Speaking on the occasion, Maheshbabu said, “I was impressed with the story narrated by Trivikram Srinivas after a hit film like Athadu. I listened to the story and inspired by the subject, I am doing the film with a lot of interest. The film will come up with high technical standards and will definitely attract all classes of audiences."
Heroine Anushka commented, “This is my first film with Maheshbabu. I am very happy for acting in Trivikram"s direction.'
Producer Rameshbabu said, “We will complete 50 per cent of the film with the schedule that ends by the end of June. We are building a village set exclusively for the film near Gandipet at a cost of Rs 2 crore. Likewise, we are also erecting a Rajasthan temple set with a huge budget. The July schedule is planned in Namibia of South Africa, while the August schedule is planned in Rajasthan. We will choreograph songs in Italy in September. We have plans to complete the post-production works in October and November and release the film in December. It is well aware that Mahesh has given a blockbuster like Pokiri, Anushka has given a super hit like Arundhati, while Trivikram is enjoying the success of Jalsa. The combination of these successful trio would definitely be a huge success."
