In an interview to Film Companion, Ram Charan said, “He didn’t even charge for his flight tickets. We couldn’t push him after a point.” Chiranjeevi added, “That is a great thing. That way, Mr Bachchan didn’t even allow me to keep a private jet for his travel. I asked him about his accommodation and he said that he’s doing it for our friendship. We know each other for a long time. That way we are so lucky to have him on board.”
