In early April 2013, the writer duo Paruchuri Brothers informed the media that they were in final stages in acquiring the remake rights and that work on the script would begin after acquiring the rights. It was also said that Ravi Teja would play the role of Lord Krishna in this film which was done by Akshay Kumar in the original and that the official confirmation of the film would be happening in a week. However, in mid-November 2013, reports emerged that Daggubati Venkatesh would play the role of Lord Krishna and Rajendra Prasad would reprise Paresh Rawal in the film. It was said that Daggubati Suresh Babu acquired the remake rights and would produce the film while Jayanth C. Paranjee would direct the film.But later Kishore Kumar Pardasany was selected as the director of the film.
After much speculation, Suresh Babu confirmed to the media in mid-February 2014 that Pawan Kalyan would play the role of Lord Krishna and Sharat Marar would be co producing the film on North Star Entertainment. After considering the titles Deva Devam Bhaje, Go Go Go Govinda, Ori Devuda, Mr. Devudu and Gopala Gopala, the film's title was chosen to be Gopala Gopala just before its formal launch on June 9, 2014 at Hyderabad. Anoop Rubens was confirmed to replace Sohail Sen as the music director, and Jayanan Vincent was selected to handle the cinematography despite reports stating that P. C. Sreeram would be doing the job.
