The plot of Waltair Veerayya revolves around a fisherman and his friend, egoistic ACP Vikram Sagar IPS, who stops Chiranjeevi’s Waltair Veerayya from smuggling goods.
Recently, Shruti Haasan, who stars in the lead role in Waltair Veerayya, said that her father Kamal Haasan hasn’t watched the film yet. "Sankranthi was amazing with two big film releases and I also made Pongal and served them to my friends and family in Mumbai, except my pet and my boyfriend Shantanu Hazarika as they don't like it,” the actor was quoted as saying in an interview with ETimes.
Interestingly, Shruti Haasan was also a part of Veera Simha Reddy, which also released on the same day as well. Speaking about her experience of working with Chiranjeevi and Nandamuri Balakrishna, Shruti Haasan said, "It's not about being comfortable. When one works with senior actors, one gets to learn a lot from them. And working with both Chiranjeevi sir and Balayya sir has been the most cherishing and learning experience for me."
