Post the film, her statute in Telugu Cinema and South Cinema has changed completely and she had been part of films like Baahubali series, Singam series and many biggies. She even did act in many movies that required her to be the main lead of the film.

Well, we have to wait till 25th of January to know answers as the movie is scheduled for a release on 25th of this month for Republic Day weekend.
