PP is a socio-political thriller and is a woman-centric subject, says Priyanka Upendra, speaking to CE ahead of the film’s launch today said that she has been experimenting with genres, and this is an interesting plot and a gradual essential to explore another kind of a role.

“It is about an individual, an educated woman who decides to come to India and takes a challenge to bring a change in the society and among people. It is a powerful role. Though it is not based on anyone, however, the concept is similar to Upendra’s party, Prajakeeya,” says Priyanka.

The actor talked about her inclination toward politics, and she had a candid reply. “I have been part of Upendra’s Prajakeeya since its inception, and we are always bouncing ideas to each other. For the longest time, when I first met him, he had expressed his desire to serve people, and not meant to entertain them. He always wants to work towards bringing a change in society. I have always had a voice when it came to women’s issues, and education, which is mostly done through the foundation. That’s how this subject caught my interest, she says.

Apart from Priyanka, the cast also consists of Ravi Shankar Girija Lokesh, Yash Shetty, and Cheluvaraju in prominent roles, and will also feature artistes from a theatre background.
