I'm happy that we've Shivanna, who has starred in the hit song, staring in this song too."
The director added, “We've popular Bollywood choreographer Pradeep Anthony, who has already done several dance sequences in Telugu movies. He was the one who choreographed the popular Kannada song 'Taliban Alla Alla...' Now, he has created 24 different dance steps for this song and they've really come out very well."
