I'd met Meenakshi in Mumbai. We attended acting workshops together. She is a very talented and hardworking actress. I thank producers Ravi Shastri and Harish for this opportunity. Every film of mine should offer something new and this movie will do that".

We have entered a new decade in 2020 and there will be emphasis only on concept oriented films henceforth. So, we have opted for this script. Sushanth is a perfect choice for this movie. Meenakshi is multi-talented. She is very apt for the heroine's role. Darshan has brilliant technical knowledge. We are hopeful of a big blockbuster".
