Mahesh Babu launches the trailer of Allari Naresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar starrer Naandhi

Debutant director Vijay Kanakamedala’s upcoming Allari Naresh and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar starrer Naandhi tackles with a less-spoken subject.

The trailer for the film which is scheduled to release on February 19 was launched by Mahesh Babu on Saturday. Wishing his Maharshi co-star good wishes for the project, the Sarkaru Vaari Paata star wrote on his social media, “Happy to unveil the trailer of #Naandhi!! Looks intense… Wishing @allarinaresh and the entire team a blockbuster success

The trailer of Naandhi sees Allari Naresh play a prisoner who is accused of murdering someone. His lawyer, played by Varalaxmi, questions the court why her client is suffering in prison as an under-trial prisoner since years even as his parents claim his innocence to the media. The film touches upon the topics of custodial deaths, police brutality and more. The actor even went nude for one scene in the film, which heart-wrenchingly shows him being tortured.

Music for Naandhi has been composed by Sricharan Pakala while Sid has handled the camera. Story for the film is penned by Toom Venkat and dialogues are by Abburi Ravi. Satish Vegesna has bankrolled the film under SV2 Entertainment banner. Apart from Naresh and Varalaxmi, the film also sees Navami, Harish Uthaman, Pravin, Priyadarshi, Devi Prasad, Vinay Varma, CL Narsimha Rao, Srikanth Iyengar, Ramesh Reddy, Chakrapani, Grigneswara Rao, Rajyalakshmi, Mani Chandana and Pramodhini in key roles.
