The audio launch event of Nagarjuna and Karthi starrer 'Oopiri' was held at Novotel Hotel in Hyderabad on March 1st. Vamsi Paidipally is the director of this movie and Gopi Sunder is the music composer. PVP is the producer.
Amala Akkineni launched the Big CD and Nagarjuna launched the audio CDs. Nagarjuna, Karthi, Prakash Raj, Kajal Aggarwal, Anasuya, Jayasudha, Vamsi Paidipally, Ashwini Dutt, Harish Shankar, Sushanth, Abburi Ravi, Ramajogaiah Sastry, Sumanth, Gabriel, Gemini Kiran, Kalyan Krishna, Adivi Sesh, Dasaradh etc attended the event.
Nagarjuna said, "I risked it when I acted in films like 'Geethanjali', 'Ninne Pelladatha', 'Annamayya', 'Soggade Chinni Nayana' etc. Coming to 'Oopiri' it has been a long journey. When I watched the original version 'The Intouchables' four years back along with Amala, I felt someone should remake it in Telugu. I also wanted to play the quadriplegic role. There is a saying that goes "If you really want something to happen, it will happen". After three years Vamsi approached me with the CD and asked me to watch the film. I immediately agreed to act in the film. I found a brother and friend in Karthi after working for this movie. PVP is this movie's Oopiri. I am sure this film will garner acclaim to me like 'Shiva', 'Geethanjali', 'Annamayya' etc".
Karthi said, "I said double Ok to act in this film, when I came to know that Nagarjuna sir is acting in it. Acting with him is like a big gift to me.".
Vamsi Paidipally said, "Without Nagarjuna and Karthi, this film wouldn't have materialized. They are the film's Oopiri. PVP believed in me and I thank him. Gopi Sunder gave a beautiful music score".
