Sai Dharam Tej is currently working for an upcoming film Republic  in which he is playing the role of an IPS officer.  The movie Republic also has Aishwarya Rajesh, Ramya Krishna, and Jagapathi Babu in other pivotal roles. This Deva Katta directorial venture presents Dharam Tej as a character named Abhi, who is an IAS officer.

The upcoming film Republic is going to be a critical take on the Indian political system.  The teaser of the film has already given a hint that Republic is about how the ruling powers are making civil servants their slaves and  how feudalism is very much alive in the constitutional systems.

It is learnt that Sai Dharam Tej and Deva Katta’ film rights have been sold to Zee Studios for a record deal. Zee has bagged the rights of  Republic and the latest gossip is that the deal is close to Rs 40 Cr for this film. This includes digital rights, satellite rights, dubbing rights and theatrical rights. With this deal, producers have struck gold with Republic even before the film’s release.

Sai Dharam Tej  starrer Republic is jointly backed by Bhagavan and J Pulla Rao under the JB Entertainments banner,  whereas it has the music by Mani Sharma.
