Speaking to the Press Trust of India, Daggubati said that rather that dwelling, he has only focused on moving ahead in life. He notes, “I had a transplant years ago. Very few people knew about it. By logic, it’s a handicap. If I shut one eye, I can’t see from the other. But it is one of those things which I don’t think too much about. One needs to have the strength to move forward.”
