The show is a sci-fi fantasy take on this incident. Nagarjuna, played by Anshuman Malhotra, is a reluctant superhero in the show.

The maker of Nagarjuna - ek Yodha, Yash Patnaik says that it took him almost two years to put it together.  Bollywood movie Krrish 3 screen writer Robin Bhatt and Akash Khurana have written Nagarjuna - ek Yodha.

The makers have created two entire cities at Film City in Mumbai. The sets have been created by Nitin Desai and Anup Adhikari. Sources close to the makers claim that sets are detailed and have cost dear. These sources claim that the first episode alone has cost Rs two crore.

Woosh Detergent powder is the co-powered by sponsor for the show. Industry source say that a 10 second time slot for a 9PM show on Life OK, could be in the bracket of Rs 30,000 to Rs 45,000.
