Due to the fact that the lead actor's real name, Sumanth, was already the name of an established actor, Kodandarami Reddy asked Chiranjeevi to pick a name from a list of ten names that Reddy had selected for his son. Chiranjeevi picked out the name Vaibhav from the list to be Sumanth Reddy's stage name. The filming was completed in September 2007.
Soundtrack was composed by Mani Sharma. The audio was launched on 10 September 2007. The songs were shot Bangkok, Malaysia and Visakhapatnam. Balakrishna attended the audio launch as a chief guest.
