Top director to direct Rana's film
Rana Daggubati will play the role of legendary wrestler and body-builder Kodi Rammurthy Naidu in one of his upcoming movies. Naidu lived in pre-Independence India.
A huge fan of the wrestler, the 'Baahubali' actor is keen on perfecting his role on the big screen. With 'Mahanati' becoming a big hit, the film could see an ambitious release in Telugu and Tamil. "Naidu had an undefeated record of over 5000 bouts. Bodybuilding spurred him to become the undefeated champion of the wrestling world and fueled India’s independence movement," a statement from Rana's camp says.
A top director is in talks. His name has been kept under the wraps. The film will be bankrolled by a top production house in the South and a major international studio.
