Amid a wave of biopics releasing across the country, the Telugu film Devineni is also making its presence felt. Ramu Rathode is producing this action flick under R T R Films banner, based on the lives of the two controversial political leaders, who hailed from Vijayawada in the 80s, Devineni and Vangaveeti Ranga. Filmmaker Sivanagu is leaving no stone unturned to make this a realistic drama. While Nandamuri Tarakaratna plays Devineni in the same, Santosham magazine editor, journalist Suresh Kondeti is on board to essay the role of Vangaveeti Ranga. The first look releases of both characters have met with impressive responses upon their release, the makers say.
Now, the production team has also released the character look of Ratna Kumari, the wife of Vangaveeti Ranga, played by Tamilnadu based-actress Dhruvatara whose expressions have caught the fascination of many. The look conveys the association that Ranga had shared with his better half perfectly. Ratna Kumari is known to have stood by Ranga through the thick and thin of his political stint. Interestingly, even though Ranga has often been projected as a messiah of the Kapus, he married Ratna Kumari belonging to another caste, proving that the leader wasn’t casteist after all. A major portion of Devineni has been wrapped up. Two more brief schedules and the film shoot will be done, added the producers.
