Rakta Charitra is RGV's next directorial venture and as per the director is his most violent film till date.
The story will be based around the conspiracy theories surrounding 2005 assassination of Paritala Ravindra. The Hindi and Telugu versions will be split in to 2 parts, since the duration of the entire movie exceeds 5 hours. The two parts will be released in a gap of three months. The director feels that the 2-part release would appeal to multiplex audiences. At the same time the Tamil version of the movie, Rattha Charitram, will be released as a single full-length movie after extensive editing.
