Shri D.L. Narayana Garu , who produced Devadasu with A.N.R.on his Vinoda Pictures, apparently hosted a tea-party at Hotel Palmgrove in Chennai for Superstar Krishna and Smt. Vijaya Nirmala and blessed the couple after knowing that they were interested in re-making the film. So, Shri D.L. Narayana Garu, was indirectly involved in both the controversial films of Krishna in 1974. It can be recalled that D.L. wanted to make A.S.R. with Sobhan Babu.
