Ravi Babu, the director of Avunu had revealed several times that the movie is inspired by few incidents Yami Gautam narrated during her stay in Sitara Hotel at Ramoji film city. The movie went on to become success for the magnitude of a small budget and is now being remade by Ravi Babu himself. But to the utter disbelief of him, Yami refused when he offered her the same role in the Hindi remake of Avunu. Trying his best to mask hi disappointment, the director brushes it off by saying, “Yami was reluctant to do the role so we gave up. It doesn’t bother me as I can easily find another star to play the exciting role.”
PVP Cinemas had acquired Tamil dubbing rights and is planning to dub and release Tamil version. The dubbed version is titled as Aama (literal Tamil translation for Telugu word Avunu). The movie is yet to see the light.
