Directed by Teja, the film also stars Kajal Aggarwal and Catherine Tresa.

"All films Rana had acted in so far have been well received for his courage to carve a distinct screen persona. I wanted Nene Raju, Nene Mantri to match not only the actor's stature but also surpass the viewers' expectation," Teja said.
