The elated Aditi Chengappa took to her Twitter page to share the news about her casting for the movie Rudhramadevi. The actress tweeted, "Just signed director Gunasekhar's 'Rudhramadevi'! Can't think of a better way to get back into Telugu films! Woohoo! Here I come."
Directed and produced by Gunasekhar, Rudhramadevi will narrate the story of one of the most prominent women rulers of Kakatiya dynasty. The film also features Prakash Raj, Krishnam Raju, Hamsa Nandini, Ravi Babu and Madhumitha in important roles. Maestro Illayaraja has been roped in to compose the music for the film, which will have Thota Tharani's art direction and Sreekar Prasad's editing.
