The talk of the town is that Krish Jagarlamudi mentions that we do not know our history and that’s very sad. Movie Gautamiputra Satakarni is a historic movie directed by great Director Krish who mentions that this is a movie about Satavahana ruler who is rarely known by the people of present age. The audio launch of this movie was recently conducted where we saw Director Krish talking many things in an emotional and heart breaking ways. Yet he stood all confident with his words and the feeling he has for his upcoming movie. Why not he be confident as this is Actor Balakrishna’s 100th movie in this industry and he is very much satisfied and happy for his upcoming movie. The Director said “It’s surprising how we don’t know our history. Not many of us know who Gautamiputra Satakarni is. In Maharashtra, they know him as the person Chatrapati Shivaji was asked to look up to by his mother... Even the Tamilians know him as the great Nootruvar Kannar. But we don’t know him!” Adding “His kingdom’s Simhadwara was at Kotilingala in Karimnagar, and his capital was in Amaravati; his reign spread as far as Himachal Pradesh. I keep telling my team that if this man was a Greek man, several movies would have been made on him and probably won a few Oscars too. I am really happy to be bringing to life the story of this great man, his achievements and his glory on the big screen.” This audio launch was conducted in the very holy place Tirupati along with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu.
