Telugu historical film ‘Rudramadevi’, directed by Gunasekhar and starring Anushka Shetty, Allu Arjun, Rana Daggubati, Vikramjeet Virk, Prakash Raj, Krishnam Raju, Nithya Menon, Baba Sehgal and Catherine Tresa.[ will release on September 4, 2015 after much delay.
Filmmaker Gunasekhar says the story of Rudhramadevi, the 13th-century queen of Kakatiya dynasty, has fascinated him since his school days when he first heard about her. It is only natural then that he decided to make a film on her.
“I read about Rudhramadevi in school and since then her inspiring story has stayed with me. Her valour fascinated me so much that when I became a filmmaker, I decided to make a film on her story at any cost,” said Gunasekhar.
After months of delay, the film that features Anushka Shetty in the lead, will finally hit the screens on September 4.
“We’re in the final leg of post-production but we will definitely arrive on time. Besides Telugu, we also plan to release the film in Tamil and Malayalam. The Hindi version will be released at a later stage,” he said.
