      In an interaction with Mid-Day, the production designer Suresh Selvarajan revealed the long process behind building the sets of Acharya, and commented on the shoot of Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali happening there. "It took us 20 acres and more than Rs 20 crore to make the set on Chiranjeevi sir's land in Kokapet. I come from the temple town of Chidambaran, so [it influenced my design] of the fictional town. I am happy that Salman is shooting on the same set now. The temple town has a gurukul, gaushala, streets and junctions. The team can make whatever alterations they want to," he said.
