Rana Daggubati spoke about working with his uncle and Netflix for the first time and said, “This project has been a long-time coming and it’s special for so many reasons. It’s not only my first collaboration with Netflix but also with my uncle, Venky. It has been an enriching experience working with Sunder (Aaron,) Karan (Anshuman) and Suparn (Varma) on this project and I am glad Rana Naidu turned out the way it has. The entire cast and crew have put in a lot of hard work into the series and I am confident that the audiences will love it!” He further added, “Playing the role of Rana Naidu was exceptionally challenging. He's a complex character with a deep emotional connection to his family, but also struggles with his relationship with his father. And, amidst all this drama is Rana’s professional journey and what it requires of him. I can't wait for everyone to experience the world of Rana, Naga and everything in between!”


Venkatesh Daggubati added, "I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with my dear nephew for the first time for a show as exciting as Rana Naidu. Portraying the character of Naga is an entirely new experience for me, as I have never come across a character like this before. Naga is a refreshing change, with his playful demeanor that stands in stark contrast to Rana's more intense personality. This character is witty, charismatic and layered. I’m excited for my fans to tell me what they think as this is a first for me in many ways.. And, working with this team of talented directors and producers on the series has been a truly wonderful experience.”

The series delves into the themes of family, power, morality, and at the heart of it - a rather unique father-son relationship. But make no mistake, it's also high-stakes action, edge of the seat drama, with some sharp writing and outstanding performances that continually push the boundaries. Be prepared for some big surprises!”
