KGF Chapter 1, that released in 2018, broke several records and became a huge commercial success. Apart from the character of Rocky Bhai portrayed by Rocking Star Yash, KGF's villain Garuda is unforgettable from the movie. Ramachandra Raju alias Ram nailed the character of the lead antagonist despite being a newcomer.
Ram portraying the fierce and wicked Garuda's character in the first installment of KGF went on to become famous overnight. His debut movie earned him accolades and he soon became a popular face in the South. His performance as Garuda helped him in getting offers for several other films in the South. As reported earlier, the movies in his bag included one starring Jayam Ravi, Arjun Sarja, and also a Telugu flick.
Ending all speculations, Garuda aka Ram finally is making his debut in Tollywood. The Telugu flick will be helmed by director Ajay Bhupathi.
As per reports, Ram will be seen in Ajay's most ambitious project Maha Samudram which also stars Siddharth and Sharwanand in lead roles.
The makers have dropped Ram's first look from the movie in which he will be seen portraying the character of Dhanunjay. In the pic, Ram looks more violent than the character of Garuda and has sweated hard in getting the perfect body shape.
In the pic, Ram is flaunting his biceps in a half-sleeved shirt. And from the pic itself, it can be clearly stated that Ram's character will be a dominating one in the movie. Ram re-shared the post and he is quite excited about his character.
Actresses Aditi Rao Hydari and Anu Emmanuel will be seen as the female leads in the movie. The entire story of the film is set in the backdrop of Vizag. The team has reached the last phase of shooting and the makers will be announcing the release date soon. The movie will release in multiple languages.
Comparing the character of Garuda with KGF Chapter 2's antagonist, Adheera seems to be more powerful and destructive. However, Ram undoubtedly justified his character- Garuda and his faceoff scene with Yash at the end of the flick still makes movie watchers hold their breath.
It is pertinent to mention here that Ram was actually not an actor but a close associate of Yash whom KGF helmer Prashanth Neel spotted while discussing the script of KGF Chapter1 with Yash. It was then he received the proposal of audition for the role of Garuda. Ram took part in different workshops for about a year and put in huge efforts to get into the shoes of Garuda. Finally, he got the perfect body shape for portraying the character of the antagonist in the high-end action movie. Prashanth got impressed by his dedication and hard work and ultimately signed him for Garuda.
Yash and Ram know each other since many years and even talked about working together, which finally happened in KGF Chapter1.
