Previously in an interview with Press Trust of India, Daggubati had described the film as a reflection to the environmental crisis across the world.
"It''s a mirror to the society. This happening in many parts of the country, the world. Everywhere there's an elephant corridor and urbanisation around. There are cities which grow and break the natural habitat.
"As filmmakers, artistes, we have films to voice out certain things. To influence people in the most entertaining way possible," the actor had said.
