While talking to Hindustan Times, SS Rajamouli said, "I  needed an actress who can stand her ground between Jr NT Rama Rao and Ram Charan, both of whom are extremely talented actors. She can be innocent, vulnerable yet be extremely resilient. That is the reason I went for her."

Alia Bhatt has begun preparing for her role in the epic drama and was supposed to begin the shoot this month before the coronavirus pandemic. Reacting about the same, Rajamouli said "The shoot with Alia which was supposed to happen this month got canceled due to the pandemic. We need to re-work the dates and schedules. I am looking forward to working with her."

As fans await the epic drama to unveil on the big screen, it is said that the makers are planning to push the release date of teh film to the summer of 2021. Since the work on the film has been stalled due to coronavirus outbreak, the film might release a little later next year. On the other hand, when asked about his cast ensemble, Rajamouli said, "In a large-scale film it is very important that there is a perfect balance between art and commerce. One cannot be sacrificed for the sake of the other. Yes, it is also very good that their star status helps the pan India appeal."
