On stage, the 18 Pages team expressed their special bond and respect for Allu Arjun. Addressing the event, Allu Arjun wished the entire team of 18 Pages and wished good luck. He said “18 pages is very close and important film to me, because everyone in this team are my family.” Coming to Nikhil, I have been following his work since Happy Days, and every time he has given superhits with different scripts, I am astounded by his eye for good scripts. Best wishes, Nikhil.
He expressed gratitude to Bunny Vas, Sukumar, Palnati Surya Pratap, and the entire team, and shared his special bond with them. Reacting to his fans request about Pushpa updates, Allu Arjun said that he used to ask Sukumar about Pushpa 2 updates, or else he will reveal all the dialogues from the movie. He added that he cannot reveal anything about the film but will reveal a dialogue. He said the ‘Assalu Thaggedhe Le’ dialogue.
Prior to this, genius director Sukumar delivered a fantastic speech in which he remembered each and every member of the team. He expressed gratitude to Palnati Surya Pratap, Bunny Vas, and producer Allu Aravind for always being present and caring for him. Talking about Anupama he said “Actually, Anupama was supposed to work as a heroine for Rangasthalam, and we auditioned her, but it didn’t happen. Anu, we have to work on an exciting project.
He also gave a small update about Pushpa 2, he said “We’ve recently started Pushpa The Rule shoot and completed 5 days filming. Believe me, your hero Allu Arjun’s attention to detail, expressions, and concern for Pushpa 2 was brilliant. This time, Pushpa 2 will be, I won’t say anything more than that.
Everyone was moved by Sensational Hero Nikhil’s emotional speech. He said “SS Rajamouli garu, Sukumar garu, and Allu Arjun garu paved the way for many regional films to become Pan India films. And, thanks to you, our Karthikeya 2 also made it big. 2022 has been great year for me with the blockbuster success and Allu Arjun garu attending the event, and at the same time I lost my father this year and Allu Aravind garu was there for me at the event even in his busy works. He was almost like a father figure to me.”
He continued “I’d like to thank Bunny Vas garu for his passion of cinema and my director Palnati Surya Pratap brother for working on a film for three years and treating it like a baby. Hats off to your persistence and dedication, brother, and on the 23rd, you’ll all see what Surya Pratap created. And this film was written by creative director Sukumar Garu, whose films I enjoy, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched Arya with my friends. And when he said, “I’ve written a script, will you do it?”. I was surprised and it made me happy to act in the role you’ve written sir. I believe Siddhu will be the best role in my life. And I am grateful that you chose me.
I’m standing here with confidence because I know how this film will turn out. It’s a very good film, and you’ll all have something to say about it on December 23rd.
The grand pre release event concluded on a happy note, with exciting speeches from the entire cast and crew and dance performances. Pushpa director Sukumar has penned the script for 18 Pages.
