It has been a long-cherished wish of Vishal to do a straight Telugu movie. He waited for the right story to come his way. When Sashikanth, who worked under Sreenu Vaitla and Shekar Suri, narrated a story to him, Vishal okayed it in the first sitting.
Saying that the story suits the image of the actor, Vikram Krishna of GK Film Corporation said that the character is tailor-made for the actor's body language. "We will produce the film with popular cast members and the film will be high on technical output. It will go on the floors from November," he said.
Vishal's many Tamil films have been dubbed into Telugu, but not all of them fetched him laurels.
