'Yevadu Takkuva Kadu' with Lagadapati Vikram Sahidev as main lead

In 'Na Peru Surya: Na Illu India', Allu Arjun stunned the audience with his fantastic performance.  Alongside the Mega hero, we saw a youngster whose presence and performance in the climax sequences was heart touching.  He is Vikram Sahidev, who was seen as Anwar in the Bunny movie.  Earlier, he played Bunny's younger version in 'Race Gurram'.

The talented actor is currently doing a film as the main lead.  

Produced by Lagadapati Sridhar on Ramalakshmi Cine Creations and presented by Lagadapati Sirisha, the film's name is 'Yevadu Takkuva Kadu'.  It's coming with the caption 'A story of Brave Heart'.  Raghu Jaya is directing the movie.  Marking Holi, the makers have revealed the title and the First Look.  Vikram's powerful expression in the look is getting an encouraging response.

Producer lagadapati Sridhar says, "The caption 'A story of Brave Heart' is so apt for the character that Vikram is playing in our movie.  It's a new-age revenge drama.  As someone who impressed the audience as a child artist, Vikram Sahidev is now playing a distinct character.  Besides action, there is a beautiful teen love story too in the movie.  The entire shooting is completed.  We are hoping that this film will be a very good product under our banner and also in Vikram's career."
