The newly released poster from the film Madai Thiranthu/1945, featuring Rana Daggubati in a clean-shaven look has gone viral.
It is no secret that Rana, post-Baahubali, has a wide fan base across the country. His films such as The Ghazi Attack and Baahubali: the Conclusion which was released this year have turned out to be massive hits.
Now, the starâ€™s new look in his upcoming bilingual 1945 / Madai Thiranthu, which is being directed by Sathya Siva, has garnered the attention of the film buffs.
The film has Rana Daggubati playing a soldier and that explains his clean-shaven look. Touted to be a period flick set in the pre-Independence era, the film has Regina Cassandra playing his lady love while the rest of the star cast includes Sathyaraj, Nassar and RJ Balaji.
Written and directed by Sathyasiva who had directed the movie Kazhugu some years ago, the film is produced by SN Rajarajan under the banner K Productions.
Yuvan Shankar Raja has been roped in to compose the tunes for Madai Thiranthu / 1945 with Sathya wielding the camera and Gopi Krishna taking care of the editing.
According to reports, Madai Thiranthu / 1945 traces out freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose's Independence movement. Sets that depict the 1940s have been built where important scenes are being canned.
Posting a pic with his look in the film, Rana had tweeted: â€śAlright the beard gone!! Moving into another period!! Working on a new look for #1945. The first look will be out November!! #faceunderthebeardâ€ť(sic).
Ranaâ€™s last release was the Telugu movie Nene Raju Nene Mantri and he also has the Gautham Menon directorial Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta lined up for release soon.
