Further he added that Nayanthara called RJ Balaji and told him that she went through fasting when she did the role of Seetha in Rama Rajjiyam. “This film is not a satire on devotional films. I myself a big devotee of many gods of various religions. This is a pure devotional film and Nayanthara is going to essay a role proper “Amman”.” As we are going to start the schedule soon our entire crew has converted into Vegetarian and She particularly called me and said that she went through fasting while doing “Ramarajiyam” and asked our team to do the same.” said RJ Balaji in the interview.
