While there is only one Tamil version, RGV plans to release two Hindi versions. He first version is about Ravi's rise in Andhra politics, so naturally it will be dominated by Vivek Oberoi. Suriya appears only in the last part of the first version.

The second part is about the rivalry between Suri and Ravi and the eventual killing of Ravi by Suri.

While the first Hindi version will release on October 22, the Tamil version Rakta Charitram will release during Diwali.

RGV who has sung the theme song in the film said he sang it "not to showcase my singing talent. The music directors forced me to sing tired of my interference!"

Suriya got emotional talking about his journey from an unknown Saravanan working in a garment factory to Suriya, the super star.

"If not for Mani Ratnam, I would have remained Saravanan in a garment factory. Today is an unforgettable day in my life as Mani Ratnam with whom I started my career and Ram Gopal Varma who directed my last film are here on the dais with me."
