After the film was announced, fans and netizens couldn't contain their excitement and tweeted about it. One such person was a producer who tweeted, “The question that I have been asked most, other than “why Kattappa killed Baahubali?” has been “what’s your next movie after Baahubali?”. Today, I have an answer. Excited to announce our next project.”

The 58-second-teaser released introduces the viewer to the proprietor of Komali Photo Studio from Araku Valley named Uma Maheshwara Rao who swears that he will not wear slippers till he takes revenge from the person who slapped him. Reportedly, the film has already been shot and is all set to release on April 17, 2020. It stars South Indian actors in the likes of Naresh, Suhas, Ramprasad and K Raghavan in pivotal roles
For those unaware, the film was previously remade by Priyadarshan as Nimir in Tamil. And, unlike the Malayalam version, the Tamil version did not well at the ticketing counters and thus tanked at the Box Office.
