“I’m happy to be associated with Dil Raju. And one can imagine the scale of the film and the making when producer like Dil Raju come forward rendering support.

As I was thinking about who has the right sensibility to pull off the role, everyone suggested me to cast Samantha. She has been very selective about her roles.
