ANUSHKA’S WORDS ABOUT HER CO-STARS:
Nagarjuna: He made me completely comfortable. He goes out of his way to pull you out. I learnt the ‘believe in yourself’ attitude from him. He asked me to come to set and observe how shooting is going on even when shots involving me were not being shot. I used to be there on location everyday. It helped me a lot to understand what teamwork is all about.
Sumanth: He is very silent and quite. He doesn’t talk very much. He has got amazing sense of humor. I think lot of people doesn’t know about that part of him because he is always quite.
Ravi Teja: He is a very dedicated actor. His mind is always on the work. He is very chilled, at the same time very focused. It’s very comfortable for me to work with such people.
Vishnu: We are of same age group. We could relate very easily on certain things. If you see Asthram film, you would notice such chemistry between us. He is always high on sets and I don’t know how he manages such energy levels all the time. When we work with him, he inflicts that energy to you automatically.
Gopichand: He is a perfect gentleman and a complete professional. Our pair looks superb on screen as both of us are tall and the on-screen chemistry in the film has been worked out well.
