Dulquer Salmaan Post
Taking to social media to express his gratitude to the Telugu audience, he wrote: "To the wonderful Telugu audience, my first ever film that was dubbed in Telugu and released was 'OK Bangaram'. Thanks to Mani sir, you all took a chance on me and gave me immense love in my first outing.
"Then, Nagi and Vyjayanthi gave me the opportunity to play Gemini in 'Mahanati' and even though it had grey shades, the love and respect I got for the role and film was unlike anything I expected. 'Ammadi' became a permanent part of my life wherever I went. 'Kannulu Kannulu Dochayente' and 'Kurup' were dubbed films, yet the love you gave to those films is something I'll never forget.'

The film is a combined effort of so many artistes and talents and crew and it became as beautiful as it is because of everyone involved. I cried on the day of the release because I was so overwhelmed with the film and how people were accepting the film."
Mrunal Thakur's Instagram Post
Thanking everyone, Mrunal wrote "My dear Audience, When I signed the film. I knew it was a special film. I have said time and again that when my director narrated the script I told him that I will do this film without a doubt or thinking it over. I remember it so peculiarly that I flew down to hear the narration of Sitaraman when I was shooting in Chandigarh. I sat down and within minutes I was mesmerised. I say this today because that’s how I have been accepted by the Telugu audiences. They embraced me and within days of the film releasing, have showered me with so much love in person and on social media."
