Speaking about his Bollywood debut he said, “Who does not want a Bollywood presence? As a performer everybody aims to be in Mumbai but God has been kind to me and I have a loyal audience who loves me in the Deccan region. And I love them even more to really shift base and start out afresh. This industry has given me a lot and I really enjoy what I do. Earlier also I got offers from Bollywood but I wasn’t sure how well my character would fit the story line. Comedy is always situational. So the Bollywood debut had to be with the right film. Bolo Hau is based on Hyderabadi culture and Gullu is 100 % Hyderabadi”.
