K Raghavendra Rao can spot talent at an early age - Brahmanandam
Speaking on this occasion comedian Brahmanandam said that he visited 19 years back to the shooting location of K Raghavendra Rao - Chiranjeevi's Chanakya Sapatham in Madras. At that time K Raghavendra Rao professed that Brahmanandam would become an icon in comedy in the years to come. Brahmanandam marveled at K Raghavendra Rao's ability to spot the talent at a very early stage. It was K Raghavendra Rao who spotted Gowtan - son of Brahmanandam - and felt that he could become a good hero. In addition to this, K Raghavendra Rao is also having a hand in production as his maternal nephew Prasad Devineni is the producer of this film. Sunkara Madhu Murali - Khadgam producer - is presenting this flick. Brahmanandam opined that Suchitra Chandrabose is a perfectionist.

Accept the girl for what she is - Suchitra Chandrabose
Suchitra Chandrabose was very emotional when she faced the press. She said that it is her long cherished dream come true. She also said that K Raghavendra Rao guided her towards a right direction so that a few mistakes and unnecessary expenditure could be controlled. The basic storyline of the film is - 'accept a girl for what she is. Do not expect/force her to change'

PhD to Pallaki to Pallakilo Pellikoothuru
Suchitra Chandrabose prepared this story when she worked for Paradesi film which was directed by K Raghavendra Rao. Since then she has been looking out for the right producer. At that time, she titled her script as PhD (Premaki Heart Degree). Usha Kiron Movies agreed to produce this film. But due to certain problems, the film did not take off. Then K Raghavendra Rao asked her to explain about her storyline. She liked it and they started the project. Later on, Suchitra felt that PhD is too classy title for a film. She went for a poetic title like 'Pallaki'. But, it was K Raghavendra Rao who came up with the complete title of 'Pallakilo Pellikoothuru'.

Playing a cool dude character - Gowtam
Hero Gowtam thanked K Raghavendra Rao for encouraging him. He said that the idea of acting in films popped up a year back. Then he took training under Satyanand for a couple of months. Gowtam is playing the character of a cool dude in this film.

Girl from Bangalore - Rathi
