My look in the film is quite different. The director, Boyapati sir, went through my looks from each and every one of my previous films, and he made sure that I do something different and unique in this film, yet still stick to the character I am playing. So it was a big challenge for him, but he wanted to give a complete makeover and freshness to my character, he has worked very hard and gone into every single detail to design this look for me, and I really I am waiting for the release of the film. , I can’t wait for the audience to see our labor of love. It’s a Boyapati sir film, so you know it’s going to be a theater film, and there’s going to be a lot of action, drama and fun. It’s a super exciting story.”

Bollywood actor Salman Khan on Friday (January 21) released a trailer of the song which left everyone speechless and created panic on social media.
I had to pinch myself that I am being a part of a romantic song with Salman sir. This is a beautiful song. Guru Randhawa and Iulia Vantur have given their melodious voice to this romantic tune. I am sure that this song will be liked by those who are going to listen and watch it. it was lovely. I mean he is an amazing person and he has been in this industry for over 30 plus years so it feels like a blessing that you know to work with him, to work with guru like pragya to work together It was a wonderful team and I am happy to be a part of this song. We mainly shot for the song and there were some dialogues which I shot with Salman sir. But due to the huge interest of the film, it was not retained. Our track was not going well with the story and this has been clarified many times by Salman sir in the past as well. But my favorite part from the film is the song that is coming out right now so it is the best thing that can happen so I am really happy and really grateful. ,

Acting after that was a natural progression. But going from law to modeling, was not something I thought much about. I was getting offers and I was taking them, but after I finished law school I realized it was not my passion. I wanted to do more modeling and acting.”
