Taraka Rathna, grandson of late yester year Telugu super star N T R made his debut as the hero in this film Pagadai. Poorna was pairing with him. Raj Kiran was doing a pivotal role in this film. Raja Krishna was directing this film. But due to unknown problems the film was shelved after first schedule of shooting.
Now the problems have been sorted out and the shooting of the film is to be revived with fresh splendor. The title has also been changed to Viswaroopam due to sentiment reasons. Viswaroopam was the title of the yester year hit film which had Late Shivaji Ganesan in the lead.
