New Delhi: The August 25 premiere of Nene Naa, a mystery-crime movie featuring Regina Cassandra in a dual role, failed to attract audiences and was swiftly pulled from theatres. Within a twentieth day of its theatrical debut, it had made its way onto an OTT service.
The film, directed by Karthik Raju and based on the Gatha Janma vengeance drama premise, was a flop at the box office. The film’s popularity was limited despite the presence of such stars like Vennelakishor and Akshara Gowda.
Regina Cassandra, one of Telugu cinema’s most gifted and diverse actors, just had her film Nene Naa failed unexpectedly. After a disappointing theatrical release, this movie gained new life on OTT streaming sites. Unexpectedly, Nene Naa debuted on Aha OTT 20 days after its theatrical premiere.

Although it was not a commercial success in theatres, it has been revived on the internet, where audiences may once again enjoy Regina Cassandra’s compelling performance.
Storyline of the Film
In the film, Regina Cassandra plays two roles – Damayanti and Divya. The plot follows archaeologist Divya as she becomes embroiled in the murder investigation of a foreigner whose body was discovered in suspicious circumstances in the wilderness. As the police investigate more, a horrifying reality emerges. Damayanti, in her heavenly form, is responsible for the murder. This finding leads to some fascinating speculation regarding the past lives of both Divya the archaeologist and Damayanti the princess.
In the film, Vennela Kishore and Akshara Gowda further enhance the story. For mystery-filled fantasy drama fans, the film’s themes of reincarnation, divine justice, and previous incarnations are intriguing.
