Director Naveen Reddy who has worked under Prabhu Srinivas told journalists on Wednesday that Akira is the hero’s name which is also his pet name who is in love and one is possessive. He said the film has completed its shoot in Bengaluru and Goa. A song was shot in Annapoorna Studios of Hyderabad after spending about Rs 45 lakh on the set property.

Anish who is playing the lead sounded excited about about his role in the film. He said his role is stylish who loves two girls innocently but circumstances lead to misunderstanding between them. He said the way the film had panned out there was hardly a doubt that it is helmed by a debutant director.

Krishi Thapanda said she plays a bubbly girl who is a wannabe actress in a stylish role in her second film. She said she was not ready for the film but things fell in place after the story was narrated to her.

Costume designer Arundhati said she had an opportunity to go to Thailand to shop for the costumes for the movie. She said she had given a new look to Anish in the movie.
