So, how much has Kangana exactly handled the film as a director?
To this the filmmaker answers, "But I think Kangana has done 20-25 per cent of the first half.

In the second half, she has even re-shot some scenes which I had done in a different way."
Krish also reveals about how his name was changed in the credits.
He says, "The first poster which bore the date, had my name. Then came the teaser, which had my name but not as Krish which I am known as in the industry including in the credit titles of my previous films. I was given a new name- Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi - which I never use."
