In one of his interviews for the release of Thank You, actor Naga Chaitanya revealed that he will remake Maanaada first but has roped in Rana Daggubati to replace the role played by Silambarasan TR.

The film is likely to go on floors only after the shooting of Venkat Prabhu's NC22. The director will oversee the scripting process for the film, although the call to direct the film has not yet been accepted. More updates on that later.
