If the rumours in the Filmnagar are to be believed, Gunasekhar is trying hard to rope in Mahesh Babu for a guest role in Rudramma Devi. After the debacle of Sainikudu, Mahesh is hesitant to give nod for the role but the distinction of his first historical role is tempting the actor. Gunasekhar and Mahesh Babu’s combination has yielded a super hit movie, Okkadu and a disaster, Sainikudu.
The principal shooting of Rudrama Devi began few days ago and almost all the actors and actresses are undergoing rigorous training in horse riding and sword fighting. The film has Anushka, Rana in lead roles and Krishnam Raju, Prakash Raj, Nathalia Kaur, Aditi Chengappa, Hamsa Nandini, Zara Shah, Jayaprakash Reddy will play other important roles. Thota Tharani is the art director and Ajay Vincent is the cinematographer. Ilayaraja is the music composer.
