In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, DQ also spoke about his sizzling chemistry with Mrunal Thakur in the film.

“Seetha Ramam is a classic love story. I have heard the script across all industries but this is one of a kind. I think from the time of hearing the script and taking it to magical times, we have created some very memorable moments. Everytime Days on the sets, it was like a happy moment as an actor,” said Dulquer Salmaan on his beautiful journey to Sita Ramam.
DQ and Mrinal left no stone unturned to promote the film. He was literally living a suitcase life.

When Dulquer was asked whether he feels the burden of hope being the son of a superstar or is nervous ahead of the release of his film, he replied, “I think everyone is nervous but sometimes, you also feel good about the film as if there is a good excitement.
