The film is produced by Venkatesh and Gnanesh. Raviraj has scored the music. Danny has composed the fights.

Director Ratnaja who is staging a comeback after four years told reporters that the industry had changed during these years so much that it was becoming difficult for film-makers to release films and find theatres. He said the response from distributors for newcomers’ films was not encouraged which was why the  team decided to release the film under a new banner that they registered called Nenapirali Movies.

He said he wanted to release the movie for Sankranti but the atmosphere was not conducive given the theatre set up and the supply of films. He said he wanted to celebrate 10 years of release of Nenapirali in December and so he said it would be ideal to register the name of distribution company in the name of the film.

Ratnaja said the publicity campaign had worked well all over Karnataka where the team had adopted medical covers to promote the film. He said Mandya, Mysuru and Bengaluru were yet to be covered which will be done in the coming week.

Producer Venkatesh said he was happy with the team’s hard work and dedication especially the director who thought about cinema all the 24 hours. He said he will see the film with the audiences in the theatre.

Raghu Mukherjee said he was anxious to know why the film’s release got release. But, he said the director told him that every effort was being made to reach out to the people. Raghu Mukherjee said all aspects of cinema making were taken care during the work process.

Surya said after working in serials such as Akka and Devi he was acting in his first film. He thanked the media for the support for a newcomer like him and expressed happiness about the director, team and the producer for the encouragement.

Aqsa Bhatt said producers had a great heart to launch newcomers. She said the film is a perfect release for Valentine’s Day. She said she was excited about the release and said herself and Surya made for a cute couple on screen.

Music director Raviraj said Ratnaja’s dialogues and the feel that goes with it were the highlight of the film. He said he hoped that the film would give him a break as a music director. A lot of hard work had gone into the film which was evidently visible, he said.
