He has said that he ends up watching the film on the OTT platform when he streams the film to watch just a scene. "As and when I get on to OTT to watch a scene of KGF, I end up watching the whole film. I have never seen that much cinematic understanding in a long time. After Mani Ratnam, I am seeing this in Prashanth Neel," he is quoted as saying by Indian Express.

Adding further, he reveals about losing an opportunity to meet him. He said, "While I was shooting for Mohanlal-Priyadarshan's Marakkar, Prashanth was there in Hyderabad shooting for KGF. But yeah, I am looking forward to meeting him soon,"

Tirru is a big name in the film industry who has worked in all the leading languages of the country that include Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi movies. He has cranked the camera for over 30 films.

As a result, Tirru's comparison has a lot of weight.
