Rangasthalam is a Telugu period action drama film written and directed by Sukumar. Produced by Y. Naveen, Y. Ravi Shankar, and C. V. Mohan for the company Mythri Movie Makers, the film stars Ram Charan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu with Aadhi Pinisetty, Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj, Naresh, and Anasuya Bharadwaj in key supporting roles.

Sukumar started working on the film’s script after completing Nannaku Prematho (2016), and collaborated with R. Rathnavelu, who served as the director of photography. Devi Sri Prasad composed the film’s soundtrack and score; Naveen Nooli edited the film.

One of the first few Indian films to be entirely shot using Red Helium 8K cameras.

Rangasthalam’s principal photography began in April 2017 with the working title RC11 and lasted until March 2018. Majorly filmed in a village set worth ₹5 crore erected in Hyderabad, ten percent of the film’s footage was shot in and around Rajahmundry.
