National award winning director Sekhar Kammula said that he started shooting Anand film on 13th of November and completed the film after 100 shooting days.

He arranged 10 preview shows for Anand. All the distributors appreciated the film, but did not dare to buy it. Finally Sekhar had to release the film on his own with six prints in Hyderabad, Vizag, Vijaywada and Warangal on 15th October, the day when Chiranjeevi's Shankardada MBBS was released with more than 500 prints. With the superhit talk, Sekhar Kammula has got buyers for all the areas. He released Anand with 23 more prints a week later on 22nd October 2004. Sekhar Kammula thanked Suresh Movies distributors and Prasad labs for rending help.
