Rayudu is the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh who arranges his daughter's marriage with Chinnappa. During the marriage, the son of Chief Minister of Telangana Ranjith Reddy arrives at the marriage venue as a guest and elopes with Rayudu's daughter. This enrages Ranjith Reddy and Rayudu, where they turn into enemies.

Meanwhile, Bhaskar Raju is a college student who kidnaps Rayudu's daughter and Ranjith Reddy's daughter Sreeleela Reddy (who also happens to be Bhaskar's classmate) and takes them to his hometown in Rudrarajupuram. It is revealed that the kidnappings are connected to the CEO of the Crown Group company Rudrakanti Ramakrishna Raju, who is awaiting his death penalty and was imprisoned falsely by Ranjith Reddy and Rayudu for refusing to legitimize their illegal money. It is also revealed that Ramakrishna Raju is the best friend of Bhaskar's father Manikanta Raju. Bhaskar wants to prove Ramakrishna Raju's innocence as he was forced to take the blame to protect his daughter Rudraganti Parineeta as she was held captive by Ranjith and Rayudu's men.

Without no choice, Ranjith and Rayudu bails out Ramakrishna Raju from prison. Following this, the duo attacks Bhaskar and his family at a temple festival, but they are saved by Bhaskar's doppelgänger Skanda. Eventually, Ranjith and Rayudu confess their crimes to the media. When Ramakrishna Raju inquires about Skanda, it is revealed that Skanda is a notorious assassin from Morocco who is responsible for the death of Morocco-based powerful crime boss called Daniel. After learning about his history, Rayudu and Ranjith Reddy become frightened of him as Skanda walks away, indicating that his past will unfold in the sequel titled Skanda 2.
