Shruti Haasan, who is a part of both Telugu biggies, Waltair Veerayya and Veera Simha Reddy that clashed at the box office ahead of the festivals of Pongal and Makar Sankranti, said that “Honestly, I have been getting different responses for both films. People expected to see more of me in Veera Simha Reddy."
The actor added, "I’ve known Gopi (director Gopichand Malineni) for years and I am aware that this film is centered around Balayya garu; his fans are super happy. Likewise, Chiranjeevi sir’s fans are happy with Waltair Veerayya. Both these films were designed to be a celebration of their respective stardom, talent and careers."
