Kankatala, at the threshold of turning 75 years, celebrates through a royal campaign inspired by the Queens of Andhra. Through this campaign, we present a narrative of valour and beauty by reinventing portraits of the queens.
These portraits are an artistic interpretation which depict their iconic presence during their stage of stature. Their historic life events, social and cultural evidence aided the visualisation process for each queen.
The queens are a personage of great reputation in the land of Telugu people and have been a source of inspiration for generations.
