Jr NTR had opened up on the topic at the pre-release event of Kalyan Ram’s film, Amigo, saying, “Sometimes, when we’re working on a film, there isn’t much information to share. We can’t keep sharing updates on a daily or hourly basis. As much as I understand your excitement and the urge, sometimes all of this leads to a lot of pressure on the producer as well as the filmmaker. Due to the pressure, sometimes we end up sharing an update that doesn’t have much value which upsets the fans even more.”
