‘Gangs of Godavari’, which is produced by Naga Vamsi, releases in theatres on May 31, and collected good numbers on Friday. As per Sacnilk.com, the film minted Rs 4.5 crore nett in India on the day of its release. In fact, it had a total of 38.12 percent Telugu occupancy on Friday. Starring Vishwak Sen, Neha Sshetty, and Anjali in the lead roles, the film revolves around the power dynamics of Godavari. 

Vishwak, who usually plays urban roles, can be seen in a rustic role in the film. Going by the teaser, his character makes enemies out of many people. He plays the role of Lankala Rathna, a tribal community member, who becomes a powerful gangster and politician after starting out as a thief.

Speaking about his character, Vishwak had recently told The Times of India, “I play Lankala Rathna, a member of the tribal community who transforms from a petty thief to a powerful gangster and politician. This is the best role I've played in my career. I like to push the envelope and experiment with my characters.” He revealed how he gave up his trademark Telangana accent for a West Godavari one.
