Vijay Devarakonda said that superstars Rajinikanth and Chiranjeevi are beyond hits and flops. "Rajinikanth sir gave 5-6 back to back flops. But he came back again with a blockbuster like Jailer. Then we should shut up and watch,' said Vijay.
Talking about Chiranjeevi, he said, “Chiranjeevi may have 6-7 flops back to back. But if the right director gets his energy, he will come back with a sensation like he did this Sankranti. Chiru sir changed the industry. When he came, the action, dance and performance there changed completely. He inspired many people to enter the industry.”
Vijay Deverakonda said that actors should not be judged on the basis of hits and flops. He said that they should be respected for inspiring many people to enter the industry so that everyone can enjoy their films. He said that he feels it is disrespectful to make comments on senior actors.

The trailer took the audiences into the heartwarming world of Aaradhya and Viplav who create a relatable but adorable world of romance and take us along in their journey of love.
