Its director and writer is Yata Satyanarayan. Producer of this film based on 'silent massacre' and BJP member Gudur Narayan Reddy had an exclusive conversation with Dainik Bhaskar.

During the interview, Gudur Narayan Reddy said- Making this film was a big challenge for me. I had to face many difficulties in making it. Many attempts were made to stop the shooting. He said- I was threatened with death several times during the shooting.

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) party had also threatened people associated with the film several times. He further said- I had received threats 1100 times. Such threats were given which I cannot even tell openly.

Gudur Narayana Reddy did not stop the shooting fearing any threat. Despite so many challenges, he completed the shooting of the film on time.

Gudur Narayan Reddy wants to be a part of history by making this film, because no one had the courage to make this film in so many years.

Gudur Narayana Reddy wanted to cast Kangana in the film
Kangana Ranaut also attended the trailer launch of 'Razakar'. Talking about Kangana, Narayan Reddy told that he wanted to cast Kangana in this film. For some reason he could not approach Kangana, but he wishes to work with Kangana in some future project.

Kangana is his favorite actress. Reddy likes Kangana's outspoken style. He says that Kangana is not afraid to speak the truth. This was the reason why he got the trailer of the film launched by Kangana.

Many actors refused to work in the film
Gudur Narayana Reddy said that he had initially asked many actors to work in the film. The actors refused to work in the film out of fear. He believed that working in this film would cause a lot of controversy. Because of this, many actors and actresses flatly refused to work in this film.

60 thousand people were tortured
Talking about the 'silent genocide', Gudur Reddy said that there were 60 thousand casualties. Women suffered a lot in this massacre. It is very difficult to show in a film the misbehavior that happened to so many people. Emphasizing on the heinous crime committed against women, he said that women and girls of all ages were raped. His honor was played with in front of his father and brother.

Another 'Razakar' should not be born – Gudur Narayan Reddy
Gudur Narayana Reddy wants to open the eyes of the youth by showing this story buried in history. They want that no other 'Razakar' should be born. Gudur Narayana Reddy while talking on Hindutva said that he wants to make all Hindus aware. Hindus never speak wrong about any religion.

He said- I have brought this story of history in front of everyone through cinema. I want what happened to never happen again. Gudoor Reddy has a problem with things like love jihad. They believe that your religion comes second, first you are an Indian. He has advised all the youth to remain fearless.

There was also a problem regarding the budget of the film
Filmmaker Narayana Reddy told that he had thought the budget of the film to be Rs 16 crores. According to this budget, he started preparing for the film. Then within no time the budget of the film reached 60 crores. He did not want to lack anything in the film. Because of this he handled the budget. He has not compromised in any way with the quality of the film.

Kangana Ranaut compared Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel to Lord Shiva at the trailer launch.
Kangana had said in the trailer launch event – We have always read about Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Nehru in our books, but there are many great people about whom we do not know. Like Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. He is compared to Lord Shiva. Just as Lord Shiva held Sati ji's body parts together, in the same way, the person who held our disintegrating India together after independence is Vallabhbhai Patel.

Hyderabad got independence after 396 days of India's independence. This happened because the Nizam of Hyderabad did not want to go with India, but the people there wanted to come with India. Tukde gang claims that we were a state built in pieces. There is a need to show history to such gangs. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel has united India. It is important to make such films so that we do not take our country for granted and can know the history of the country.
