Nageswara Rao, Savithri, Rshyendramani, Chayadevi, Surya Kantham and Sandhya, went on to become a big hit and completed 100 days in 15 centres, in its first release.

The landmark film also completed a direct silver jubilee at Sri Durga Kala Mandir, Vijayawada.

Though NTR played mythological roles before this film, he earned the name of 'Apara Sri Krishnudu' after he excelled in the role of Lord Krishna in Mayabazar.

Jointly produced by Nagi Reddy and Chakrapani under the prestigious banner of Vijaya Productions, it was directed by KV Reddy with music by Ghantasala, art by Kaladhar-Gokhale, cinematography by Marcus Bartley and script by Pingali Nagendrarao.
