The basic plot of the film was inspired from a Bollywood film “Band Baja Barath”. However the film turned to be a flop at box office. The film was made with a budget of 15 crores. It collected 17 crores in first 3 days and gradually faded out at box office.

As many as four Cinematographers handled the camera for this film. Mahesh Muthuswamy and Sanjay Loknath shared the burden of cinematography for the major part of the movie. Cinematographer Andrew did the climax of the film and Shyam K Naidu shot ‘Ninnila’ song.
Yash Raj films filed a petition on the makers of the film claiming copyrights issue.
Also Yash Raj films thought of entering into Tollywood with ‘Band Baja Barat’ remake in Telugu with Nani in the lead role. Nani specially went to Mumbai for photo-shoot of this remake project.
Director Nandini Reddy narrated the story to Samantha and producer Bellamkonda Suresh and then selected Siddharth as hero. But Samantha was busy with other films.

She liked it a lot and the movie went to floors with the second story.
During the shooting of the film character artist Sayaji Shinde got injured. So Nandini Reddy changed few scenes for his comfortability.
