Tirupathi Reddy: "Kodandarami Reddy hails from the same place of ours, we thought of doing a film together and worked on a couple of subjects in Chiranjeevi and Kodandarami Reddy combination.

However, I liked the subject of First Blood, I asked Paruchuri brothers to come up with a story based on that film. They gave a wonderful script for the film.... The protagonist was just a villager in our initial script, but we changed it to a student, it clicked! The title Khaidi was my choice indeed!" "Madhavi and Chiranjeevi were a hit pair, but Madhavi didn't work with Kondadarami Reddy before and thus I wanted to cast her in the film. Nitya acted in a Tamil film. I liked her character in the film and we signed her in for the bubbly character of Rosy. Our banner name being Samyuktha, we rechristened Nitya as Samyuktha, she continued to do more films, such as Sirivennela under the same name." "The film's shooting was started at Prasad Labs on 30 April 1983, with the muhurtam shot on Chiranjeevi and Madhavi.. The film was completed in three schedules; the number of shooting days were forty. Chiranjeevi was paid Madhavi Rs. 40,000, Sumalatha Rs. 20,000, the director Kondarami Reddy was paid Rs. 40,000 too.

As we wanted to make the film a prestigious one, we spent all our money and we had not made much profit in the film's first run. As the film's rights were sold once every five years to exhibitors, we made profit on this film after five years and through the following years. After five years, we made a profit of 2 million rupees, some more during the subsequent years. We have not made much profit on satellite rights as we were not aware that it would boom so much today." "Most of the shooting was done in the village called Rebala near Nellore, while the climax was shot at Porur near Madras. The blasting of houses, some other such scenes were done there at a specially erected set; the house set and minor patchwork of shooting was done in Madras. Madhavi, being a lady artiste, had an exclusive house in Talakona location, while everyone else adjusted in huts and houses in and around the village.""The now famous costume of Chiranjeevi was his own idea! We first thought of doing it ordinarily. In the last minute, he got a black trouser and black T-shirt from the house, took off the sleeves of the shirt and had the belt above the T-shirt.

The getup clicked so much that he became a Khaidi in the hearts of lakhs of audiences with this movie." Director Kodandarami Reddy talks about the film: "We planned the film with the story given by a Tamil writer, but it didn't work out. Tirupathi Reddy gaaru gave the cassette of First Blood and suggested that we should develop the story based on the initial scenes of the movie. Paruchuri brothers gave wonderful story based on it.... In those times, we never used to think that it could be risky to go out of the way to do something different! We always wanted to experiment on va
