After Rana Daggubati’s menacing act as Bhallaladeva in Baahubali and a righteous Lt. Commander Arjun Verma in The Ghazi Attack, he will be seen flaunting tremendous attitude as Jogendra in Nene Raju, Nene Mantri.
In this Teja-directed political drama, Rana will play a ruthless and fearless politician. Talking about the film, Rana said that it’s going to be compelling and thought-provoking, and it’s being made by Teja with sheer brilliance.
The film also stars Kajal Aggarwal and Catherine Tresa as the two leading ladies, while Ashutosh Rana will be seen playing the antagonist.
Teja had been waiting for nearly two years to make this project with Rana, who was busy juggling between Baahubali and other commitments in the last few years. It is believed that Catherine, last seen in Arya’s forest-based thriller Kadamban, plays a character with negative shades in the film.
Being produced by Suresh Babu, the film will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam. Talking about the project, producer Suresh said in a statement, “After listening to Teja’s script, I felt that it will be a character which will present Rana in a whole new avatar with immense diversity.”
