The film will be helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga who has previously directed the original Telugu blockbuster 'Arjun Reddy'. The film is said to go on floors next month if reports are to be believed. Commenting on the film, the director stated that Kiara epitomises the female character in the film to the T and that she is a perfect blend of both innocence and maturity.
