Speaking about his experience of working on the film, Vincent had recently said, “I am part of the astronaut team that heads to space. For someone who was been part of the film, watching the trailer itself was a different experience for me. The team has put in a lot of effort. Almost 60 per cent of the film showcases what happens in space. So, we had to have that kind of set and equipment to make sure the movie looks convincing. We have tried and shown the zero-gravity atmosphere inside the spaceship and the latest technology that goes into all of this. I think there was nothing lacking in the film.”

The movie has been conceived by Sundar anna much before Baahubali but things have fallen in place only now. I will have to bulk my body , almost double. Since the movie is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, I don’t mind allocating almost one year and a half for the same. Also, it will be released in two parts. From the sets to the creative elements, most of the props are almost ready. I have to get trained in various aspects for the film, which will be taking place in Hyderabad.”
