Maverick director Ram Gopal Varma is renowned to announce projects at break neck pace. It is another matter that how many will see the arc lights in future. RGV sometime back created controversy by announcing Lakshmi's NTR and later sprang a surprise after teaming with King Nagarjuna. 

While teaming with King Nagarjuna in his pursuit to recreate the magic of their trendsetting Shiva on silver screen, RGV claimed that he decided to set aside other commitments for the timebeing to concentrate on the latest project,a pre condition set by Nagarjuna. 

RGV remained shocking silence over the last few weeks but it seems now he broke his promise by announcing a new project. Announcing his second web series project after his Hindi Web series on the Mumbai underworld called "Guns and Thighs",he said he is coming with a controversial topic on Kadapa Reddys. 

Revealing the title as 'KADAPA' he shared the reason behind the controversial project with the following post on Facebook.

Why the web series KADAPA?
My only objective of entering into the digital world is to be able to tell a story which I otherwise would have never been allowed to tell on a film screen. My second product on this platform after my Hindi Web series on the Mumbai Mafia called “Guns and Thighs”  will be the first ever original Telugu web Series made for an international audience titled KADAPA.
The title is derived as a summation of what a region stands for in its blood thirstiness a synonym of how violent Power affects the internal politics of ambition,ego,greed and one upmanship. The story of the entire series of KADAPA  is something I have gathered over many years ever since I first researched Raktacharitra with my extensive interactions with ex factionists to their victims's,their relatives and so on. 
Some might feel that I have dealt with this subject matter in my earlier film RaktaCharitra but nothing could be further from the truth. That's because in that film, I barely scratched the surface of the truth of the Rayala Seema’s hardcoreness due to my inconclusive knowledge at that time and also due to various restrictions and threats , but here in this web series I decided to tell it the way it is without any fear and complete honesty

This Series is as much intended for the international audience in terms of wherever violent power has been used to suppress any form of rebelliousness. Everybody needs to know the history of an interesting and overbearing region and I strongly believe this Series will document those very important times in the most naked way possible for those who did not witness it first hand.
Trailer of this series of Season 1 called KADAPA is releasing tomorrow that is December 15th at 10 Am
