Hyderabad feeels like home. The kind of love, I have for cinema and you have for cinema is amazing. I think Tamil and Telugu industries will be part of world cinema. You've encouraged other industries films like Kantara, KGF and many other Tamil films. Telugu industry filled the confidence in other industries that actually go for theatrical releases. I thank all the audience who came here for Thangalaan. It was an amazing experience to work such a versatile and talented actor Chiyaan Vikram garu for the first time. The kind of hardwork Pa Ranjith and our team put for the film is just so inspiring. I thank GV Prakash brother for his contribution for the film. Two gems in directing and acting collaborated together to bring a great cinema for the audience.
Director - Pa Raniith
Thank you for your love and you guys are true cinema lovers. You've loved the every content from Thangalaan and it is all beacuse of our team and Gnanavel Raja garu. I alwys fear Telugu audience, because thier love is very true. Now south Indian cinemas are dominating and it is reaching world cinema because of our content. Like RRR and Vikram changed the phenomenon.
I have huge respect on Chiyaan Vikram sir from student days because he is one of the actor who respects art a lot. I've waited so long to work with him and I got the opportunity finally. When he okays a gilm, his whole body dedicated to the film. Every technician put thier heart and soul for the film understanding my vision. I hope you all like the film and thanks to the guests who came here to support of our film.

What an energy, what a love for cinema. It was a superb reaction for the teaser from live audience. I like to thank young directors and actors for coming here. Surrender Reddy and Vinay worked as assistant directors for Thommidhi Nelalu film. I have no dialogue in the film like in Shiva Putrudu. The team worked very hard for Thangalaan. It's a raw, emotional and gritty drama. It’s a very different film and doesn’t follow the grammar of regular film. It was continuous work from morning to evening and it took 3 hours to makeup me for the look.
We were leading the same life as those inhabitants everyday. I've never done film like this. Thanks to Gnanavel Raja garu for giving us the freedom. He's always done phenomenal films and he will be going to next level after Thangalaan. The film is a new world and I like to thank our whole team for thier hard work. Whenever we visit foreign, people recoginsed us and used ask that are we from Bollywood? But south india cinema changed and it is reaching global stage. From the last few years, it's all the domination of south films. Even our technicians are creating sensation in Bollywood. Recently Atlee delivered one of biggest hits with Shah Rukh Khan sir, then KGF, RRR and Baahubali. I like to thank SS Rajamouli sir for giving us hope that we can also dream Oscars. Thank you for paving us the way.
Chiyaan Vikram, Parvathy, Malavika Mohanan, Pashupathi, Harikrishnan, Anbu Durai etc.
