Speaking about the film’s story, Prasanth had said, “Zombie Reddy kick-off point will be the coronavirus pandemic but it delves into something much beyond that. I began researching for the film in January, way before the pandemic hit India. But we’ve made changes to the story since then. The film will follow none of the commercial film tropes. The film will be set in Kurnool (sic.)”
Zombie Reddy correlates with Coronavirus and showcases how the virus spreads at an alarming rate across the globe and offers a glimpse into the worst-case scenario. Movies about pandemics are not new with Hollywood already making Contagion, and the Malayalam movie Virus, which was based on the Nipah virus outbreak.
