There had been many cooked up stories on Victory Venkatesh's cameo role in Agnyathavasi prior to the film's release. And true to those speculations, the makers thanked Venkatesh in the title cards of the film.
However, Venkatesh was seen nowhere in the film. His 3-minute episode was chopped off due to length issues. It's learnt that Venkatesh played a cop role in the film, who enters after interval fight sequence.
The interaction between Pawan Kalyan and Venkatesh goes on a funny note wherein Gabbar Singh's 'Naakkonchem thikkundi...kaanee daniko lekkundhi' dialogue is vocalized by both heroes. It's heard that the makers are contemplating to add the scene after two or three days.
In spite of negative reports, Agnyathavasi collected an all time record share of Rs.40 crores on day one of its release. The movie is hoped to mint more money during this festive season.
