Movie team tried to make sure that she acted in the film by any means. They did not care for any objections, she said to escape and even offered a record amount like Never Before and probably, Ever After.
The actress had big plans as a politician but she couldn't find a right route to move forward with her plans. She had to wait for long time to get out of her house as she did not play any part in political scenario in 2018 elections.
She needed something like Sarileru Neekevvaru film to let everyone know that she is still around and if her role makes an impact, she wants to continue doing some films and build good amount of popularity in Telangana again by connecting with millennials.
She did not agree to the offer that SLN team came up with the first time but she gladly agreed after getting a remuneration of Rs. 1. 5 crores and a guarantee that her character will be highly important in the movie.
Anil Ravipudi the director wanted to fix Vijayashanthi in this film, as only, she can carry a role like this with Mahesh Babu in the frame. Movie is releasing on 11th January, 2020 all over.
