The film story revolves around Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao as a student leader , as a Minister, as the leader of Telangana movement, which is also referred as people’s movement and as a Chief Minister of the new State. KCR’s motivation and dedication behind Telangana movement are priceless. He leads a fast-unto-death, demanding the formation of new Telangana statehood and achieved it with the support of people.
“Few called him a separate state visionary. Few called him a regional fanatic who created a wedge between Telugu people. Few called him a dictator in a democratic system. Others called him a protector of democracy with the dictatorial approach. Few called him a fighting force, few called him a hasty man. Few called him a political genius. But for the four crore Telangana people, he was the charioteer with a goal… a great leader who made their dreams come true.” Said Madhura Sridhar in a press meet about the motivation behind the KCR biopic.
He said that as a filmmaker, he decided to bring this history onscreen. The shooting will commence on June 2, 2017 the Telangana formation day, and the film will be released on February 17, 2018 on the eve of KCR’s birthday. The pre-production works are going on now, he added. (NSS)
