Nani is seen in a mass avatar in one role and a rock star in another role. In this frame of context, there are talks going on that this movie was originally designed for Ram Charan. Director Merlapaka Gandhi wanted Ram Charan to play the dual roles in Krishnarjuna Yuddham. Charan apparently rejected this offer, as he was looking for a role which would bring the best out of himself. Charan seems to have told to Merlapaka Gandhi that he would definitely do a movie with him, in the near future but not this. Nani was interested to do this project and hence it happened. Krishnarjuna Yuddham is slated for its release on April 12.
