The word faction and the name Rayalaseema has got a very dark historical significance with each other. There was a time when bloodshed was raging without any adherence to law or justice. It was the era when the name of one man was considered nothing short of a God by his people. He is Paritala Ravi.
The Anantapur district always had great respect for Paritala and now his vision is being materialized by his celluloid version. Well, he is none other than the Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi who essayed the role of Pratap Ravi in the film Rakta Charitra. The character was strongly based on Paritala Ravi. Recently, Vivek did something very noble. He adopted a village Muttiahkuntla in Anantapur district.
With this, he has joined the club of cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar who adopted a village in Nellore district and megastar Chiranjeevi who adopted a village near his hometown Mogalturu. Vivek reportedly stated he believes in making Paritala Ravi’s dream of seeing a very well developed Anantapuram district come true. Hats off Vivek!
