Full arrangements were made to shoot the film at NTR Ghat near Hussainsagar Lake in Hyderabad on Sunday morning. Before capturing first shot, police entered the scene and asked Director Kethireddy Jagadeeswar Reddy to wind up shooting on the grounds that the production unit did not seek any permission to shoot in the historical Ghat.
As the director failed to furnish required permission letter from the government, the production crew packed shooting equipment and left the place. The film, being produced by G Vijaykumar Goud, received strong opposition from NTR wife Laxmi Parvathi. She alleged that the film script distorted the facts and showing her in bad light.
