The 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, the Buddhist spiritual leader, complimented producer K.

Rajasekhar produced the movie on Dharmapatha Creations, in Telugu and Hindi.
Further, felicitating the producer, State Minister Aanam RamNarayan Reddy said, “A message oriented movie like ‘Gautham Buddha’ will inspire the society and a Nandi Award is a feather in its cap,” during his speech in the annual day function of Andhra Music Academy.
