`Rani Ranamma` to expose society`s effect on people
Chennai: After making some of the best Telugu fantasy films such as ‘Arundhati’, Telugu filmmaker Kodi Ramakrishna is set to expose the ill effects of society on people`s lives in his upcoming action-thriller ‘Rani Ranamma’. However, he clarifies it is not about the situation in Sri Lanka.
He believes there is so much happening around us and that needs to be retold on the big screen.
"We have so many incidents happening around us that could be very well made into a film, but we always prefer making love stories. The story of the film will make one feel like it`s their own story because anybody can easily relate to it," Kodi Ramakrishna said.
"I will show how society can turn a common man into a beast through the film. Our lives depend on the society we live in," added the filmmaker who also made ‘Ammoru’ and ‘Devi Putrudu’.
The story is set against the backdrop of Sri Lanka, he said.
Does the story have anything to do with the ongoing controversy in Sri Lanka?
"It`s not about what is happening in Sri Lanka. It`s a fictional story set there for a particular reasons that will be revealed in the film. When people would watch the film, I`m sure they would understand why I chose to use Sri Lanka as a backdrop," he said.
Arjun Sarja and Lakshmi Rai play the lead in the film, while the rest of the cast will be finalised soon.
Produced by R. Ramachandra Raju, ‘Rani Ranamma’ will have music by S.A. Rajkumar.
