The film marks the third collaboration between Naga Chaitanya and Chandoo Mondeti after Premam and Savyasachi. The makers have commenced preparation for NC23. It is reported that the actor and director duo even visited the K Matchilesam village of Srikakulam and met the fishermen of the region. The visit was an attempt to learn more about the land, culture, and lifestyle of the place. If the reports are to be believed, Naga Chaitanya will be seen as a young man belonging to a fishermen’s community from a small town in Andhra Pradesh in his next.
While Sai Pallavi last graced the big screens in 2022 with the Tamil entertainer Gargi, Naga Chaitanya was seen in Venkat Prabhu’s Custody. He was seen essaying the role of a police officer in the film. The actress also received a lot of praise for her courtroom drama.
