Star director Gunasekhar's last film is Rudhramadevi. Post the release of the film, the director announced that he would do a sequel but due to several reasons, he put the project aside. He then decided to bring the story of Hiranyakashyapa to the Telugu audiences.
After extensive research and pre-production work, the director broke his silence to announce the film officially to the world.
"Would like to share that I'm working on a mythological film 'Hiranyakashyapa' starring Rana Daggubati in the titular role. Extensive preproduction work is being done for the past 3 years for this one..that's right 3 YEARS! That's how invigorating this has been. More details & updates to follow soon." posted Gunasekhar on his twitter profile.
The film's shoot is expected to begin towards the end of the year.
