Baahubali’ star, Rana Daggubati is soon to essay the role of South India’s greatest strongman and wrestler – Kodi Rammurthy Naidu. With an undefeated record of over 5000 bouts, Kodi Rammurthy Naidu was awarded the title of ’Indian Hercules and ‘Kalayuga Bhima’ by King George. The young Kaliyuga Bhima rose like a phoenix in the early 1900’s, when the British Empirical rule was firmly established in India. He was a brave-heart who fought his battles from a sports ring. Wrestling and bodybuilding were natural passions that spurred him to become the undefeated champion of the wrestling world and fueled India’s independence movement.
Rana Daggubati became a huge fan of Kodi Ramamurthy Naidu as he grew up reading about him in text books. It would be a dream role for the Baahubali star and a fitting tribute to the legendary wrestler from South India.
