Promising young hero Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas’ love for action films is known to all. He is making his Bollywood debut with a Chatrapathi remake being directed by VV Vinayak. The film’s shooting was commenced recently in Hyderabad.
In the meantime, Bellamkonda has signed another exciting project and it is announced officially through the title poster. Titled Stuartpuram Donga, the film is a biopic of ‘Tiger’ Nageswara Rao, a notorious and courageous thief of Stuartpuram in the 1970’s.
The life and times of Nageswara Rao, known for his smart way of escape from police and prison too, will come alive on the big screen. In fact, it was one such escape from a Chennai jail that gave him the moniker of ‘Tiger’. The infamous robber was finally shot dead by the police in 1987.
This piece of information may be a surprise for the starters that Nageswara Rao’s photo still hangs at the main door of his house in Stuartpuram and it is a popular tourist spot.
In short, the life story of ‘Tiger’ Nageswara Rao is a perfect cinema material and Bellamkonda is obviously the right choice for ‘Stuartpuram Donga’. It indeed is an apt title for the film on the most wanted thief.
Coming to the title poster, a steam train can be seen emitting smoke, as it passes a village, perhaps Stuartpuram. As we can see in the poster, the film’s shooting starts soon.
Mass director VV Vinayak’s protégé KS will be helming it as his debut directorial venture, wherein producer Bellamkonda Suresh of the prestigious banner Sree Lakshmi Narasimha Productions is making a comeback to film production and Stuartpuram Donga will be made on large scale.
A wonderful script is prepared and all the required commercial ingredients are included in the right proportions. Vennelakanti Brothers are the writers for the film. Since the story is set in the 70s and 80s, popular technicians are zeroed in to be part of this high-budget entertainer.
Melody Brahma Mani Sharma will score music. Shyam K Naidu handles the camera, while Thammiraju is the editor and AS Prakash is the art director.
Other details of the project will be unveiled soon.
