“It's not an election. It is cinema. And it is not KGF 2 vs Beast, but KGF 2 and Beast. It is unfair to make these comparisons. We have made a pan-India film, but he [Vijay] has done so much for the film. He is my senior and I'm sure fans will watch both films. I have a huge respect for Vijay sir and I am excited about watching Beast. I am sure fans of Thalapathy Vijay will definitely love KGF: Chapter 2. Let us watch both films and celebrate Indian cinema,” he said.
