“I narrated a few things in my life. Ram Gopal Varma researched and went on, to speak with several native folks to know more about my past and how I survived the most brutal attack”, Murali said.

Surekha said, “The trailer has reminded me of the dark days when we faced the toughest challenges in life.”

“The day on which my husband was subjected to an assault, there was blood everywhere. As I recall the incident, it still feels so dark. I was shell-shocked as I saw my husband in a blood pool,” Surekha said.

‘Konda’ stars Irra Mor, who has played Surekha, while actors Prudhviraj, Parvathi Arun, Prashanth, LB Sriram, Tulasi, ‘Jabardasth’ Ram Prasad, Abhilash Chowdhary, and others appear in important roles.
