Talking about the action sequence, Raj Nidimoru said, “When we spoke to her for the first time, we told her that it is not a glamorous role and it will have a lot of action sequences. She didn’t take even a second and said, ‘I am up for it. That is exactly what I want.’”
Krishna DK said, “She spent a lot of time working out, chiselling her body and increasing her fitness. In a way, she was getting trained for martial arts.”
Raj Nidimoru, while narrating a scene, said, “In a scene, she was supposed to punch a man. We were watching on the monitor. We really thought she was hitting the man for real. The punches came off really well on the screen.”
The director even compared Samantha Akkineni with Nagarjuna. He said, “There were days when Nagarjuna used to punch on screen, and we used to think that’s how action should be done. And now, we feel the same about Samantha. So, Sam, you are giving competition to the men out there.”
Samantha Akkineni couldn’t stop blushing and said, “Working with Raj-DK was the best experience. I used to be bruised and have cuts all over my body. It used to burn so bad when I would take a shower.”
