On the other hand, Shruti's father has already fixed her marriage with Rohit (Adivi Shesh). When Rohit learns about Ravi, he sends his parents to talk to Shruti's father (Nassar). At the same time, Mohan Rao (Prakash Raj) arrives and asks for the collaboration of his son Ravi and Shruti. Nassar agrees to the marriage proposal of Ravi and Shruti immediately after learning that Shruti loves Ravi. It enrages Rohit's (Adivi Shesh) mother (Sana).
Rohit's mother calls his brother Poorna (Ashutosh Rana), a dreaded criminal, and asks him to kill Ravi (Ravi Teja). Poorna, Rohit, and their goons reach the wedding venture of Ravi and Shruti. However, Poorna recognizes that Ravi and Mohan Rao are his former nemesis, Shankar and Nanaji, respectively. Moreover, they are not a father-son duo.
