Ashwin in a press release said, “With this the first Telugu original by Netflix, I really wanted to push the boundaries of what people expect from the medium. I hope Pitta Kathalu, the four different stories of this anthology, the four unique worlds the directors have created will connect with people, not just in the Telugu speaking states but across the world.”

Reddy said about her first Netflix film, “Collaborating with Netflix and the accomplished cast of Pitta Kathulu has been a very rewarding experience. Working with gifted directors who seek to travel on newer paths of storytelling has helped us bring forth authentic human stories and a differentiated take on relationships."
