Actress-turned-politician Ramya is all set to make her comeback with "Nagarahavu." The upcoming movie is directed by leading Telugu filmmaker Kodi Ramakrishna of "Arundhathi" fame.

Ramya was last seen in D Rajendra Babu's "Aryan." The actress had taken a break from films after becoming a Member of Parliament from Mandya constituency in 2013. Since then, the 33-year-old has not taken up any project and opted out of a few films that she had signed before.

However, one movie that remained in her kitty is "Nagarahavu," which has Diganth in a key role. This film was not shelved and the project was only delayed due to the director's ill health. Now, it is almost ready for the release and the flick has started creating a lot of positive buzz around it.

The latest report on The New Indian Express says that Ramya will be seen in the role of a snake in "Nagarahavu" along with late actor Vishnuvardhan. They will be seen in 120-feet and 140-feet serpents, respectively, in the flick. 

Meanwhile, the makers of "Nagarahavu" are planning to release a teaser from the movie on May 30. "The teaser will give the glimpse of Nagarahavu and the CG work that has been done in the film, which is probably the first time in Kannada cinema," The New Indian Express quoted co-director Yogesh M as saying.

The audio and trailer of "Nagarahavu" will be released in June and the movie will be out in July.

It has to be noted that this is the third movie with the title "Nagarahavu" that is hitting screens in Sandalwood. The first movie was a 1972 classic, directed by late Puttana Kanagal and the film starred Vishnuvardhan. It had given a major break to the actor. In 2002, Upendra borrowed the name for his Kannada remake of Bollywood's "Baazigar."

3D Poster
A 3D poster of Vishnuvardhan from the movie is garnering positive response after it was nominated at Lenticular Print Awards, the largest printing equipment exhibition in the world held every three years in Germany. In order to reach out to the large audience, 3D standees of Vishnuvardhan have been placed in over 100 theatres in Karnataka and the cine-goers across the state are taking selfies with it.

Celebrities like Darshan, Sudeep, Prem, Upendra and many others joined them in taking selfies, which is giving a good publicity to the film.
