“I know how she works, and she is very choosy. I didn't give her a script first, rather I gave her a synopsis. I know her for a long time now, but that does not mean she'll just accept it if I offer her a script," the director said.

He continued that Sai Pallavi looked for characters when she was approached with the film, so when she read the synopsis and the screenplay, the actress responded positively. She asked the director to meet her where she cleared her doubts and came on board.
