    Naveen Yerneni and Y Ravi Shankar produced the movie under the Mythri Movie Makers banner on a budget of Rs 140 Crore. As claimed by the makers, the movie has grossed Rs 200 Crore. Waltair Veerayya achieved break-even within eight days of its theatrical release, which is also a record for the actor in his entire career spanning about 40 years. On the other hand, Balakrishna's film although was successful and had achieved the higest-openings in his career, couldn't achieve break-even.
