Sound bite: Simhaasanam is loosely inspired by Sivaji Ganeshan’s “Utthama Putran”. But Tripuraneni Maharathi toned down the cruelty element in the crown prince’s character in the Telugu Version.
Simhaasanam was released again in the same theatre in Vijayawada in April 1988. This is really fascinating to see a old movie release in this prestigious theatre especially during the highly competitive era where many exhibitors would have been wanting to release their movies here. Simhaasanam collected more than 13 lakhs at Raj 70mm during its initial release in 1986.
Got to know today that ” Panchi Bhanoo Uditi Phiroon” from ” Chori Chori” is the song that inspired music composer Vedhaa to come up with this beautiful song from “Nenu Manishine”. Thanks to Saregama’s Caravan.
Note: In Eluru, the revenues were record among all Krishna films only.
