"She is so adorable. She blew everyone's mind on set - Arha. Firstly, she doesn't speak a word of English. She only speaks Telugu. She speaks Telugu better than most adults in Hyderabad speak the language. It is so pure. And she was absolutely brilliant - I remember the first day after the shoot. I tweeted that this is a superstar right here. And she doesn't even need a father, she is going to make it anyway. Because she is born to be a superstar," stated Samantha Ruth Prabhu.

"From the very second day of the shoot, she shot from 9 to 9 in the night. There were no complaints. She had long dialogues and there were like 200 people on set. She wasn't scared. She had so much confidence. It was lovely to watch her perform. And I think that she is going to make an incredible mark in the film," added the actress.
