Director Ravi Babu is known for choosing different subjects as plotlines for his films. While many choose love stories or family backdrops, Ravi Babu has chosen thrillers.
Among many such subjects, Avunu is one such film for Ravi Babu that was helmed by the director. The film was a commercial hit and rained moolah for the producer too. Since Avunu stood as a hit, Ravi Babu wanted to go for a sequel. However, writer Nivas' close friend and who assisted Ravi Babu in Avunu asked him to not.
He told Ravi Babu that the sequel will not have any connection with the first one. But Ravi Babu was adamant on making it and the film failed to work at the box-office as expected by Nivas.
