"It is not a typical ambitious clichéd kind of film. It is a film of a different kind. Today when we see the mammoth response it is overwhelming. Very satisfying," he told NDTV.
"There were questions that were raised, comparisons of returns and the figures these films touched. But I don't take that as a pressure. I don't think any film can be compared. RRR has a brand called Rajamouli. KGF 2 had a brand called KGF. Vikrant Rona came without a brand - and only my familiar face. So I can't even say I am 'pan India.' Except (the film) Eega. I have not released anything that big for me to say I am coming in as a brand,” he added in the interview.
