Samantha Ruth Prabhu's remarks on involvement with Citadel: Honey Bunny

Samantha discussed her involvement with Citadel: India at the Prime Video Presents event in Mumbai. She stated, "I would never have imagined that I could take action. But just being here at this event is already a sure victory for me because, till the last moment, I really didn't think I could do it. I didn't think I would be a part of this Citadel: Honey Bunny. I am extremely grateful to Raj, DK, Sita, and Prime Video for really coming to my rescue. I am just incredibly proud already, and I can't believe that this is how it looks."

Prime Video has not yet announced the premiere date for Citadel: Honey Bunny.
