"Ghazi is one of the films that I am really very proud of because there was a lot of resistance when I was trying to make the film". It is a submarine war film. There is no love story, song dance sequence that we have in regular Telugu films. We went ahead and did it.

Bollywood films were next to absent from the winners list at the 65th National Film Awards. Taking to Twitter, a proud Rana adds, "The most satisfying journeys and destinations I have had by being part of telling these fantastic stories".
