Directed by Gunasekhar, the historic period drama is based on the play Shaakuntalam written by 4th-century Sanskrit poet Kalidas.

Apart from the original Telugu version, Shaakuntalam will also be simultaneously dubbed into Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, and Hindi. While the film was initially supposed to have been released in November 2022, the makers postponed citing 3D effects.
