Earlier speaking at the pre-release event of his brother Kalyan Ram’s film Amigos, Jr.NTR requested his fans to not keep asking for updates and said, “Sometimes, when we’re working on a film, there isn’t much information to share. We can’t keep sharing updates on a daily or hourly basis. As much as I understand your excitement and the urge, sometimes all of this leads to a lot of pressure on the producer as well as the filmmaker. Due to the pressure, sometimes we end up sharing an update which doesn’t have much value, which upsets the fans even more.”

Jr. NTR further added that a lot of actors face a similar kind of pressure, which isn't healthy and said, “If there’s an update, we will share it with the fans first even before we share it with our wife at home. This is only because we understand how important you are all. Only if there’s an update worth sharing, we will share it first with you all.”
