Chennai: Kodi Ramakrishna says 'Avataram' is loosely based on a real incident in Kerala. He says it's about a woman's fight against a devil and the graphics used will the film's high points.

"The story is loosely based on an incident in Kerala that I came across recently. It's about a woman who takes the devil head-on with her ability to do something extraordinary. I made some changes to the original story and adapted it to the screen," Ramakrishna told us.

"Like my previous films such as 'Ammoru' and 'Arundhati', this film too shall be high on graphics. This time we have upped the ante and roped in foreign technicians to work on the visual effects, which is sure to catch the attention of the film-goers," he added.

Radhika will play the lead in the film, which will also feature senior actress Bhanupriya in an important role.

"I feel Radhika is an exceptionally good actress. The audience will feel the same after they watch her on screen. This is a very dear project as I spent more than two years on it," said Ramakrishna.

Also starring Rishi, Annapoorna and Sathya Prakash in important roles, 'Avataram' is slated to release on February 27.
