After G.O.D, ZEE5 Brings Chadarangam, A Political Drama Inspired By Real-Life Events

The upcoming ZEE5 Original, Chadarangam, which marks the digital debut of Meka Srikanth, is loosely based on events that took place in the early '80s


The success of ZEE5 original, Gods of Dharmapuri, has turned the tables around. Now, we know the potential and the talent that the regional markets are houses to. The Satyadev Kancharana-starrer had us all hooked to the screen, as we passed through two generations of gangster drama and politics. If that’s what you enjoy, in general, our news will make your day better. Soon, we will have yet another political drama starring the yesteryear star Meka Srikantha. The show is titled Chadarangam and is based on true events, which unfolded in 1980-1984 in the then Andhra Pradesh.

In the meantime, check out the trailer for G.O.D here:

The show draws inspiration from the events that unfolded during legendary actor NT Rama Rao’s regiment as the Chief Minister of the state. Chadarangam is a fictionalised take on the events that unfolded inside the offices, and the drama revolving around them. Recently, the first poster of the show was released on Instagram, and it gives us hope that we’re in for many grey shades and tales that blur the boundaries of morality. Check out the poster here.
