On the occasion of actress Sai Pallavi's birthday, the makers of Virataparvam unveiled a special poster.

In the poster, she's seen sitting under what looks like a giant pillar that has Communist symbol mounted on it.  

Directed by Venu Udugala, Viraataparvam also stars Rana Daggubati, Priyamani and Nandita Das in key roles. The film sheds light on the Naxal movement, specifically the moral dilemma that prevailed during the last decade.  

If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, Daggubati plays a cop in the film while Sai Pallavi will be seen as a Naxal. The film marks the maiden collaboration of both stars.

In her recent interview with CinemaExpress.com, actress Priyamani confirmed she plays a Naxalite in the movie.

"Yes, I am playing a Naxalite. It’s going to be a different kind of film altogether. The only thing I can share at the moment is that it’s a true story,” Priyamani said, confirming she’s also part of Venkatesh-starrer Naarappa, the Telugu remake of Tamil film Asuran (2019).

The film marks Nandita Das's return to Telugu cinema after a decade. On joining the sets, Das had said that she’s both nervous as well thrilled to be shooting in a language after a long gap.

“I am doing the film for the script, the director’s vision and the role. Had no idea who I was replacing and how does it matter. In Hyderabad, started shooting for the film. Nervous about speaking Telugu,” Das said in a statement.  

“I’m shooting for a film, that too in a language I speak after over a decade! But once I was on set, the whole atmosphere brought back the joy of being part of strong stories without having the responsibilities of being the director,” she said.
