Speaking on the occasion, producer Chandra says, “I am producing this film as Anushka agreed to play this role. I am indebted to Annapurna Studios banner as I turned a producer with the blessings of Akkineni Nagarjuna." Director Samudra says, “Chandra rose from make-up man to a producer now. While I am directing Sivaramaraju, he told me that I should direct the film which would be produced by him. He stood by his word by giving me an opportunity to direct this film. The third schedule would be in February. We have plans to release the film in April." Anushka says, “I made my debut appearance from Annapurna Studios.
