Recently, Rahul and Nani released a video detailing how the lyricist worked on the song despite his health constraints. Rahul stated in the video, “On November 3, “Sirivennela’ garu informed me that he could not complete the song because of his health condition. However, we requested him to write. I was woken up by his call the very next morning, on Deepavali, and he asked me to write down the ‘pallavi’. One line had his name Sirivennela. When asked, he laughed and said that this might be his last song. The irony is that his last rites were performed on the day the song was recorded.”
