Mahesh Babu accepted Anil Ravipudi's story over Sukumar's script and even though it lead to a fall out with the Rangasthalam director, he believed in commercial voice of Anil.
The young director said that he will give a hit film for Sankranthi as gift to Mahesh. He praised him as a Super star on screen and off the screen too.
He also said that Vishaka Utsav has been lucky for his F2 team and it will be for Sarileru Neekevvaru also. He shared that Mahesh's comedy timing with Rajendra Prasad throughout the film, will be fun for audiences.
He thanked RP for not feeling his demands as torture while he understands, he did push him too much. He thanked DSP for the audio and said that the composer became the first judge for this film.
He thanked him for the suggestions and promised to fans that Mahesh pulled off sentiment, dance and comedy in this film like he did not in his recent movies. He also said that Vijayashanthi, Prakash Raj and Sangeetha are a big help to the emotional core of the film.
