The film was launched in November 2018, with the cast of the film attending the event along with Chiranjeevi and Raghavendra Rao. Reportedly made at a massive budget of Rs 300 crore, the film will open in theatres in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, and other Indian languages.

In a 2019 interview with Firstpost, Rajamouli said the idea of this film is inspired by Che Guevara's memoir The Motorcycle Diaries. He also spoke about selecting the lead actors for his film, "This film demands two Telugu-speaking actors. Moreover, I feel that if we stay true to the storyline, and create necessary emotional impact, audiences from other languages wouldn’t mind seeing unfamiliar faces as the protagonists."

According to an India Today report,  Jr NTR, Ram Charan, and Devgn are currently shooting their parts in a forest in Vikarabad, Telangana. Bhatt is yet to kickstart her portions.

Prakash Raj, Ray Stevenson, Samuthirakani, Alison Doody, and Olivia Harris are among the other cast members.
