Director Rahul Sankrityan's Shyam Singha Roy, which was released in theatres on December 24, received a lot of love from the audience and critics. The film, which talks about reincarnation and the system of devadasis in Bengal, stars Nani, Sai Pallavi, and Krithi Shetty in lead roles.
Speaking at an event after the release, Nani said, "No one is saying in two lines that the movie is good. They are writing big essays like love letters. This feels like a real big success for us. Audiences are proving every time that they will support a good movie under any circumstances. As long as you support me, I will work hard to give you good movies. Shyam Singha Roy is a big film with big casting and so it is a big responsibility on Rahul. Not many people in the industry believed him. But everyone's predictions proved wrong. There are many more to come. Everyone has worked so hard to make the film a big success. I did several love stories. But I didn’t have a classic love story. Now, I can say that Shyam Singha Roy will remain to be a memorable love story in my career.”
