The teaser opens with an event following his father's untimely death where Jagan assumes leadership of the party. From there, we catch a glimpse of his political rivals plotting to falsely accuse him of corruption. But nothing seems to put an end to his rebellion, and as we already know, the narrative will show how Jagan came to become Andhra Pradesh's chief minister.
