Speaking about it, Krishna said, “I did the film at the age of 30. It still remains one of the best movies in my career. We produced the film with more than Rs 20 lakh of budget in those days. And it was first cinemascope movie in Telugu.”
“Late NTR wanted to do a film on the freedom fighter of Alluri Seetaramaraju but couldn’t do so. When he saw the movie, he came and hugged me. He was so excited and told me that he would drop off the idea of doing a film. He kept the promise,” Krishna told.
The film was 100th film for Krishna as hero and his brothers G. Hanumanthu Rao and G. Aadiseshagiri Rao produced it on Padmalaya Studios banner. It won the national award for best lyrics for great Sri Sri for his song – “Telugu Veera Levara” and the film also won Nandi Award for Best Feature Film
