Chiranjeevi said that Allu Aravind spends any amount of money for producing a film, but when it comes to promotion and publicity, he does not open his purse strings.
The comments were undoubtedly made in a lighter vein, but it came as a surprise for many of the people who were present on the occasion.

Allu makes Jalsa at poor fans’ expense! 2008/4/2 14:01:01 The long awaited film ‘Jalsa’ finally hit the screen today. The film opened at over 1000 screens. Fans waited eagerly for hours together to buy a ticket and watch their hero.
But the film failed to live up to the expectations of the fans. Pawan Kalyan’s acting is good and he has also done a good job in the fight scenes and also comedy scenes. But the story and screenplay by Trivikram Srinivas left much to be desired. The film also tests the patience of the audience at some times.
The final verdict is that the film is just an average entertainer. The film has not made Pawan Kalyan fans happy and not every one of them is making Jalsa. But producer Allu Aravind is making ‘Jalsa’ as he has ensured that the openings will break records due to the massive hype and he will recover his investment and also make a neat profit. So if there is anyone who is making Jalsa now, it is only Allu Aravind.

Allu Aravind promises bigger film than ‘Jalsa’ 2008/4/15 12:49:10 Allu Aravind is very happy to have made a big impact with his film ‘Jalsa’. He is now raring to begin work on another big film. Jalsa stood at the ninth place in the top 10 movies of the week in the world in Mejo ratings.
Aravind says that this has proved the stamina of Telugu films to the world. Allu Aravind now wants to make a film much bigger than Jalsa. It is not clear if he will make the film with son Allu Arjun in the lead or with Ram Charan. Some people close to him say that Allu Aravind wants to make a film starring Allu Arjun and Ram Charan together. This would surely be a casting coup of sorts.

Brahmanandam fails in ‘Jalsa’ 2008/4/2 13:32:29 A lot of hype was generated about the Pawan kalian starrer ‘Jalsa’. There were some selective leaks that claimed that comedian Brahmanandam had done a fantastic job in Jalsa. The leaks also claimed that his action in the film will be remembered by the people for ‘years to come’!
But his action came as a big disappointment to everyone. His entry was received with loud whistles and cheer but he failed to deliver the goods. He plays a Head constable who is put on duty to guard Ileana from Pawan kalian. All he does in his role is to get beaten black and blue time and again at the hands of Pawan Kalyan.
This is supposed to be a big comedy! Many were seen commenting that Sunil did a better job than Brahmanandam in the film.
