"With a platform like Prime Video, we get that. It's not pan India, it's across the world. I can't sit through even five minutes of horror.
When Vikram told me this one's a supernatural horror thriller, I knew exactly what that feeling was like. That's quite a challenge for me as an actor," he said. ALSO READ: After Allu Arjun, Naga Chaitanya fined for violating traffic rules: Report
