Hanu knew their family was from Vijayawada and their son lived in a hostel. In that letter, his mother asked about his well-being and returned home. So he thought if the body of the letter had a few required courses of events. Once, the writer got an idea, the Army backdrop was added to the story. Rajkumar Kandamudi gave this idea.
