There have been speculations that Venkatesh Daggubati will play the lead role in director Gunasekhar’s Hiranyakasipa but the latest reports suggests that not Venkatesh, but Rana Daggubati will be seen in this upcoming big budget ambitious mythological project.
After considering many actors like Jr NTR and Venkatesh, Gunasekhar has finally roped in Rana Daggubati to play titular role in his magnum opus. Rana was also seen in Guansekhar’s last outing Rudhramadevi and his performance was appreciated by all. Though, the movie didn’t fared well at the box-office, no producer came forward to invest in his Hiranyakasipa. But after Rana came on board, it will be easy for Gunasekhar to collect funds for his film.
Apparently, Hiranyakasipa will be made on par with Hollywood and the makers have decided to rope in Hollywood technicians for the VFX work of film. The movie will be released in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi simultaneously.
Rana Daggubati was last seen in Nene Raju Nene Mantri. Though the movie clashed with 2 other biggies, it managed to get superb revenues. Kajal Aggarwal played the lead in NRNM.
