Going by trade reports, the film has been made on a budget of Rs. 40 crore and it has collected Rs. 29 crore through the pre-release business.

According to sources, the Telugu Satellite & Digital Rights have been sold for Rs. 8 crore, while the Malayalam Theatrical, Digital & Satellite Rights fetched the filmmakers Rs. 3.5 crore. The Tamil Theatrical, Digital & Satellite Rights were sold for Rs. 6.5 crore and the Hindi Theatrical, Digital & Satellite Rights fetched Rs. 11 crore.

Anoop Rubens has scored the music for this political pot-boiler and Venkat C. Dileep has cranked the camera with Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao taking care of the editing. The film has been written and directed by Teja.
