Kovera said that ‘U’ was based on a totally new concept which remained unexplored during the past 80 years of Telugu cinema. Nobody took up such a project in the past, he added. He said that the story was written keeping Pawan Kalyan in mind and the film should have been made at a whopping amount of Rs 100 crore, but due to budgetary constraints, they were forced to make it within a modest figure of Rs 1 crore with himself in the lead. He said that the first half of the film was made in the backdrop of a village while the second half in an underworld, which is totally different.
