Gunasekhar says, "The Muhurtha shot has been shot on Siva Linga that has been self formed 900 years ago. There is nothing better to start than at the thousand pillar temple which has standout as a testimony to Kakathiya's grandeur. Inaddition today is a very prosperous day (Panchami) on which over 1,50,000 marriages are being done. So we have started today. The regular shooting of the film starts in April at the huge sets designed by 'Padmasri' Thota Tharani. There are many great actors in this film in which Anushka is acting as Rudramadevi and Rana as Chalukya Veerabhadra. The test shoot with the 3d cameras has been already done in Germany. Technically, this movie will be of international standards. Foreign technicians are working for Visual effects. I am very happy at my dream of making Rudramadevi coming true. This first historical stereoscopic 3d movie in India definitely allures".
Anushka says," I was very motivated and decided to do the movie when Gunasekhar told me this story. Characters like this come very rarely. I have been taking training in horse riding and sword fighting for this character.This character becomes a milestone in my career. My dream of working with Gunasekhar has come true with this film".
Rana says," I really love historical movies. I regularly practice dialogues in them. I have been very lucky to get Chalukya Veerabhadra's character in this movie. I am very happy working with Gunasekhar. This will be a prestigious project for me as an actor".
