LocationEdit

While Krishna was busy with the Kurusketram, NTR was busy with the production of Daana Veera Soora Karna.[1] While the former was shot in Mysore, Rajasthan, and other places with huge settings, DVSK was made locally in Ramakrishna Cine Studios. The people who worked for both the films were Gummadi Venkateswara Rao (Parashurama in DVSK), Kaikala Satyanarayana (Bheema in DVSK), Dhulipala (Shakuni in DVSK), Mukkamala (Shalya in DVSK).
