The story of the movie is written by Srihari Nani for Power Star Pawan Kalyan after the launch of Janasena in 2014, he also narrated the script to the actor.
However, Pawan rejected the film as people are likely to misunderstand the context of Janasena party and might send wrong signals that he is striving for power.
Writer and director Koratala Shiva got to know about the script and bought it paying over one crore. This is not the first time that Pawan missed some good stories. Pawan has also rejected Idiot, Amma Nanna Tamil girl and Pokiri movies, directed by Puri.
