On Bollywood vs South Industry
During the press conference, Salman told Chiranjeevi, "Your films are being accepted here but our films aren't accepted there." To which Chiranjeevi promptly added, "We are here to take you. This is one of the reasons why I asked Sallu Bhai to come through in this film."
Salman Khan did not charge single rupee for Godfather
At the trailer launch, Chiranjeevi shared, "When my producers went to hand over one big cheque to Sallu Bhai. They had taken the route of managers. The manager went inside and came out at a faster speed. He advised them to not take the risk of paying Salman, as he said - 'Do the producers want to buy my love and affection for Chiranjeevi Garu.' Ram Charan and I are indebted to Sallu Bhai for life".

He said I want to do this. He said I want to be with you and I want to be with Venky in the same frame. I thought he was just kidding. I told him we will talk about it tomorrow. Tomorrow, he got his costume, and he was there before us. I said 'What are you doing here?' He said 'I want to be here. I said, 'we love you and we want you to be here. But is it okay for you to be here?' He said yeah. That's how he came into the film and we had a great time shooting."
