Telugu magnum opus “Rudhramadevi”, which has been on floors for over two years, has finally been wrapped up. Director Gunasekhar says he’s delighted that they’ve completed the project on time.

“It was an epic journey. I’m glad that we have finally completed the shooting of ‘Rudhramadevi’ on time. We are planning to release it in December. The project was supposed to take a lot of time. Thankfully, the film wasn’t delayed due to any reasons even though we faced a lot of obstacles along the way. We are currently busy with the post-production working involving 3D technology,” Gunasekhar said.

“Rudhramadevi” is the story of a fierce woman ruler of Kakatiya dynasty. Anushka Shetty, who plays the reigning queen, said “it was honour to play the titular role. Learnt sword-fighting and horse-riding for the role. Everyone on the set has worked hard to produce the best output. Hats off to Gunasekhar sir for his guts to handle a ferocious subject like ‘Rudhramadevi’,” posted Anushka recently on her Facebook page.

The film features an ensemble cast of Allu Arjun, Rana Daggubati, Prakash Raj, Baba Sehegal, Krishnam Raju, Catherine Tresa and Aditi Chengappa in important roles.
