He revealed in a recent interview that he predicted that 'Sye Raa' will not be successful even before its release when it was shown to him. He added that he liked the film very much and was not sure about its verdict and he reportedly said that even to Chiranjeevi.
He says that films on Independence don't strike a chord with youngsters as the freedom struggle happened generations back. He added that fantasy films like 'Baahubali' and Indo-Pak war films will score big at the box-office as it is what is relevant nowadays.
As Giri Babu said, 'Sye Raa' ended its theatrical run with losses despite getting positive reviews from all over.
