In an interview with a leading daily, Sudeep revealed that he was excited to be paired against Salman Khan in the movie. The actor added that he found it difficult to perform action stunts with Salman, considering Khan’s excellence in action movies.
''I found it very difficult to kick him in his heart during a scene, I found it hard," he revealed. "Salman told me ‘Buddy, kick me!’ The respect I had for me, I couldn’t kick him. Then we did it differently because I just couldn’t. I failed. I have now realised why people in the South found it difficult to kick me,'' he added.
