Every moment working on this film was as exciting as it was challenging and we are happy to finally present it to audiences across India.”
Producer Dr Jayantilal Gada added, “SS Rajamouli’s Chatrapathi was an ideal project to reimagine for a Pan-India audience. Apart from introducing the extremely talented Sreenivas Bellamkonda to an entirely new market, the film also has all the essential components of a mainstream entertainer. We at Pen Studios are overjoyed to bring “Chatrapathi” to cinema enthusiasts all around the nation.”
