Rudrama Devi Breaking the Male bastion

Rudrama Devi ranks herself among few female rulers in Indian history.  This ruler belonging to the Kakatiya dynasty of South India gave good account of herself as a wise ruler and even gave her male counterparts a run for their money. 

known for her benevolence, Rudrama took the male name of Rudradevamaharaja. She ruled the Kakatiya kingdom for nearly 30 years from c. 1259 to 1288, and has been praised in glowing terms by the contemporary Venetian traveller Marco Polo.

A film based on her life is being made by renowned director Gunasekhar. Top south Indian actress Anushka will star as Rudrama Devi in the film. This much awaited film will go on floors in February 2013. Ilayaraaja is composing the music for the film.
