Rana Daggubati, Venkatesh in web series titled LTTE based on  Rajiv Gandhi's assassination
While buzz around the collaboration of Venki-Rana combination has been around for a long time , it looks like they are finally set to team up for a web series that was earlier announced as a film, Asphota – The Human Bomb, based on the events surrounding Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination.

Noted Kannada filmmaker AMR Ramesh, known for controversial films such as Cyanide and Attahasa, had announced not long ago a film on the assassination of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and it was titled Asphota – The Human Bomb. The latest development on that front is that Ramesh has decided to make the film into a multi-lingual web series and has roped in actors Venkatesh and his nephew Rana Daggubati to play crucial roles.Reports suggest that since the story requires more screen time for narration, Ramesh felt it’d make sense to make it into a web series that spans a few seasons and it will be called . While the first season will focus on Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination, the subsequent ones will be about the rise of LTTE and its late chief V Prabhakaran.

Meanwhile, Rana will wrap up work on upcoming bilingual period war drama, 1945, being directed by Sathya Siva in Tamil and Telugu. In the film, he plays a soldier in Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army. He also has another period film in which he will play Travancore king Marthanda Varma. Next year, he will also be seen in the modern-day adaptation of Haathi Mere Saathi. Venkatesh, on the other hand, will work with director Teja on a yet-untitled Telugu film.

It is through this web series Rana and his uncle Venkatesh are set to share screen space for the first time. Interestingly, they are likely to join hands for the Telugu remake of Tamil blockbuster Vikram Vedha but the project is yet to be officially announced and the process might take a while.The dagubati family is surely going places.Wishing them a great success in 2018.
