Ace director Trivikram and comedian turned actor Sunil are close friends from the early days. They both shared a single room during their struggling period in Hyderabad. When Trivikram became a booming writer, he started penning some special and important characters for his friend Sunil which helped him to begin a triumphant comedy career in the industry.

Later, Trivikram turned director with Nuvve Nuvve and went to make super hit films (with star heroes Pawan Kalyan, Allu Arjun and Mahesh Babu) like Athadu, Jalsa, Khaleja, Julayi and Attarintiki Daredhi. Except in Julayi and Atharintiki Daredi, Sunil was given a chance in all the projects directed by Trivikram.

Sunil, who turned hero, would now like to know why his friend stopped casting in his movies. In reply to it, Trivikram answered: "Today he is in a good position and he is a star. After the super success of Maryada Ramanna and Poolarangadu as a lead actor, it would not be fair on my part to bring him down to play comedian roles. As a friend, I will always wish him to rise to the altitudes,"
