The upcoming rural action drama, Peddha Kapu 1, has been making a huge buzz of late and one of the reasons is undoubtedly the film’s title which is named after a prominent caste in the twin Telugu states. However, the film’s hero, debutant Virat Karrna, claims that Peddha Kapu is not about casteism.
In a latest interview, Virat said that Peddha Kapu is not about casteism but about the rise of a common man in a village. The film is all about how a youngster fights against oppression in the village,” Virat said. The young Hero went on to reveal that Peddha Kapu is set in the 1990s in a village near Rajahmundry. The debut actor further revealed that he had spent a lot of time in a Godavari village and interacted with the locals to get into the skin of his character.
Also starring Pragathi Srivastava as the leading lady, Peddha Kapu 1 is slated for release in cinemas worldwide on September 29. The Sreekanth Addala directorial is produced by Akhanda maker Miryala Ravinder Reddy under Dwaraka Creations banner.
