All the producers, directors and writers have spoken about how they cannot see me or imagine me in a negative role anymore.

I remember I started shooting for two films before Covid-19, including Acharya. And they had to rework a little bit on a few scenes."

He further said, "Like in the action sequences, Chiranjeevi sir was not sure if hitting me will be accepted by people. So yes, people are thinking a lot about it.

Even the scripts that are coming my way are all positive roles. So, there is a second-innings on its way."
