Anand Ravi gets in shape for Zindabad
The writer-director has been training to get in shape for his role in the upcoming social drama
Writer-turned-director Anand Ravi, last seen in the critically acclaimed drama Napoleon – The man who lost his shadow, has been sweating it out at the gym for his new film Zindabad. Touted to be a social drama, the film carries an interesting tagline -- ‘The shout of innocence’ -- and shows Anand Ravi as the worker of a political party.
“I have lost 10 kilos and have toned down my body to get into the skin of the character of a party worker, who realises the importance of the elections and the value of his vote. The film touches upon several social, contemporary political issues and promises to be a commercial entertainer. The principal shooting will commence in July,” shares Ravi.
Produced by PL Creations, Zindabad marks the directorial debut of Prasad Nallapati, a US-based filmmaker. The female lead and the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.
