The upcoming untitled film will mark the third collaboration between Allu Arjun and Trivikram. The actor-director duo has previously delivered Julayi and S/O Satyamurthy.
In 2018, Allu Arjun did just one film, Naa Peru Surya, Naa Illu India, which failed to meet the expectations.

Trivikram, meanwhile, delivered two films this year. He started 2018 on a very disappointing note with Pawan Kalyan’s Agnyaathavaasi. The film, rated poorly both by critics and the audience, became one of the biggest flops of 2018. This was in addition to the plagiarism charges that was levelled against Trivikram by the creator of French film Largo Winch.
However, he made a comeback this year with Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava, which had Jr NTR in the lead.
