Yashoda will be directed by Hari and Harish and produced by Sivalenka Krishna Prasad, who backed Telugu films such as Aditya 369 and Sammohanam. Speaking at the launch, the producer stated that Yashoda is a new-age thriller: “Samantha gained pan-India attention with The Family Man 2. In accordance with her current image, we have conceived a thriller that will cater to a wide section of the audience.”

The filming is expected to be completed by March 2022. The film’s team includes music director Mani Sharma, cinematographer M Sukumar, editor Marthand K Venkatesh, lyricist Ramajogaiah Sastry and dialogue writers Pulagam Chinnarayana and Challa Bhagyalakshmi.
