It's 'Maa Annayya' for Raja Sekhar

Tarun After confirming 'Maa Manchi Annayya', the producer has changed the title to 'Maa Annayya' this time. It was kept by keeping the success of Chiru's 'Annayya' and Balayya's 'Peddanayya' in mind. They had to add 'Maa' in the front to make sure that the title starts with M. In the past, Bhargav arts titled their film as 'Maa Balaju' to make sure that it starts with M. But unfortunately, it failed at box-office. This film is a remake of Tamil hit 'Vanatha Polai', which was bought for a whopping amount of 70 lacs by the producer. It was supposed to be directed by Muthyala Subbaiah. But he was unceremoniously dropped in the last minute to accommodate Ravi Raja Pinisetty. The producer has to pay 12 lacs to Muthyala Subbaiah as compensation. This film is sold for one crore for the Ceded area. Audio of this film was bought for Rs 18 lacs, which is the highest amount for any Raja Sekhar's film. Raj Sekhar is doing the double action in this film.
