Meanwhile, at the promotional event ahead of the film's release Baahubali director Vijayendra Prasad, was all praises for Kangana. Speaking at the event, writer Vijayendra Prasad had said, "Kangana is initially sceptical about doing the film because she does not know about Jayalalithaa. I told her to be herself and it is enough. She immediately accepted. I am sure she will be on the Top Chair someday."

Director AL Vijay further added," Kangana ji lived in this character. The movie is all about Kangana ji and Jaya ji's life. She has done complete justice to the movie. Aravind Swamy is the pillar of the film. I thank the entire team for staying a strong support to the film in three years of the pandemic."
