Tollywood actor Rana Daggubati who shot to national fame with Bahubali has now become co-owner of the ISL debutants Hyderabad FC franchise. While Varun Tipuraneni and Vijay Madduri were the other co-owners.
Rana hails from the most illustrious family of the country. His grandfather Daggubati Ramanaidu is known as Movie Moughal, while his father is also one of the big producers in T town and his uncle Venkatesh is yesteryear, top league hero.
