Actor Rana Daggubati and director Teja, who previously collaborated on the political drama ‘Nene Raju Nene Mantri,’ are teaming up again for their next project, ‘Rakshasa Raja.’ This upcoming film is set as a gritty period gangster drama taking place in 1930s British India.
Rana will be portraying a gangster character in this high-budget venture, showcasing a lean appearance and a distinct hairstyle reminiscent of that era. While Rana’s previous movie, ‘Nene Raju Nene Mantri,’ was a commercial success.
Rana ventured into diverse genres afterward with films like ‘Aranya,’ ‘Virata Parvam,’ and significant roles in ‘NTR’ biopic and ‘Bheemla Nayak.’ He was recently seen in the web series ‘Rana Naidu,’ alongside his uncle Venkatesh.
Although ‘Rakshasa Raja’ won’t primarily focus on India’s struggle for independence, it might touch upon the movement briefly. Detailed information about the film’s cast and crew is yet to be disclosed, but the anticipation for this project is mounting. Stay tuned for more updates on this intriguing gangster drama set against the backdrop of British colonial India.
