The speech delivered by Sirivennela Sitharama Sastry at the pre-release event of 'Antariksham 9000 KM' is like a slap on the face of Directors who are still relying on commercial potboilers. In a way, It's like mocking the scenes featuring Balakrishna in 'Palnati Brahmanaidu' and 'Legend'. 'Whether path-breaking films brought the change in audience or the audience made directors come up with new-age films? This is a million dollar question! Director Sankalp Reddy has been taking Telugu Cinema to a whole new level. Even Krish deserves all the praise for making such movies. We are bored of watching scenes depicting earthquake happen just with the landing of hero's foot on the ground and train stop all of a sudden with Hero's vigil. Too much violence in the fights have now become comedy,' he said.
The Lyricist feels Telugu Audience have been changing because of films like 'Ghazi' and 'Antariksham'. He added, 'Sankalp Reddy took us into the Ocean with 'Ghazi'. He is now taking us to the space. I appreciate him for doing so'.

'Antariksham 9000 KM' hits the screens on December 21st. This space drama stars Varun Tej, Aditi Rao Hydari and Lavanya Tripathi in lead roles.
