In reference to the film's success, Prashanth told PTI in an interview, "When we started with the film, we never thought that it would be this big and that we would be here today." We didn't start by trying to make it into a pan-India film or, for that matter, in two parts. We started out as a Kannada movie and eventually thought of splitting it into two parts and taking it outside. The credit should go to the producer and Yash. For me, the idea was to connect with people through the mother-son story."
