Rajkummar Rao shares BTS video from Srikanth

Taking to his Instagram handle, Rajkummar shared a video, which includes a glimpse from the trailer launch of the movie. In the video he says: "Koshish yahi thi ki mai jab set par aaun to mai Srikanth hun. Jab tak pack up na ho mai Srikanth hi rahun. Ham ek lens pehente the aankh me, jaise hi wo lagta tha mai Srikanth ho jata tha. Fir set pe koi aata tha, nahi aata tha mujhe pata nahi hota tha. But I think that's the only way I could do this part. (The effort was that whenever I came on the set, I became Srikanth. That till pack up, I remain as Srikanth. I used to wear a lens in my eyes, as soon as I wore them, I would become Srikanth.)"
