Few called him a separate state visionary. Few called him a regional fanatic who created a wedge between Telugu people. Few called him a dictator in a democratic system. Others called him a protector of democracy with dictatorial approach. Few called him a fighting force, few called him a hasty man. Few called him a political genius. But for the 4 crore Telangana people, he was the charioteer with a goal… a great leader who made their dreams come true.
It didn’t matter as to who said what and who thought what, he simply went ahead with his movement. This is the history we witnessed and we are now witnessing the present. The moment three letters KCR became the address for Telangana movement, the entire nation began seeing a positive side in people’s movement.
Madhura Sreedhar said, “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 February 17th 2018 on the eve of KCR’s birthday and the film will release on June 2nd, 2018 the Telangana formation day. The film will be produced by Raj Kandukuri on his home banner Dharmapada Creations.”
