Director Kranthi Madhav had approached a couple of heroes before he got a green signal from Vijay Deverakonda. The first choice of Kranthi Madhav was mega hero Sai Dharam Tej. The mega hero was skeptical about the success and he politely turned it down. Kranthi Madhav approached Sharwanand with the same story but he was busy with other projects. So, the director finally approached Vijay Deverakonda.
Unlike the other two heroes, Vijay believed in the story and felt that it would click at the box office. Somehow their estimations have gone wrong and the movie turned out to be a failure. It seems Teju and Sharwa luckily escaped a flop.
