We knew that it would cost a lot, but we did not want to compromise in making the best for the film.

The producers spent around Rs 1 Cr in making the set and have said that they haven’t compromised on anything. “There was a day when it rained heavily. We were afraid that the set would collapse from the strong wind. But thankfully, nothing happened. We happily shot on the sets in the film, and it has shaped up really well. We are waiting for the release,” added Jeevan Reddy.
