Madhura Sreedhar to Direct CM KCR’s Biopic


The biopic of KCR, the first Chief Minister of new state Telangana, has been doing the rounds for sometime now in the film fraternity, the latest is that the movie has got a bigger canvas as Pelli Choopulu team.

Director Madhura Sreedhar Reddy is gearing up for his next project. He announced his next film today. It would be a biopic of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who is also popularly known as KCR.

The shooting of this film will commence on 2nd June, 2017 on the Telangana State Formation Day. The film will released in 2018 on 17th February, which is KCR’s birthday. Raj Kandukuri will produce this film.

After listening to the tales narrated by my father who was part of the Telangana agitation in 1969 and watching the incidents of current time, the director in me gave sleepless nights. I did some research in this angle and met the Telangana and Samaikyandhra activists separately. I had Goosebumps when I heard the way the likes of NTR, Chandrababu Naidu, YSR, Sonia Gandhi, Chiranjeevi, Lagadapati Rajagopal, Venkaiah Naidu, L K Advani and Pawan Kalyan understood the Telangana agitation.

I discovered that the kind of challenges KCR faced were on par with what Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King faced during their movements. As a filmmaker, I decided to bring this history onscreen. The shooting will commence on June 2nd, 2017 the Telangana formation day and the film will release on February 17th, 2018 on the eve of KCR’s birthday.
