Venkatesh clapped the first shot of the film at the launch today. Virataparvam will be bankrolled by Suresh Daggubati and Sudhakar Cherukuri jointly. Check out photos from the official launch today:
Rana will be seen sporting a lean look in Virataparvam for which the Baahubali star has been working on. Rana was spotted recently at Karan Johar's birthday party and was seen in the look of the film. Check out few photos here:
To be directed by Venu Udugula, the film is said to be a period drama set in 90s. The project was locked many months ago but the shooting was delayed due to various reasons. Reportedly, Sai Pallavi had threatened to walk out of the project if the shooting is further delayed. This forced Rana Daggubati to make changes his schedule and confirm his dates for the Virataparvam since he wants Sai Pallavi to be part of the project, we hear.
Rana will also be seen in Haathi Mere Saathi which is said to be a tribute to the old cinema with the same title starring Rajesh Khanna. This Rana Daggubati starrer is being directed by Prabhu Solomon and will be a multi-lingual release in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.
Speaking about Sai Pallavi, the actress was last seen in NGK which starred Suriya in lead role and was directed by Selvaraghavan. The film received mixed reviews and turned out to be a mediocre affair at the box office.
