He stated, "I am very happy to play alongside Kamal Hassan. It is a story that happened a few centuries ago. My role is not just restricted to a scene or a guest appearance like a flash on the screen. It is a full-length role. Moreover, my role is very important in the development of the story. I can't reveal more details now. We are all aware that Kamal Hassan always wants to deliver a breakthrough performance. Every artiste can and should learn so many things from him."
He added, "The Telugu film industry should also have good subjects very different from routine films. I am ready to do any kind of role, if the writer or director brings me a story that impresses me. But these days, no writers are able to impress artistes with gripping subjects. They bring the same old subjects. I will attend the regular shooting of Marmayogi in November. Story discussions are also in progress for a film with Krish of Gamyam fame. After these films, I have agreed to act in a film that Srinu Vaitla will be directing."
