Mega hero Sai Dharam Tej about his intelligent movie said it is the first fully commercial movie in his career. He said he liked the story very much while saying working under VV Vinayak's direction was his fortune and that too after 4 flops. Tej said the movie conveys an underlying message about gratitude around which the story revolves. He thanked hero Balakrishna for making time to attend the teaser launch and Bahubali Prabhas for sparing time for its audio launch despite their busy schedules. While praising Balakrishna's humbleness, he said, 'young actors have so much to learn from Balakrishna'.
