While visiting an old acquaintance who lived in the Kancharapalem neighborhood, director Maha had the inspiration for C/o Kancherapalem. Maha made the decision to create an independent film on the area and its residents after speaking with and carefully observing the locals’ way of life.
Later, Maha met Praveena Paruchuri, a cardiologist who was working toward making a movie in India. The moment Maha played the story pitch video for Parachuri, she was blown away and told him, “This is made for Cannes.” In exchange for producing the movie, Parachuri gave Maha 3,000 as a down payment.
Nearly 80 non-actors, the majority of Maha’s cast, are locals of the town. The people in the community had exhibited a lot of eagerness to act even if no one took his filmmaking endeavors seriously. When Maha traveled from the United States to see the sets, she also cast Paruchuri for a role.
The movie was filmed in the Visakhapatnam suburbs of Bheemili and Kancharapalem for 62 days over two schedules.
The movie’s post-production work was carried out at Ramanaidu Studios, where the studio’s proprietor, D. Suresh Babu, just so happened to watch the movie. The film’s distribution rights were swiftly purchased by Babu.
