Tollywood director Rajamouli was given an offer to introduce Ram Charan Tej but Rajamouli declined the offer. Already, Rajamouli was busy with his film during that time and the director was not sure how Charan acts on screen. So, Rajamouli told Chiranjeevi that he would direct Charan for the second film. Subsequently, daring director, Puri Jagannadh was given a chance. The script of Puri was liked by Chiranjeevi and so he came on to the board for Chirutha film. The movie turned as the blockbuster and later Rajamouli directed Charan for Magadheera.
