A few days earlier, there were talks that Director Koratala Siva had bought the rights to this movie from his friend Sri Hari who is also a filmmaker. Every other website came up with stories and it was written that Koratala had bought the story of Bharath Ane Nenu for 1 Core. But, Koratala Siva trashed these rumors and told that the basic line was his friend’s idea, but it was him who developed the whole story. “The basic idea is my friend’s. That is why I have given him the credits. But, I did the whole script by myself”, Koratala clarified. Bharath Ane Nenu is to feature Mahesh Babu in the role of Chief Minister.
