The makers announced the release date in an official poster. The film will be Pannu's first Telugu release post Pink and Naam Shabana.

Directed by Mahi Raghav, the movie also stars Srinivas, Vennela Kishore, Shankar and 'Tagubothu' Ramesh. Taapsee had heard the story of Anando Brahma even before the release of Pink.

"I pitched the story to Taapsee in 2015 December, and it took one whole year for the project to materialise. Back then, Pink had not released and I was hopeful she would do my film. As I got busy finding a producer and locking the final draft of the script, Pink had released and she had won over everybody," Raghav had told IANS.

He didn't think she will do his film. "Post Pink, I never thought she would do my film. I assumed she would get busy in Bollywood and won't have time for my project. But she showed a lot of faith in my film. Even as I waited to find a producer, she kept in touch and that really encouraged me," he said.

The film has been produced by Vijay and Shashi under the 70 mm Entertainment banner.
