 The one-minute long teaser focuses on the grandeur of actor Chiranjeevi's character. He plays a freedom fighter who played a vital role in India's first freedom struggle that took place in 1857. The teaser begins with showing glimpses of the control that the British possessed in India and the way Indians were treated under their rule. Enters Chiranjeevi who portrays the freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, from  Rayalaseema, a small region currently located in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
