Many movie buffs will remember the name of the Chimp from “AdaviSimhaalu/Jaanee Dosth“. Thanks to the legendary comedian Allu Ramalingaiah‘s crooning “Nee Puttinarooju panduga subhadinam Jaaneeee”, at least I remember the name of the chimp that will be with Prasad Babu in the movie.
Most of my friends & cousins then thought that it was an outrageous idea by the film makers to spend so much money on a Chimp. But I was amazed to note that they were not alone to get carried away by the novelty quotient. The iconic Gemini Pictures imported a Chimp from the US way back in mid-50s for their film “Insaaniyat”, a remake of “Palletoori Pilla”.
