Noted film financier Singanamala Ramesh is planning to turn producer with this movie.

There were high expectations on the film in the combination of Surya and Pawan Kalyan among the latter's fans. It is reliably learnt that 'Puli' is the title under consideration for the flick.

It may be mentioned here that Padma Bhushan, Mega Star, Dr Chiranjeevi, played hero in a film with the same title.
