Nene Raju Nene Mantri to depict political issues of Telugu states
Probably, stung by the drug scandal, T-town dream merchants seem to be in a mood to pay back. A hard-hitting political thriller Nene Raju Nene Mantri all set to expose corruption and flip-flops of governments in two Telugu states, albeit, in reel-life.
Teja, who is known for taking up controversial themes, ala RGV, has weaved a tale of a commoner who revolts against the system and reportedly rises to become the Chief Minister with his brain and brawn power.
A source close to the unit said, “It is fight of a common man against corrupt, inefficient political system and hurls potshots against CMs, opposition leaders and even turncoat MLAs in both the states in this political thriller.” With next-gen star Rana playing ‘Jogendra’ who is triggered to take the powers-that-be after his wife is insulted by a sarpanch to become the head of the state, by bribing and threatening lawmakers to support him.
Apart from making scathing remarks against political class, another hallmark of ‘Nene Raju Nene Mantri‘ is that is reportedly a story of a chief minister who is caught between two woman — one being his wife (played by Kajal Aggarwal) and another girl a TV channel boss and his publicist (played by Catherine) – which is loosely inspired by the life of legendary Tamil star MGR and his issues with his wife (the late V N Janaki) and political heir and the late actress-turned-politician J Jayalalithaa.
