Rumours were rift that the director even approached the Roohi actor for Vijay’s next film, Jana Gana Mana (JGM). Reacting to this, he said, “Yes, we had, but she didn’t have dates. But I definitely want to work with her.”

While opening up about working with Ananya Panday, Jagannadh termed it as ‘amazing’, adding, “She is a firebrand, very active and she is good in confrontational scenes with the hero.” He further added that they have been working on the film for the ‘last two, two and a half years’, and she has changed a lot. “Every three to four months I see a different Ananya. The last song I shot with her, she is perfect now,” he said.
