During the trailer launch, Anil shared how he needs to explore new avenues to keep getting work. “The first thing that it should make me nervous and feel that I can’t do this, I’ve not done something like this before. And then I think about how I want to give my best, because without doing my best (on-screen) otherwise how will I show my face to my friends. Will directors offer me work after seeing this or will I stop getting work altogether. I always have this nervousness and anxiety and hunger (to do good work) all the time and it pushes me,” Indian Express quoted him saying.

He went on to share that he feels it is getting difficult to excite the audience and added, “After working for so many years it has become very, very tricky, what should I do, what have I done that people have not already seen me do. It is very tough and every day it is becoming tougher to excite the audience with so much stuff happening around. One needs blessings, only hard work doesn’t (make the cut) anymore. The right people have to come together to make something remarkable today. The right people have to come together to make something remarkable today.”
