Recalling an incident, Chiranjeevi shared that he was once humiliated in the early days of his career.

Chiranjeevi went on to narrate the journey of his success to Vijay. He even credited his success to his favourite god, Lord Hanuman. Chiranjeevi recounted, 'That imagination didn't happen in a single day. I used to see some images in my mind all the time. I used to act in dramas in school and college, for which I won the best actor award. People used to recognise me and praise me. I used to feel very proud. This recognition gave me a desire. I learned that celebrities get a lot of attention. I continued to work towards my dream and prayed to my favourite God, Lord Hanuman. As I believed in myself, I made it big in the industry. I knew that I would achieve such a status.'
