Vijay, who played a medical surgeon in Arjun Reddy, had earlier said in an interview to IANS that the response the film received was more than they had expected. "We knew we were doing something never done before, at least not in Telugu cinema. We were sure we'd make some kind of an impact. It went much further than we expected," IANS quoted the actor as saying.
