Making a Speech
1. Imagine that you are the guest on the movie’s 100 days function. Prepare the script to make a speech on that day by using the following hints.
Maya Bazar - a great movie - a mythological movie - acted NTR, ANR, SVR and Savithri - not happened - came into the mind - no roles of Pandavas and Kouravas - classical - directed by Pullaiah - produced by Vijaya movies - VFX technology - people chose - 100 years of Indian cinema - a golden jubilee movie.
A pleasant good morning to all the guests on and off the dais. First of all my humble pranam to the Director Sri Pullaiah garu, my next pranam to the producer Nagireddy Chakrapani garu and my last pranam to all stars of the movie. My dear fans of ANR & NTR today it is written in the history of Tollywood because the movie ‘Maya bazar’ created sensational hit by running in 200 theatres. The music of this movie is a great asset for the success. NTR who played the role of Lord Krishna deserves for it and audience received him as a real god. The next credit goes to the pair ANR & Savithri who have given eye feast to the fans and audience. S.V. Ranga Rao who played the role of Ghatotkacha gave stomachful fun with his timely actions. Coming to the play back singers Ghantasala, P. Susila, Leela and Madhava Peddi Sathyam gave melody songs under the music direction of Ghantasala. The other roles did their best jobs.
The photography with VFX technology was excellent by Marcus Bartley. It is beyond our expectations. The director took each and every step not to confuse the audience with his jimmics. Really this drama did not happen in Mahabharata just it is a notion got by the director and put on the paper. All credit goes to him. I hope that this movie will create unbroken records. Congrats to everyone who are a part of it. Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity.

Preparing ‘WH’ Questions
1. Read the following passage carefully focusing on the underlined parts.
A woman was visiting Hyderabad for the first time. She wanted to see the Charminar. Unfortunately, she could not find it, so she asked a police officer for directions. 'Excuse me officer, how do I get to the Charminar'? The officer replied ‘Wait here at this bus stop for the number 65 bus’. It will take you right there’. She thanked the officer and drove off’. Three hours later the police officer returned to the same area, and sure enough, the woman was still waiting at the same bus stop. The officer got out of his car and said, ‘Excuse me, but to get to the Charminar, I said to wait here for the number 65 bus. That was three hours ago. Why are you still waiting’? The woman replied, ‘Don’t worry, officer, it won’t be long now. The 58th bus just went by’.
Now, frame ‘WH’ questions to get the underlined parts in the passage as answers.
i) What was the woman visiting for the first time?
ii) What did the woman want to see?
iii) What did the woman ask for?
iv) Where was the woman waiting?
v) Which bus did just go by?
2. Read the following passage carefully focusing on the underlined parts.
Maya Bazaar is another film that brought fame to Savithri. She played the role of Sasirekha. Recollecting the 16 - annas Telugu lass clad in parikini, in the song allibilli ammayiki…. Reminds us of the rich Telugu culture of youngsters. In the final part of the film Savithri plays the role of maya (not real) Sasirekha (Ghatotkacha in disguise). She walks in a masculine manner imitating the legendary S.V. Ranga Rao acting as Ghatotkacha in the film to perception.
The theatre rocks with laughter when Lakshmana Kumara (Relangi) is teased by maya Sasirekha. She switches from the feminine to the masculine in the twinkling of an eye and needless to say, a female artiste displaying masculine demon qualities with a club in hand has no parallel.
Now frame ‘WH’ questions to get the underlined parts in the passage as answers.
i) What is the name of the movie?
ii) Which role was played by Savithri?
iii) What is it that reminds us the Telugu culture?
iv) Who played the role of Ghatotkacha?
