Nani writes emotional post after watching Sai Dharam Tej’s Republic: “Deva Katta’s announcement that he’s back”

Nani watched a special screening of Sai Dharam Tej’s latest film Republic, which is set to hit theaters this Friday. Blown away by the film, the star praised Tej and director Deva Katta. “Republic under surveillance. For all the kindness that @IamSaiDharamTej has shown to everyone around him, it has come back in the form of your prayers and it is coming back stronger in the form of #REPUBLIC. This is @devakatta’s announcement that he’s back. Congratulations to the team (sic), “he wrote on his Twitter account.

Aside from Nani, others who watched Republic ahead of its theatrical release have called this film Deva Katta’s best work since her 2010 family drama Prasthanam. “Republic is @devakatta’s new Prasthanam. I’m just blown away by what I saw last night @IamSaiDharamTej, the best ever. The #Republic is beyond politics and a journey that everyone must experience. I’m hungover and waiting to hear from you all. @aishu_dil Woman bowing deeply @meramyakrishnan @IamJagguBhai (sic), ”musician Smita tweeted.

Republic is a high-tension political drama. Judging by the trailer, the film seems to revolve around the efforts of an honest IAS officer to defend the basic principles of the Indian pursuit. The trailer also shows the character of Tej standing up to corrupt politicians, who want to organize a riot for their personal agenda. Besides Tej, Republic also stars Aishwarya Rajesh, Jagapathi Babu, among others.

The film will be released on schedule, although Tej is still recovering from the injuries he sustained in a traffic accident earlier this month. At the film’s pre-release event, Tej Pawan Kalyan’s uncle in an emotional outburst revealed that Tej was still in a coma.
