The Telugu period drama co-produced by Nithya Menen traces the ramifications of the space station’s disintegration on the lives of the protagonists
The name Skylab harks back to the 1979 incident of the disintegration of the space station of the same name. But the first look poster of the Telugu film featuring Satya Dev, Nithya Menen and Rahul Ramakrishna points to an entertainer. The three are shown seated on Skylab, with currency notes raining behind them. Produced by Byte Features and Nithya Menen Company and directed by Vishvak Khanderao, the film is a period drama entertainer.
A statement from the film’s team reads: Skylab, the first space station of NASA, was feared to have disintegrated. It was warned that its debris would fall at random on Earth, endangering lives.
