It has been reported earlier that cinematographer Rishi Punjabi walked out of Ram Charan Teja starrer, directed by Boyapati Srinu, citing his prior commitments in Bollywood. However, the news has now emerged that the cinematographer, who had associated with Boyapati for a few films earlier, entered into a contract to work in the project till October but with the shooting schedules prolonged due to various reasons, he has been demanding extra payment. 

Considering the huge amount of budget on which this yet to be titled film is being made, the filmmakers felt that it would be right to let go of him and rope in a replacement. Following this, Arthur C Wilson has been brought on board and he will be cranking the camera for the rest of the film. Going by the reports doing rounds, we hear that 20 days of shooting is still pending.

The film, tentatively referred as RC 12, is being bankrolled by DVV Danayya under his banner DVV Entertainment. Bollywood star Vivek Oberoi will play the main antagonist while actor Prashanth will be seen as the brother of Ram Charan with Sneha appearing in a crucial role.

The movie has music composed by Devi Sri Prasad. Kiara Advani who was last seen in Mahesh Babu’s Bharat Ane Nenu will play opposite Ram Charan’s in the film.  Also, Baahubali actor Ramya Krishnan will be seen in an important role in the film.

Sources in the know say that the first look poster and title may be released for Diwali but this has not been confirmed yet. Also, we hear that the film may be titled Vinaya Vidheya Rama. There has been no official word on it yet.

With Ram Charan’s last release Rangasthalam being a huge hit, fans just can’t wait for this movie to be out!
