Virata Parvam, which has Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles, will be a romance film, but will also have a lot of action and politics included to make the narration interesting, say sources. The buzz is that the filmmakers have roped in the Hollywood stunt director Stefan Richter to choreograph the action sequences. Virata Parvam will have some high octane stunt sequences and its filmmakers were keen on having an experienced stunt director to take care of it so that the scenes come out realistically. Incidentally, Stefan Richter had choreographed the stunts for the Bollywood flick Uri: The Surgical Strike.
The film has Rana Daggubati playing a cop while Sai Pallavi will be seen as a Naxalite in love with the cop. Sai Pallavi is undergoing some vigorous training for the film.
She is getting trained in a range of combat skills to play a naxalite. The makers want to ensure that she gets the body language right, especially in action scenes that show combing operations.
According to the buzz doing rounds, Rana will be sporting a lean look for his upcoming film Virata Parvam 1992. As this is a period film, the actor was required to shed weight, say sources. The film is directed by Venu Udugula of Naadi Needi Oke Kadha fame. Tabu, Priyamani, Eswari Rao and Zareena Wahab have been roped in to play the supporting roles in it. The official launch of Virata Parvam happened a couple of months ago with the veteran actor Venkatesh sounding the clapboard and the Addanki MLA Gottipati Ravi switching on the camera.
Virata Parvam is bankrolled by Ranaâ€™s father Suresh Babu Daggubati in association with Sudhakar Cherukuri. Suresh Bobbili has been roped in to compose music for this flick.
Rana, who has been out of action for the last five months due to health issues, will be joining the sets of Virata Parvam in December.
