If there is one man who has come out unscathed in DEPARTMENT, it is Rana Daggubati. Playing a no-nonsense cop, he has managed to move ahead from his DUM MAARO DUM days and has come across as a central protagonist in the Ram Gopal Varma affair.

Even as he is busy fetching all the appreciation, Rana goes on to credit his director Ram Gopal Varma for the results that are visible on screen. He says, "Ramu sir was pretty much hands on with the script and knew exactly what was required from each of his actors. He briefed me about every little detail related to the script and the character. Also, he gave me ample time to prepare. That helped."

Moreover, working with stalwarts like Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt helped him as well.

"I have grown up watching these veterans act and obviously there was a lot to learn from them. As can be seen, I have my scenes divided between the two. I was practically working with at least one of them every day," he says.

For someone who has idolised Dutt since childhood and has also worked with Bachchan scion in his very first Hindi film, Rana was happy to share screen space with the duo.

"Sanjay Dutt is a huge superstar down south. I still get goose bumps when I watch VAASTAV. On the other hand Abhishek was my first co-star with DUM MAARO DUM. How can I forget that? After Abhishek, it is now Mr. Bachchan. That made DEPARTMENT all the more reason for me to be happy about."
