Chennai, Jan 1 (IANS) The Delhi gang-rape has inspired Telugu director Ramana Gaddam to recreate the horrific story in his forthcoming Telugu drama "Nisha". The idea, he says, is to send out a strong message to the government and public.

"I'm not trying to cash in on the sensitivity of this issue but bring to light a barbaric act that shook our nation. I want to send a strong message through my film that such acts can't be taken lightly and the perpetrators should be punished severely," Gaddam told IANS.

The film, though not based solely on the Delhi incident in which a 23-year-old was brutally gang-raped and who died, has other commercial elements to make it an interesting watch.

"Even though a small portion of the film will revolve around the incident, it is not entirely about it. We have added all elements to make it a typical commercial entertainer," Gaddam said.

"Nisha" is produced by J. Dhanraj. Goldee, Sunny and Pranay Kumar have composed music.

The film, currently in post-production phase, stars Kiran Kumar, Ananya, Kalyan and Narsing in lead roles.

    I am neither Indian nor live anywhere near India. I always wished to visit India one day but with this news, all I have is anger towards whoever that allowed such a terrible thing happen to that couple!!!! Clearly Indians need to wake up and respect women! This is crazy and shameful!!! Even animals have more sense of understanding than this bas***ds! The only way I can forgive India for allowing this stupid horrible event taking place is to punish the criminals the way no live man would ever think of repeating rape crime!!!! I have already started disliking india for such a terrible incident and many many more that happens every 22 minutes; beside all the disrespect they have for their female heir and women!!!!! Shame SHAME shame!!!
