What do you think is the best aspect about Loukyam?
The main reason why I draw a comparison between Loukyam and Attarintiki Daaredhi is because- Pawan got a huge break with it and in the same way I would get for this. I am extremely confident about the story. I was told only the hero introduction scene which made me very impressed and sign up for the film. Character actors like Brahmi, Prudhvi, Chandramohan also have good roles and ample amount of scope.

He made a significant contribution to the story. Kona garu’s expertise became crucial for the film. I feel extremely happy to have associated with him.

I look at film as a film always and hence I did not feel much difference.

Saahasam has give me complete satisfaction as an actor. My overseas market has improved with it. Okadunnadu lacked commercial punch but still it was a good film.
