For the sixth time in their careers - after films such as Super, Don and Ragada among others - actors Akkineni Nagarjuna and Anushka Shetty are said to team up in veteran filmmaker K. Raghavendra Rao's next yet-untitled film on Baba Hathi Ram, the seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu.
In this mythological film, Nagarjuna will be seen essaying the titular role of the godman.
Anushka, who is currently busy juggling between the sets of Singam 3 aka S3 and Baahubali 2, has been roped in for an important role. Although the makers wanted to approach a leading Bollywood star for the role, it was Rao who suggested that they approach the former Yoga expert-turned-actress from Bangalore.
The shooting of the film will start from July. Meanwhile, Nagarjuna will grow his beard for the role and also shed some weight.
