Venkatesh Daggubati’s much-anticipated movie ‘Narappa’ has taken the OTT route. While the news brings cheers to the Telugu audiences, the makers aren’t a cheerful lot due to the impending stalemate continuing between exhibitors and film producers.
Announcing the news on his Twitter page on Monday, actor Venkatesh wrote, “All my well-wishers and fans have been eagerly waiting to watch our film, #Narappa. Your love towards this film has been overwhelming for me and the team, who always ensured to go an extra mile just like Narappa.”
‘Narappa’ is among the big-budget flicks that are meant to release on the big screen post pandemic. The movie waited all through the pandemic and was about to release in theatres. However, the theatres in both the Telugu States haven’t started functioning yet due to the demands of exhibitors.
‘Narappa’ is the joint production of Suresh Productions Pvt Ltd and V Creations banners. Sreekanth Addala has directed the movie while Suresh Babu and Kalaippuli S Thanu have jointly produced it.
Award-winning actor Priyamani plays the role of Sundaramma, wife of Narappa. A remake of the Tamil original ‘Asuran’, the Telugu film was shot in Anantapur and some parts of Tamil Nadu.
Other characters in the movie include Karthik Ratnam, Rao Ramesh and Rajeev Kanakala. Cinematography is by Shyam K Naidu while Mani Sharma scored the music for this action entertainer.
