Manoj said that he was to act in the film, but he missed it. Music director Sunil Kashyap, whose recent album It's My Love Story featured some good numbers, hoped that the audio will be a big it.
Kishore's speech was awaited. "I like the first half of Vennela a lot. I wrote this story with that inspiration. Sunil Kashyap has lent the music because of the love he has for Vennela. He has delivered a very good music."
