He quickly added that Pawan Kalyan has now dedicated himself towards serving other people. This would also mean that he has less time allocated for shooting. SS Rajamouli added that since Pawan Kalyan is taking more time to make a film, it is not a feasible option to direct him.

SS Rajamouli was also compared to Pawan Kalyan for his social service efforts in society. However, the director added that they are both far from each other. SS Rajamouli hilariously added that Pawan Kalyan might get a 100/100 while he will end up with probably just 0.5 percentage.
