This rustic mass action entertainer is being produced by Sudhakar Cherukuri under the banner of Sri Lakshmi Venkateswara Cinemas.
Coming out of his comfort zone, Nani is playing a rustic character in the movie. He underwent a mass and rugged makeover to play this character. His Telangana dialect in the film's announcement video stunned one and all. The 'Spark of Dasara' also received an overwhelming response.
