Venkatesh Daggubati has joined the sets of his upcoming revenge drama Naarappa, the remake of Tamil blockbuster movie Asuran in which Dhanush and Manju Warrier played the lead roles. It is known news that Family director Srikanth Addala is on the board to helm Venkatesh starrer Naarappa. Apparently, this film is not just directed by Srikanth Addala but another director is also coming on board. According to the latest update, KS Ravindra alias Bobby who has delivered Jai Lava Kusa and Power in past has been roped to take care of action episodes of Venkatesh starrer Naarappa.
Venkatesh and Suresh Babu who are very impressed with the work of Bobby in recently released multistarrer Venky Mama asked him to work for Naarappa. The sources say that Bobby will be taking care of the action parts in Venkatesh’s film while Srikanth Addala handles the rest. Let’s wait for the official announcement regarding the inclusion of Bobby in Naarappa.
Naarappa is jointly produced by D Suresh Babu and Kalaippuli S Thanu. The shooting is currently going on at the brisk pace. Cinematographer Shyam K Naidu has also come on board for this film. The first looks of Naarappa show Venkatesh Daggubati in exactly the same outfit as Dhanush from Asuran, and it remains to be seen if the Telugu team can adapt the script successfully too.
The sources say that Naarappa might be loosely based on the Karamchedu massacre which happened in the year 1985. A conflict between Kamma and Dalits landlords resulted in the killings of six Dalits and grievously injuring 20 more. Action choreographer Peter Hein has been roped in for stunts. According to the latest buzz, Priyamani will play the female lead and will essay Venkatesh’ wife in Naarappa.
Dhanush starrer Asuran was directed by Vetrimaaran and it became Dhanush’s first film to reach the Rs 100 crore market.
