The Pailwaan film star also heaped praises on Ram Charan for making this film. “People should have a son like Ram Charan. He made his father’s dream come true to such an extent,” he added.

Chiranjeevi had been wanting to make this film for a long time now. However, the project went into cold storage due to budget constraints at the time. It is said that this film has been made on a budget of Rs 200 crore.


Sudeep also said he feels happy when he gets offers from other parts of the country. “We all have our platforms. But stepping out of that and coming here and doing something because somebody else needs you; submitting to someone else’s dream is much more fulfilling than what we dream for ourselves. The same thing goes for Dabangg 3 also,” the actor stated.

Also, actor Ravi Kishan who plays a pivotal part in the multi-starrer spoke about his experience of working on the sets of the Surender Reddy directorial. “I had never thought I would get much love from south films. I just finished a Tamil film with Vijay Sethupathi sir, we wrapped it up two days ago. So this has been a lovely journey. It feels great to work with these guys, they are a school (pointing towards Chiranjeevi). Even standing behind them feels like I will now get moksha,” the actor stated.

The lead actor of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Chiranjeevi also talked about his role in the film. The actor said, “It is an untold story of an unsung hero, which I wanted to tell to everyone pan India. The story has been with me for more than a decade, but then I didn’t have the budget. Finally, it is happening, I am very happy.”

“When I was talking to my director, he said there is this role and if we can get Amitabh Bachchan for it, nothing will be like it. So I called Amitabh sir and told him about the role. He said, because you have called, I will do it. He immediately said yes. He is my real-life mentor. I feel there is only one megastar, and he is Amitabh Bachchan.


Working with him was an amazing experience and I am thankful to him,” said Chiranjeevi on being asked about his experience of working with Bachchan. When he was asked about his long disappearance, the actor reasoned, “I don’t know why this kind of a gap had come, but I didn’t get the right kind of content to do a film.”
