Director Maruthi says, "After seeing RGV's Dongala Mutha, I narrated a few stories but people showed no interest. I then bought a 5D and started off on my own with 50 lakhs but went over board by 10 lakhs, but I was sure on spending on publicity as this was a small film. I have a grip and an understanding as I directed ad films for Praja Rajyam Party. They encouraged me but I never took the liberty to ask them for an opportunity to make a movie."
