Rakshit Atluri, who made fine debut in Telugu cinema with London Babulu, a remake of Vijay Sethupathi’s Aandavan Kattalai, proved his mettle as a performer with Palasa 1978, where he played a character Mohan Rao in different avatars with relative ease. His good work has deservedly earned him many offers in Telugu cinema. Nearly three of his films are gearing up for a release.

While his immediate release is Sasivadane alongside Komalee, directed by Sai Mohan Ubbana, he has two other films in his kitty - Narakasura and Operation Raavan. The glimpse of both the films are to be launched today. One of them, Narakasura, interestingly, is a pan-Indian film that’ll release in Telugu, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil on a grand scale.

The first glimpse of Narakasura, has Rakshit sporting long hair and beard, while being surrounded by characters with mythical references. There’s a trisulam placed in front of him while the people around him are the various manifestations of Lord Shiva, the destroyer. The glimpse makes it evident that the lead character is seeking redemption for the personal loss he has experienced.


A series of characters flash in front of Rakshit as a reminder of his motive behind the vengeance. Aparna Janardhan , Sangeerthana Vipin play the female leads in the film that also stars Shatru, Nasser, Charan Raj, Sriman, SS Kanchi, Gayatri Ravishankar, Tej Charan Raj, Kaartheek Saahas, Gara Raja Rao, Fish Venkat, Masth Ali, Bhanu teja, Lakshman, Ramu, Devangana, Pintu Sharma, Pramod Chaturvedi.

Narakasura is directed by Sebastian Noah Acosta Junior, who has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues. AIS Nawfal Raja scores the music for the film while Nani Chamidisetty cranks the camera. Ch Vamshee Krishna is the editor. The revenge saga is bankrolled by Dr. Ajja Sreenivas under Sumukha Creations and Ideal Filmmaker. T Series has acquired the music rights.
