In an interview, Ram Pothineni revealed about his character and the reason why he chose the film. He said, “I enjoyed playing a dual role in RED and I am surprised at how people are connecting with my portrayal of the bad boy in the film. The reason I signed the film was that it can’t be categorised into a thriller solely. Along with being an intriguing thriller, it also has a beautiful family track and a well-written story. The dialogues of the film are massy and will be remembered for a long time. You can take your father, mother, grandparents, boyfriend/girlfriend to the theatre and everybody would love it.”
On the prep, the iSmart Shankar actor spoke about how he had to put on a lot of weight to look the part for the film. He said, “In my earlier film, I had to look lean as that was the demand of the character. But in RED, I had to switch between the two roles so I had to put on seven kgs and I am sure that the hard work will pay off when people would see me o screen.”
