D.Ramanaidu apparently okayed the 17th version of the script written by E.V.V.Satyanarayana. He wrote the script by only taking the point provided by Paruchuri Brothers*.

“I die for you annadhi Prema“, “Nee Kallaloo Sneehamu” are two of all time hit songs composed by the music-director duo Rajen-Nagendra.
It is pretty interesting that Baby Sri Durga who made her debut in Suresh Productions “Jeevana Jyothy” returned to act as the lead actress in their own production after becoming popular in Kannada (through Nanjunda Kalyana).
