Nani said that he loved that trailer and believes that the soul is intact.

The Shyam Singha Roy actor further revealed that he hasn't spoken to Shahid yet but was constantly in touch with director Gowtam Tinnanuri. Nani said that Gowtam often called him to give an update about how things are going with the Hindi release.
