But one fine day, he came to me and announced that he actually acted in a film. I was astonished to see his screen presence and I promised him I would do a film for him which can bear me. So, here I am'
Merlapaka Gandhi said 'I was introduced to Sundeep thru a friend of mine. After he liked my story, I narrated it to Chota and Kiran as well and thatâ€™s how it happened. This is a full entertainer and is about the journey of Hyderabad to Tirupathi. Rakul played Prardhana's role brilliantly'
