Ram Gopal Varma's 'Konda', which is a biopic on Konda Murali and Konda Surekha from Warangal, is hitting the cinemas on June 23. The news is that Prashanth Karthi, who has been Murali's close aide for many years, has played a Naxalite named RK in the movie.
An intense and authentic character, RK will be a strategist and a commander who is called Polam Sudharshan in the movie.
'Konda' is not Prashanth Karthi's first movie. "But 'Konda' is my most challenging one till date. The audience will surely connect with it. RK has a big influence on Murali's life," the actor says.
RK's wife Bharatakka and his friends gave RGV some valuable inputs. That helped the director hone the character in an authentic way. "I have undergone a tremendous makeover as well. A team from Mumbai honed my look," the actor adds, saying that his character's thinking and ideology will impress the audience.
The film has Thrigun as Murali and Irra Mor as Surekha.
