I opined that Raja is the right choice for this story. He also gladly accepted our offer. Sneha too is the perfect choice for this role. I am directing this film after a gap of 15 years. I am on the verge of retirement as an actor. That is the reason why I want to prove myself as a director. The first schedule will take place in Hyderabad till 30 August. After that we will shift to Ravi Nuthala (near Ongole) from 1st September.”
