At the trailer launch, Deverakonda was asked about the same, applauded for the same as he answered, "One can say that we did not have an option at that point. We had to wait and we were ready to do that. At one point of time, we even contemplated to divide the film into two timelines and shoot 10 years later. One portion of the film and its story will be the way it was shot and then we would shoot the rest 10 years later to cater to her health."

He added, "We (the director and himself) even joked about how we are not making the film now, so lets open an idli stand."

He concluded, "But on a serious note, we were ready to wait for her and we did as there is only one Aaradhya and that is Samantha."

Kushi is said to release on 1st September 2023.
