The teaser of Nani’s upcoming Telugu revenge thriller Dasara was released on Monday. Going by the visuals, the film looks like a rooted story about one guy from a small village rising up to fight for his people. The film also has a heavy Pushpa flavour in its setting but still stands out with its own moments.
The movie is set against the backdrop of Singareni coal mines near Godavarikhani in Telangana. Nani has pinned high hopes on the film. He had said in a recent press interaction that Dasara will be a career-defining film for him. He said, “For a lot of people who’ve said I don’t work out of my comfort zone, this will be the answer.
It’s a project that I have great expectations from and I’m sure audiences won’t be disappointed.” Nani had two releases as a producer last year. He bankrolled the Telugu anthology Meet Cute, which was directed by his sister. He also produced Telugu investigative thriller HIT 2, which featured him in a cameo.
