Earlier while praising Deverakonda, Ananya had said, “I have yet to meet someone so grounded and humble despite being such a huge star. He is kind and soft-spoken.”
Talking about her character, Panday had shared, “My character is quite like the real me. I think young girls will be able to relate to her cute, funny and charming personality. I am working on my Telugu too, learning a few words every day on the set. I will try to dub for myself in as many languages as possible.”
