Hero Jagapati Babu said, “Today is the best birthday I celebrated so far. I am proud of my disciplined fans. I am happy to have a producer who is known for promoting films with right publicity. Surya Kiran is very talented. I saw his Satyam film and there is lot of spontaneity in his direction.”
Lyricist and dialogue writer Bhaskarabhatla said, “I penned lyrics for Pedababu, Kabadi Kabadi and Pandem films are Jagapati Babu. For the first time I am penning dialogues for a film. I share good wavelength with director Surya Kiran. Brahmastam is used when all other weapons fail.”

I prepared script in 5 days - Surya Kiran
Director Surya Kiran said, “There is a strong mother sentiment in this film though it is an action film. I am also happy to tell that my mother and hero Jagapati Babu’s mother graced this occasion to bless us. Jagapati Babu told me that I need to narrate the subject immediately as if I miss this time, I will get his dates only in September. I prepared the script of Brahmastram in 5 days and narrated it. Jagapati Babu accepted the script immediately. All characters in this film are vital.”
Film release in either last week of April or 1st week of May - Surya Prakasa Rao
Producer Nukarapu Surya Prakasa Rao said, “Surya Kiran is an able director and Jagapati Babu has got good body language. My last film Adirindayya Chandra ran for 100 days in 7 centers. The regular shooting of this film will start on 15th February and will be completed in a single schedule. The unit would move to London to can songs. We are looking to release this film either in the last week of April or the first week of May 2006. We will finalize the heroine in a couple of days. I would like to thank K Kesava Rao and P Ramachandra Rao for gracing this occasion.”
