Tabu last appeared in a Telugu feature more than 10 years ago in 2008. Her performance in the K Raghavendra Rao directorial Pandurangadu won the actress a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress – Telugu.
She had previously said that she plays an "interesting character" in the film. Tabu had also mentioned that since she had already worked with producer Allu Arvind, the experience of shooting Allu Arjun's upcoming film would be easy for her.
AA19 is expected to release early next year.
