Ram Gopal Varma was planning to produce a film with Ravi Teja in the direction of Prawaal Raman (Darna Mana Hain fame) in Telugu. Jyotika was also signed as heroine by then. Since Prawaal Raman was a Hindi guy, Ravi Teja wanted a Telugu guy in direction department. He suggested Harish's name as a co-director to Ram Gopal Varma. Harish and Kona Venkat went to Mumbai to listen to the story. RGV gave the narration and Harish told RGV that the script is very good, but won't suit Ravi teja. RGV told him – 'you came from Hyderabad after assisting a couple of films and passing judgment on my story like a pundit. But I like your guts because you spoke frankly without trying to be a sycophant. Since you worked with Ravi Teja and know what works for him, I am willing to offer you a direction chance'. Kona insisted Harish to accept this project.
