In Chandee, Priyamani plays the fourth generation daughter of Alluri Seetharamaraju and she stands up against all the evil activities in the society. According to director Samudra, she is modern-day Alluri in the film. Priyamani fights against government lands and SEZ’s, which are sanctioned but never used by public.

However, he is extremely happy with Priya and her performance because she has surpassed their expectations on several occasions throughout the film.
