Superstar Ravi Teja’s upcoming all-India project Tiger Nageswara Rao got bigger as Anupam Kher recently joined the ensemble cast in a ‘powerful’ role. The makers announced Kher’s association through a social media post while also teasing the actor’s first look from the project.
Directed by Vamsee, the film comes as a biopic on Tiger Nageswara Rao, a notorious thief of Stuartpuram in the 1970s. He was known for sneakily escaping from police custody and his brilliant escape from a Chennai jail in the 1970s earned him the title “Tiger”.
