Nuthan Prasad was credited in the film with his original name (Varaprasad), though he changed his name to Nuthan Prasad two years before this film, when he acted in Muthyala Muggu.
The film was a decent hit, though it was naturally affected by Raghavendra Rao's own "bigger" blockbuster film, Adavi Ramudu which was released a week (on April 28, 1977) after the film Kalpana (on April 22, 1977)
