Speaking at the occasion, SS Rajamouli said that he had a long-time dream of bringing the Vijayanagar glory on-screen. He has been thinking about the subject since a few years now and wants to do the film on Sri Krishnadevaraya's incredible rule.

The press meet was attended by Ravichandran, Darshan, producer D Suresh Babu, MM Keeravani, Munirathna and others.
