Hyderabad: Nandamuri Balakrishna and Boyapati Srinu's 'Akhanda' had a long, stunning run and has completed 100 days, a feat almost forgotten these days. The team celebrated the eve with a massive public event in Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh.

Speaking at the event, Balakrishna said, "It's been many years since 100-day celebrations were held among these many people. Due to COVID-19, the shooting of the movie had come to a halt for a few days."

He added, "Akhanda manages to entertain as well as inform. Whenever nature, dharma, and women face some danger, god comes in some form as a saviour. Director Boyapati gave a good message conveyed through my character. 'Akhanda' has been praised by people all over the world, not just the Telugu people. I would like to express my gratitude to god for giving me Akhanda."

Director Boyapati Srinu was excited and thanked the fans profusely. "Simha is my third film and first with Balayya. He has done more than 90 films, including ones based on mythology and folklore, action and family dramas. Our 13-year-long journey is very fruitful. The strength of Balakrishna is his fans. It's only possible for them (fans) to create or rewrite history. Balayya Babu is a great man. I would like to express my gratitude to the team and technical staff who assisted me on my long journey," he said.

He further added, "The fans of other heroes have also sincerely contributed to Akhanda's success. From the common people to scholars, from children to adults, everyone considered this film their own. It is very rare to talk about nature, divinity, and dharma in a mass commercial film."
