We had srinivas Avasarala, who simultaneously wore the hats of an actor, screenwriter, and director with equal ease, before people like adivi sesh and siddhu Jonnalagadda carved out careers in the telugu industry by writing their own scripts, or way before pradeep Ranganathan and Rishab Shetty directed hits they also starred in. ashta chamma (2008), directed by Mohan Krishna Indraganti, was Srinivas's first major film break. Six years later, in 2014, he made his directing debut as a writer-director with Oohalu Gusagusalade, in which he also had a supporting part. The upcoming Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi (PAPA), which stars malavika nair and Srinivas's frequent co-star naga Shaurya in the key roles, marks Srinivas's comeback to directing over ten years later.

In a brief discussion of the hollywood influences that helped shape PAPA, srinivas states, "Back in the day, I used to watch a lot of independent movies, like mumblecore movies and richard Linklater's Before Trilogy, and I was fascinated by how the dialogue in those movies felt less scripted and more like actual conversations happening between two people in real-time. I believed that our movies ought to try that kind of narrative reality as well. The communication between the stars is incredibly real, as you can see in the trailer for the movie, which will be released very soon. We didn't rely on the prepared material or any punchlines in particular; Shaurya and malavika genuinely improvised a lot of their lines.
