Popular Tamil Hero Siva Karthikeyan is doing a special role in the film. The pre-release event of the film was held in JRC Convention, Hyderabad. Crazy Hero Vijay Deverakonda, Beautiful Raashi Khanna attended the event as chief guests. As ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’ has the backdrop of cricket, Vijay Deverakonda and Aishwarya Rajesh playing cricket onstage made this event more lively.

Creative Producer KS Rama Rao said, ” Director Kranthi Madhav is the main reason to make this film. While we are finalizing the cast for Vijay Deverakonda’s film in our banner directed by Kranthi Madhav, he has shown me the teaser of Tamil film ‘Kanaa’ in which Aishwarya Rajesh played the lead role. Seeing her in the teaser of ‘Kanaa’ we selected her for our film. I also liked the teaser and decided to remake it in Telugu but unable to get the rights. Meanwhile ‘Kanaa’ released and became a big hit. After its success, many Telugu producers were tried to buy the rights. I don’t know whether it’s because I have shown interest in the film from the beginning or it’s due to Aishwarya’s recommendation, I acquired the remake rights of the film. Then we asked her to do the Telugu version. She has fatherly affection towards me and she is on board to do ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’. I believed Bheemaneni garu will do justice to the film. The film came out very well because of immense support from Aishwarya, Rajendra Prasad. Aishwarya worked harder than the Tamil version for this film. She worked in the scorching heat during the summer in Rajahmundry. My films have strong content because of the talented people I have worked with. A producer should have the zeal to make a film stands special among 200 films that get released in a year. Then only he can survive. It’s because of Kodandarami reddy, Raviraja Pinisetty, K Viswanath, Ajay I stand here today on this stage. Bheemaneni garu worked very hard to retain the soul of the original version. Everyone will love this film and feel like watching one of the best films this year. We have confidence that ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’ will surely become a huge hit and releasing the film worldwide through Creative Commercials.”
Crazy Hero Vijay Deverakonda said, ” After ‘Pellichoopulu’ KS Rama Rao garu, Kranthi Madhav approached me with a proposal to do a film. Currently, we are shooting our film. I came here from the shoot. Aishwarya is also a part of our film. I have seen many of her Tamil films. She is a very good performer. I was very excited when she became a part of our film. We all call KS Rama Rao garu as Pappa (Daddy) on sets. He always stays on sets and provides us whatever we need like a father. Even though he is not well, He comes to sets every day. When we ask him to chill, he says that he only knows to make films. Whatever it takes he says that he will keep making the films. He reached this stage because of his undying love for films. All the best to Bheemaneni garu and the entire team. I wish this film which is releasing on August 23rd to become a huge success.
Director Bheemaneni Srinivasa Rao said, ” ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’ is a very special film for all of us. I always made films with passion. This film gave me the utmost satisfying experience like how we feel when we eat food while we are hungry. ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’ has all emotions like my early films and gave me a kick as a director. Many of my films were remakes and the reason for my high success rate is due to I change the films according to our nativity carrying the essence of the film. Many of the films became more successful than original. I have made changes and bettered this film. Though we have seen many cricket based movies recently, This stands apart as this is a female-centric film. There is no need to say about Rajendra Prasad gari performance. he did great. Tears welled up while watching Aishwarya’s performance. He is a born actor. I never thought that I will get a call from a smart producer like KS Rama Rao garu to make a film in the Creative Commercials banner. You all will definitely love this film.”
Raashi Khanna said, ” ‘Kanaa’ became a big hit in Tamil. Now it is coming as ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’ in Telugu. Aishwarya worked very hard for this film. She even won many awards for her performance in Tamil. She is very lucky to debut in Telugu with this film. KS Rama Rao garu is making content-based films for many years. All the best to the entire team. I wish the film to become a big success.”
Heroine Aishwarya Rajesh said, ” I never expected that I will debut in Telugu with ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’. I first signed for Vijay Deverakonda – Kranthi Madhav’s film in Creative Commercials. After 25 films in Tamil, I did the female-oriented film ‘Kanaa’. The film released on December 21st last year and became a blockbuster. I thank ‘Kanaa’ Producer Siva Karthikeyan, Director Arunaraja Kamaraj on this occasion. I got a film like ‘Kanaa’ after 25 films whereas I am lucky that it’s my first film in Telugu. This is a dream launch for me. Any film will get good releases and promotions only if it has a good producer. Rama Rao garu believed me. He is releasing the film worldwide on his own. My father would have been very happy if he is here today. Rama Rao garu is there for like as a father. Director Bheemaneni garu did complete justice to the film keeping the soul of the film intact. Dhibu garu gave very good music and re-recording for this film. The film will become a bigger success in Telugu. Vijay fans, go watch the film and make it a big hit.”
Natakireeti Rajendra Prasad said, ” For any actor, it should be how many memorable characters he has played and movies he acted in will count rather than how many films he did in his career. I did a small role in ‘Challenge’ film made by Creative Commercials banner. I did a memorable role in ‘Punya Stree’ and a film like ‘Muthyamantha Muddu’ in the same banner. Any film reflects the taste of the producer. Rama Rao garu has a great taste in films. He will be remembered forever for the films he has made in his banner. This film has perfect casting. Bheemaneni Srinivasa Rao garu, Rama Rao garu chose apt actors for the roles. The film carries the emotions from the original and even delivered more aspects in this version.”
Actor Karthik Raju said, ” I am happy to do my first film in Creative Commercials banner. Thanks to KS Rama Rao garu, Vallabha garu, Bheemaneni Srinivasa Rao garu for this opportunity. Everyone will call me as ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’ Karthik after the release.”
Producer Pokuri Babu Rao said, ” KS Rama Rao garu has been making great films for 40 years. He has made many Stars and Megastars by producing sensational movies. Many producers have come and went. But, he is still making films. Now his ‘Kousalya Krishnamurthy’ too will become a grand success.”
