Produced by Govardhan Rao Deverakonda, Pradeep Errabilli and Vijay Dashi, the film is presented by Vijay Deverakonda.

Though the title might remind Telugu film viewers of director Singeetam Srinivasa Rao’s silent film Pushpaka Vimana (1987), a black comedy starring Kamal Haasan and Amala Akkineni, the new film bears no resemblances.

Director Damodara terms Pushpaka Vimanam as a concept-based film: “Anand plays a government school teacher and it is a family drama.”
