The boss of Haarika & Hassine Creations, who worked with him in Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo, tweeted, "Gopi Krishna Narravula garu has been an asset to our films we shoot abroad. We are glad to know that he completed 99 films as Foreign shoot coordinator/Line Producer with our #AlaVaikuntapurramuloo.

However, Mahesh Babu announced his next movie Sarkaru Vaari Paata months after the release of Sarileru Neekevvaru. But its shooting has not yet begun due to the coronavirus outbreak. Part of the story is said to be set in the backdrop of the USA and Detroit city is being considered as the prime shooting location, according to the reports.

Sources close to the film unit claim that Parasuram is set to leave for the USA to finalise the locations. The director is hoping to get visas and permission to shoot in Detroit within a month. If everything goes as per his plans, Sarkaru Vaari Paata might commence its shooting part in November.
