The first poster of the movie is released on George's birthday on January 15. George was born on Jan 15, 1947. George was an Indian student activist as well as a research student in Physics studying at Osmania University, in Hyderabad. He was murdered on 14 April 1972 in a student hostel at the age of 25. His death resulted from an alleged attack by right-wing activists. The event led to the formation of the Progressive Democratic Students Union (PDSU), a student body on the campus of the university that took its name from the PDS imprint that Reddy had used when publishing pamphlets.
Reddy was a university gold medallist and a keen boxer, remembered now primarily for his promotion of Marxist ideas and his opposition of social discrimination and inequality. According to a student friend, he was inspired by the emerging Black Panthers movement in the US, the Vietnamese people's struggle against US imperialism and the peasant uprisings in Naxalbari and Srikakulam.
