Nikhil plays a journalist in the movie which is based on journalism backdrop and focuses more on the current issues and how media plays an important role in addressing them. Posters with a journalism theme to the film have been going viral on social media and Telugu audience in general have been very excited about this film.
Sam CS of Vikram Vedha fame is composing music while Suryaa is handling the cinematography. Kaviya Venugopal and Raju Kumar are jointly producing the movie under Auraa Cinemas PVT and Movie Dynamix LLP banners while B Madhu is presenting it. Lavanya Tripathi was last seen in Intelligent alongside Sai Dharam Tej which was directed by VV Vinayak which failed to impress audiences.
Nikhil has always tried to pick subjects which are not run-of-the-mill themes and have offbeat subjects and Mudra seems to be another attempt by the actor. The shooting of the film is currently under way in Hyderabad and will have Lavanya Tripathi playing the leading lady in it. This will be the first time that Nikhil will be playing a journo in his career.
