Srikanth has signed an upcoming movie which has been titled as Telangana Devudu and this is based on the life of Telangana Chief Minister (KCR) Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao. Recently during the media interaction Srikanth opened up about his political drama Telangana Devudu and said, “The film is all about K Chandrasekar Rao’s life, from his childhood to him becoming the Chief Minister of Telangana, and I play Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao. I have watched so many videos of Telangana CM and observed his body language. Actor Utej helped me with my Telangana accent.”
The sources have also confirmed the news that though Srikanth is playing the lead role but his character in the film isn’t called Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao. He will be seen playing the role of Vijay Dev and the audiences will be able to identify the aspects of Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao as well as other political leaders in Srikanth’s character.
Telangana Devudu is helmed by Harish Vadityal and produced by Mohammad Zakir Usman. The movie is on the verge of completion. It is heard that the makers are planning to wrap up the entire shoot in 10 more days. They are planning to release this political drama before Telangana elections. Jishan, Brahmanandam, Suman, Namala Murthy, Kedar Shankar, Posani Krishna Murali, Ali, Surya, Pragathi, Prabhavathi, Thotapalli Madhu and Kotesh Manav are playing the supporting roles.
Apart from Telangana Devudu, Srikanth will also be seen in Operation 2019, which revolves around the political circles of Andhra Pradesh. The makers are confident that Operation 2019 will grab the attention of audiences.
Operation 2019 is set against a political backdrop, which has a lot of satire and commentary on the current state of politics. The movie is all about the story of a regular, moral man with good ideologies who wants to serve people.
