Talking about the film and its story, earlier Junior NTR had said: “What happens when these two characters meet at crossroads? It’s an interesting story, emphasising on the importance of nature and people in our lives, in a very commercial and entertaining way. This is probably one script that can’t be dominated by actors. Here, there are only characters.”
