After a long gap, Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni, of Arka Mediaworks, the visionary producers behind India’s magnus opus Baahubali have teamed up with Venkatesh Maha to produce the Telugu remake of Faahad Fasil’s Malayalam hit Maheshinte Prathikaram.
The video announcement of the film titled Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya was released today. Actor Satyadev Kancharana, who is high on the success of web series G.O.D, and the film Brochevarevarura is the hero in this lighthearted story.
