A) No, I was comfortable while portraying this role. Moreover, the visually challenged character will last for only forty minutes in the film.
Q) Whose decision was it to choose Veligonda Srinivas as the director?
A) After listening to his complete narration, I felt that he should only direct this film. As I said, the film has a lot of twists and turns, and if he directs it, the same feel and emotions will reflect on the screen. So I insisted him to direct the movie.

Q) How far will the special premiers help the film?
