Dil Raju's daughter, Hanshita Reddy, and nephew Harshit Reddy have produced this film on Dil Raju Productions. Speaking in an interview, Dil Raju reveals that when his team came to him with the final product, there was a discussion to release the film on OTT as the subject matter was a bit arty. But as he was quite sure about the outcome, he chose the theatrical release.
Adding further, he says "The moment I heard the story, I felt the narration was a bit serious. But if we could make the film on a commercial note, the audience will love it irrespective of the region it is set in and will be welcomed on the big screens". Balagam is set in the small town of Siricialla in Telangana and deals with the changes a family goes through when an elder passes away.
