Director Amma Rajasekhar has directed mass entertaining films like Ranam, which starred Gopichand. It was also his debut movie as a director. Khatarnak and Bheebatsam are the two other commercial movies directed by Rajasekhar. However, these could not do well at the box office. He was also supposed to direct renowned actor Victory Venkatesh in a movie titled Ganga, which did not happen.
In the bilingual movie Bheebhatsam, the director cast his brother Yuvan as one of the actors. In fact, Yuvan was the man behind the story of his directorial debut Ranam.
