Talking about him, he said, “He’s a child at heart. Cinema is like a toy to him and I still remember how eager Rajamouli was to start shooting Baahubali. One day, he narrated the script of Baahubali and I was wondering what he wanted me to do. Then he said, It’s a small role and I agree that it is not a role that you should be doing. Neither is it something where you act and I improvise. Probably I just want you to be part of my film. That’s the best part about him. There’s so much to learn from his passion for cinema and family. We all either get carried with our success or failure, but every time I see Rajamouli, I learn how to be grounded. I’ve never met such a wonderful family like Rajamouli’s and you feel like doing anything for them” he shared.
