The trailer of much-awaited Telugu film, Koratala Siva's Janatha Garage, was released on 12 August.
The launch event was attended by the main cast of the film - including Jr NTR, Unni Mukundan and Nithya Menen.
Unni Mukundan, who is making his Telugu debut with Janatha Garage may have had a blink-and-miss scene in the trailer. But the actor wowed the crowd at the event with his speech in Telugu.
He also delivered a dialogue from his co-star Jr NTR's film Aadi as a tribute to their friendship. During the event, he thanked Koratala Siva and Jr NTR for giving him the opportunity to work opposite Mohanlal in Janatha Garage.

While Telugu film aficionados have appreciated Unni's performance after the trailer, many fans referred to him as Uni instead of Unni on their social media tributes.
The actor took to Twitter to explain the meaning of his name:
It's not pronounced as UNI... it's UNNI... Unn nee— Unni Mukundan (@Iamunnimukundan) August 12, 2016
Unni Means Baby In Malayalam.
Hope all is clear. Gettin 2 many messages about this 😊
Unni has also bagged his second Telugu project. He will be seen next in Bhagmati opposite Anushka Shetty. It looks like the 'Muscle-Aliyan' of Malayalam cinema has made his transition into the 'Baby' of Telugu cinema with absolute ease.
