Prasanth Varma shot to fame as a director when he directed the off beat yet critically acclaimed movie Awe! which was based on a multiple personality disorder. The movie with its ensemble cast managed to captivate audiences and sensitize the public about mental health disorders and how they need to be taken seriously.
Prasanth Varma is back once again with another script which is a new concept and one which may resonate well with the Telugu audiences. The movie is reportedly based on the current Coronavirus pandemic which is spreading very rapidly all over the world. Prasanth Varma finally revealed the motion poster of the movie on social media and from the looks of it, the movie may be based in the city of Kurnool. The poster shows us a view of Kurnool fort street from the mouth of a predator and people lying dead in the street.
