Here on Pitta Kathalu – that is Telugu for “short stories” – are the directors Tharun Bhascker (Pelli Choopulu) and Sankalp Reddy (Ghazi) as well as BV Nandini Reddy (Oh! Baby) and Nag Ashwin (Mahanati). You will present four recordings of extremely courageous women: “Ramula”, “Pinky”, “Meera” and “xLife”.
