Two superstars from South India sharing screens. Yes! it’s happening.
Venkatesh Daggubati and Rana Daggubati are all set to give us goosebumps all over in their upcoming action-packed Netflix series Rana Naidu. (Quick FYI- Venkatesh Daggubati is Rana’s uncle in real life)
An adaptation of the popular American series, Ray Donovan, Rana Naidu premieres on March 10. The series is directed by Karan Anshuman and Suparn Varma and is produced by Sunder Aaron, Karan Anshuman, Vishakha Joshi, Laura Mishra, and Sumit Shukla.
On Instagram, Tuesday, Rana shared the trailer which he captioned, “He operates in the shadows, but now, a shadow from his past is about to return and shake his world to its core! Watch this action-packed saga unfold in #RanaNaidu on March 10!.”
The series follows the life of Rana Naidu (Rana Daggubati) the ultimate saviour from problems for the whole of Bollywood but as a son, he cannot fix his tense equation with his estranged father – Naidu (Venkatesh Daggubati).
At the press conference of the trailer launch, Rana said, “This project has been a long-time coming and it’s special for so many reasons. It’s not only my first collaboration with Netflix but also with my uncle, Venky. It has been an enriching experience working with Sunder (Aaron,) Karan (Anshuman), and Suparn (Varma) on this project and I am glad Rana Naidu turned out the way it has. The entire cast and crew have put in a lot of hard work into the series and I am confident that the audiences will love it!”
He added, “Playing the role of Rana Naidu was exceptionally challenging. He’s a complex character with a deep emotional connection to his family, but also struggles with his relationship with his father. And, amidst all this drama is Rana’s professional journey and what it requires of him. I can’t wait for everyone to experience the world of Rana, Naga, and everything in between!”
Venkatesh Daggubati said, “I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with my dear nephew for the first time for a show as exciting as Rana Naidu. Portraying the character of Naga is an entirely new experience for me, as I have never come across a character like this before. Naga is a refreshing change, with his playful demeanor that stands in stark contrast to Rana’s more intense personality. This character is witty, charismatic, and layered. I’m excited for my fans to tell me what they think as this is a first for me in many ways. And, working with this team of talented directors and producers on the series has been a truly wonderful experience.”
Surveen Chawla and Sushant Singh are seen in pivotal roles in the trailer. Abhishek Banerjee, Suchitra Pillai, Gaurav Chopra, Ashish Vidyarthi, and Rajesh Jais are also a part of ‘Rana Naidu’.
