Ravi Teja to 'fight' in Chambal

Jun 7, 2006 B. Anuradha

Hyderabad, June 7 (IANS) After smashing hits "Simhadri", "Sye", and "Chatrapati", hat-trick director Rajamouli has teamed up with action star Ravi Teja to deliver an anger-driven film in "Vikramarkudu".

"Ravi plays a dual role - one character is designed to my taste while the other one would be in typical Ravi style," says the director, who is choosy about his backdrops.

After Kerala in "Simhadri" and Sri Lanka in "Chatrapati", Rajamouli now sets his story in Chambal Valley. The film tells the tale of a young man who sets out to the valley in search of his brother and problems he encounters thereafter.

The story has been penned by director's father and famed writer Vijayendraprasad. The author claims that his story is tailor-made for Ravi and will not disappoint his fans.

Ravi, who bounced back with "Bhadra" but followed it up with flop "Shock", looks forward to this film. "It's an interesting script and both the roles are well-defined," says the star.

He describes Rajamouli as "a very demanding perfectionist."

Glam girl Anuska of "Super" and "Mahanandi" fame plays the female lead. "It's a beautiful role with good scope for performance," says the yoga-trainer-turned-actress.

Composer Keeravani, who gifted Rajamouli musical hits like "Simhadri" and "Chatrapati", promises a "delightful album".

The director, who created larger-than-life roles for stars like NTR Junior and Prabhas, seems to have etched out an even bigger role for Ravi. It is to be seen if the gamble pays off for producer Kumar Choudury.
