In 2013, Hemant Madhukar saw the dialogue-less film Pushpaka Vimana (1987) and developed a desire to make a similar dialogue-less thriller. He wondered: "What if the protagonist is hearing and speech impaired and has to communicate through sign language?" After a long gap, Madhukar gave the script to Kona Venkat, who developed it into a screenplay. Venkat felt it had the potential to be an international project and included dialogues. Hence the movie is released in three languages Telugu, Tamil, and English.
