With the teaser of 'Pitta Kathalu' out, it is now known that Netflix is up for something big. So far, no Telugu original on the OTT space has pulled off a major casting and technical coup of this sort.
Casting: Shruti Haasan, Amala Paul, Lakshmi Manchu, Eesha Rebba, and Jagapathi Babu are headlining the four-part anthology.
The bigger feat lies in getting the likes of Nag Ashwin of 'Mahanati' fame on board to direct the stories. Even Tharun Bhascker, who is a star director, is part of the anthology. The two other stories are directed by Nandini Reddy and Sankalp Reddy. Each of these filmmakers is a mainstream one, who stepped into the OTT segment only because Netflix invested big-time.
It will now be difficult for others to outdo this feat.
