Nandita Das thrilled about returning to Telugu cinema

Directed by Venu Udugala, Virataparvam stars Rana and Sai Pallavi in lead roles

Published: 28th August 2019

Nandita Das, who is making a comeback to the Telugu industry after a decade with the upcoming film Virataparvam, is thrilled and nervous about her return with the Rana Daggubati-starrer.

Nandita, who has started shooting for the film, stated that she agreed to do the role trusting the director's vision. "I am doing the film for the script, the director's vision and the role. Had no idea who I was replacing. And how does it matter? I'm in Hyderabad, have started shooting for the film. And I'm nervous about speaking Telugu," she said in a statement.

Directed by Venu Udugala, Virataparvam stars Rana and Sai Pallavi in lead roles. "I'm shooting for a film, that too in a language I speak after over a decade! But once I was on set, the whole atmosphere brought back the joy of being part of strong stories without having the responsibilities of being the director," she said.

"It's a character I can relate to a lot. The director and the crew were really professional and friendly, and it was an absolute delight to work with Sai Pallavi — an amazing actor and person. I look forward to working with Rana Daggubati in the second schedule," she added.

Based in the 1990s, the film sheds light on the Maoist movement.
