Titled Seetaramaraju -- A True Warrior, the film produced under Risali Film Academy and Studio banner will go on floors in March and is slated for release in August.
"The life of Alluri Seetarama Raju provides inspiration to youngsters. We will shoot the film Visakhapatnam, Kakinada, Rajahmundry and in the agency area from March onwards. The film is replete with special effects and the VFX work is underway. Besides the circumstances that lead to the rebellion, we are also making efforts to show the mystery surrounding the death of Alluri through this film.
