreciate Balakrishna for continuing the legacy of his father."
