One can see Meenakshi, clad in a simple saree, sitting by the entrance of a room as she looks straight into the camera and smiles. A scooter is seen by the side against what looks like a retro backdrop. Her character is named Sumathi.

The project is bankrolled by Naga Vamsi and Sai Soujanya, under the banners Sithara Entertainments, Srikara Studios, and Fortune Four Studios.
