Popular producer MS Raju, who had brought out several hit films under Sumanth Art Productions, has made his debut as director for Vaana under his own banner. He chose a successful Kannada film Mungaru Male and remade it in Telugu. It is learnt that MS Raju first opted to promote his son Sumanth Ashwin as hero through this movie. However, he dropped the idea as the hero needs to show different emotions and it needs some experience. At the same time, he thought that the audience should also get a new face as hero as the storyline is mainly based on love. MS Raju, made this love story quite entertaining with a novel movement of the story.
