Krishna's directorial Pailwaan saw a worldwide release yesterday. Despite lacking enough promotions, the movie opened to a great response, drawing the crowd in large numbers to the theatres across the nation. Sudeep's daughter Saanvi and wife also watched his film yesterday.
According to FilmiBeat Kannada reports, Pailwaan got Saanvi extremely emotional. After watching the film, she hugged Sudeep and said, "I am proud of you papa". Apparently, she even teared up as she just couldn't watch her father getting beaten up in the climax. Meanwhile, Sudeep's wife Priya was overwhelmed by his performance in the film. The actor was extremely happy with his family's reaction.
We wouldn't be wrong to call Pailwaan, one of Sudeep's finest works, considering the hard work he has put into shaping his character. The preparations for the movie included months of strict diet paired with intense training.
In a previous interview,he stated that Pailwaan has been a life-changing experience for him. Reportedly, he did not use a body double for any of his scenes and performed all of them by himself.
He told Times of India, "I am happy I did this film because there are a lot of disciplinary changes that happened at a personal level. More than the change, it is the decision to do it that matters."
