Actor-producer Ram Charan’s home production Konidela Production Company, along with Matinee Entertainments, on Monday confirmed that they will bankroll megastar Chiranjeevi’s next film, helmed by Koratala Siva.
In a statement the makers said that the pre-production work is going on in full swing and the final draft of the script is also complete. “Chiranjeevi is presently busy with his film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, which is directed by Surender Reddy. He will commence work on the new project soon after he is done with the work,” said the statement.
This announcement from the makers gives us clarity and has put down speculations that the project has been dropped.
While Chiru is ready to begin his new project this summer, Koratala Siva has just a few months left over to complete another script. It may be noted here that the director’s last release Bharat Ane Nenu, starring Mahesh Babu was a massive success, following which expectations are high on his next.
In the meantime, Chiranjeevi’s upcoming biopic, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is in its post-production mode. Sye Raa is also being bankrolled by Ram Charan Teja under his home banner Konidela Production Company on a budget of Rs 200 crore. It has a bevy of stars from different film industries including Amitabh Bachchan who will be seen making a guest appearance as Gosayi Venkanna.
The others in the star cast are Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara, Tamannaah, Jagapathi Babu, Kiccha Sudeep, Pragya Jaiswal and Brahmaji. R. Rathnavelu is the cameraman for this film, with A Sreekar Prasad editing it and Amit Trivedi wielding the music baton. It is a trilingual that will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. This film is likely to hit the marquee for Dusshera this year.
