Rakshit Shetty and Hemanth Rao who made the sensational Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu have discussed about making a historical set during the Independence Movement. The film is titled Tenali but there is no timeline set for it. It may take months or years. Hemanth has said "'Tenali' is still an idea & has a long way to go. I will only start writing once I'm done with Kavaludaari. It's still too early to say when Tenali will begin his adventure but whenever it happens, the film will see the 3 of us, Pushkar, Rakshit and I work together."
The reason for this film according to Hemanth is "I've always been a big fan of history and period pieces. I had this idea for a film set during the independence struggle. I discussed the idea and character with Rakshit who really loved it, so we decided to try a few looks for fun."
