Director Krishna Vamsi, beyond the idea of success and failure, has delivered some of the most original films ever produced in Telugu cinema, right from Gulabi to Sindhooram to Ninne Pelladatha, Khadgam and Murari. Now, the filmmaker, many years after the Nagarjuna-Ramya Krishna starrer Chandralekha, is trying his hand at a remake. His next, Rangamarthanda, which is set to hit theatres soon, is the Telugu remake of the Marathi hit Nata Samrat, originally headlined by Nana Patekar.

Rangamarthanda is more an adaptation and less a remake, featuring Prakash Raj, Ramya Krishna and Brahmanandam in key roles. The film’s shoot was wrapped earlier in 2022 and is finishing all post-production formalities to ensure an early 2023 release. After launching the first look of Prakash Raj as Raghava Rao earlier on Wednesday, the team unveiled a glimpse of his female counterpart Ramya Krishna as Raju gaaru today. Raju gaaru and Ramya Krishna? This has already got us curious.

Launching the glimpse, Krishna Vamsi wrote, “Hi... With a great love n respect presenting the pan India fire, my dearest ammoru ever gorgeous @MERAMYAKRISHNAN in soft volcanic Raju gaaru.” Donning a beautiful blue sari paired with a pink blouse, with a huge bindi on her forehead, Ramya Krishna is at her elegant best in a traditional avatar. She is cast as Prakash Raj’s on-screen wife in Rangamarthanda.

Anasuya Bharadwaj, Aadarsh Balakrishna, Rahul Sipligunj, Shivathmika Rajashekar, Ali Reza play supporting roles in the film which has music by Ilaiyaraaja. Akella Siva Prasad is the dialogue writer for the film while Lakshmi Bhoopal has penned a shayari rendered by veteran star Chiranjeevi. Kalipu Madhu, S. Venkat Reddy have produced the film under Raja Shyamala Entertainments and Housefull Movies. Raj K Nalli is the cinematographer.
