"We had watched Arjun Reddy together and she loved the director's [Sandeep Reddy Vanga] work and felt that the character had potential. And if we were able to get it right, it'd be a very special character in my life. So, Mira was very happy when she watched the film," the actor added.

"Right now, I am overwhelmed and thankful. And there's no better feeling than getting love for a film, and a character, which is extremely flawed and probably one of the most dangerous characters to play for an actor since he is nothing like me. He isn't necessarily a character who you would love. But the success and the fact that the film has touched a chord with the audience, goes on to show the moviegoers' maturity," he further said.
