Nara Chandrababu Naidu and YS Rajasekhar Reddy are claimed to be two of the revolutionary leaders Andhra Pradesh politics would never forget. Though there were a number of individual movies helmed based on major events of Chandrababu and YSR lives, there is no such film which pictured their journey together.
Filling the gap, director Deva Katta came up with an idea to fictionalize the tale of rivalry between the two leaders. Taking to social media, Deva Katta announced his next film with the working title ‘Indraprastham’ on Friday.
The capitative motion poster has the silhouettes of Chandrababu and YSR waving. The poster also has a line saying-‘Moralities change, the battle for power remains constant’ which grabbed the attention of cinephiles
“There are no two sides to TRUTH, there is only one side!”
Here’s the theme poster of #Indraprastham (working title). Produced by Harsha.V & @tchekuri under @ProodosP. Remotely inspired by YSR and NCBN friendship/journey, written and to be directed by @devakatta. pic.twitter.com/FfmQ59ILdi

The film is reportedly the semi-fictional take on the political journey of CBN and YSR who started their journey during a young age. The film will also showcase their journey in reshaping the landscape of Andhra Pradesh politics for 30 years.
Meanwhile, Proodos Productions which is bankrolling the film released a short video with Deva Katta’s voice enclosing what the picture is about.
