Trivia: Initially Savitri booked as second heroine opposite Akkineni, but the director LV Prasad disappointed with her performance. She dropped after some shoot and Pushpalatha replaced her. Anyway Savitri did a small role of Pushpalatha’s friend. Later, Savitri made her mark with the great performance as ‘Missamma’, eventually directed by LV Prasad.

NTR and ANR played as siblings.
