Ram Pothineni was last seen in Hello Guru Prema Kosame, directed by Trinadha Rao Nakkina and bankrolled by Dil Raju in which Anupama Parameswaran and Pranitha Subhash played the female leads.
On the otherside, Puri Jagannadh’s previous offering Mehbooba was disaster at the box office. He desperately needs a super hit movie because after Temper in 2015, he did not deliver any hit movie.
