Everyone spoke about Vijay Sethupathi as the main highlight but for me, Trisha was the winner in the film with her standout performance."

Talking about the most difficult part of shooting Jaanu, Samantha Akkineni said, "The film is based on only two characters and everything needed to be in sync.

Generally, there are a lot of padding artists in other films but things are different in this film. So, it was quite a daunting task shooting for this film."
