~ Written and directed by Mallidi Vassishta, the fantasy-action film is all set to stream on ZEE5 Global in 5 languages ~

Global, 14th October 2022:  ZEE5 Global, the world’s largest streaming platform for South Asian content, announced the world digital premiere of ‘Bimbisara’. Produced by N.T.R Arts and written and directed by debutant Mallidi Vassishta, the critically acclaimed Telugu film stars Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, Catherine Tresa, Samyuktha Menon, Prakash Raj in pivotal roles and Warina Hussain, Vennela Kishore, Srinivas Reddy, Brahmaji, Sai Kiran, Ayyappa P. Sharma and others in secondary roles. The film will be available on ZEE5 Global from 21st October 2022 in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam & Hindi.

The film begins in the year 500 B.C when Bimbisara (Kalyan Ram) is the emperor of the Trigartala empire. A vile egomaniac, his violent antics have no limit. However, his ego trip ends when his banished twin brother Devadatta ambushes him and teleports him — through a magical mirror — to the present-day world. What happens when this authoritarian king is reincarnated as a suit wearing rich man in a modern-day world? 

Bimbisara’s arrival favours Subramanya Sastri (Vivan Bhatena) and godman Kethu (Ayyappa P Sharma), who have their eyes set on an Ayurveda book titled Dhanwanthari which is safely locked in Bimbisara’s treasure vault, which only he can open.

With opulence and ferocity in virtually every frame of the film, Bimbisara is enhanced by uncompromising action, its striking camera work, and impressive visual effects. The film is surely to impress the socio-fantasy lovers of cinema who like scale, historical characters and VFX.

Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global said, ”Telugu speaking audiences are a significant cohort within the South Asian diaspora globally and we have been consistently expanding our Telugu content library to bring them the latest blockbusters. We are happy to now premiere yet another box office hit, Bimbisara, on ZEE5 Global. A unique mix of action, fantasy and mythology, this film will surely delight our audiences with its stunning visuals this festive season.”

Nandamuri Kalyan Ram said,“I am super thrilled with the response we have received from the audience for Bimbisara so far, and I am looking forward to its World Digital Premiere on ZEE5 Global. For people who haven’t watched it yet, this is your opportunity to be a part of a fascinating and visually stunning world of Bimbisara”.

Director, Mallidi Vasishta said,“The film has received a positive response from the cinema lovers, critics and fans of Kalyan Ram and as a debutant director, what more could I ask for? Bimbisara is a product of my love for fantasies and my fascination for historical characters and stories and I am glad that this unique plot enticed and entertained so many across the country. And now with its World Digital Premiere on ZEE5 Global, I am sure that it will reach out to more people across the world and help us increase the fanbase of this wonder”.
