He is one of the very few directors who has tickled that part in me. It is not about the films that he does with me but in general also when we discuss films,” he said.
The 38-year-old actor further added, "He has been a close friend in my life. So, when I discuss scripts, he is this person in my life who pushes me to get out of my comfort zone. And being part of RRR has opened up a lot of doors for me as an actor. I am happy to have accepted it.”
