This story point was conceived by me when Bhaskar was in film institute. It started with the thread of a small communication gap between father and son.

But Sukumar had always been reminding Bhaskar to develop this story idea.

Working title for the film was ‘Hello Hello O Abbai’. The makers were looking for a unique, trendy yet traditional title. The caption for it was ‘oka peru – rendu jantalu – nalugu premalu – dozen godavalu’. When he was discussing with Kalyani Malik, he suggested Ashta Chemma. They could not have asked for a better title.

While picturing the gala gala song, they arranged bombs in the back where they blast colorful chamkis.

Shriya did not bother to cover her ears with muffs. When blast took place, she went so blank due to sound that she started walking out of the set as if she forgotten everything. Prabhas had to go to her and bring her back into camera field just in time.
15. Anokukunda oka roju
