Talking about the her, in an exclusive interview to Filmfare, Manoj said she’s not just good but superlative. He said, “So the second time I was watching it, I realised that this girl is not only very good, she is superlative in the series. The kind of focus, the intensity, the graph she has maintained, the research she has done… I know she’s done the research because Raj and DK were getting all the videos and passing off to Samantha to work on it. They were showing me all the martial art classes she was going to. I knew she was all prepared and getting into it. I knew that she is a big star.”
