Madhu Babu, a popular detective novel writer, said that a real incident in his life was taken by director, Trivikram Srinivas, for his film. In his younger, he had a bet with his friend that he would visit a burial ground at midnight and sit there. His friend took up the challenge, placed a letter in the place and directed Madhu Babu to visit it. The unafraid novelist won the bet. When he related this incident to Trivikram, the latter asked him if he can borrow it in his films. Madhu Babu simply agreed.
