It's a season of biopics. While the biopic of Savitri, Mahanati, is having its blockbuster success and the biopic of legendary NTR is already on floors, all eyes are on forthcoming biopic of sportsperson Kodi Ramamurthy Naidu, one of the legendary wrestlers from South India who had got international acclaim in his times.
Baahubali star Rana Daggubati is gearing up to enter into the footsteps of Ramamurthy Naidu and a popular production house in the South in collaboration with a world-class studio would be bankrolling the film. The film is going to have a well-known filmmaker to wield the megaphone. The film will be made in Telugu and Hindi simultaneously.
Ramamurthu Naidu, the legendary wrestler, had several achievements under his belt. He had held an undefeated record of over 5000 bouts and was awarded the title of 'Indian Hercules and 'Kalayuga Bhima' by King George. The young Kaliyuga Bhima rose like a phoenix in the early 1900's, when the British Empirical rule was firmly established in India. He was a brave-heart who fought his battles from a sports ring. Wrestling and bodybuilding were natural passions that spurred him to become the undefeated champion of the wrestling world and fueled India's independence movement.
Rana said to have studied about Ramamurthy Naidu in his early days and was said to be very inspired. When the script of Kodi Ramamurthy Naidu has come to him, quite excited Rana readily given his nod for the film. More details are awaited. If all goes well, the film's shoot is likely to take off soon.
