The Ravi Teja-starrer will see Bobby Simha portraying the antagonist.

On the occasion of Bobby Simha’s birthday, the makers of the upcoming Ravi Teja starrer Disco Raja revealed the actor’s role in the movie.

“Here's wishing @actorsimha a Very Happy Birthday. #BobbySimha will be seen playing #BurmaSethu in #DiscoRaja, a menacing antagonist,” reads the tweet from the official Twitter handle of the film’s production house, SRT Entertainments.

The award-winning actor will be playing the film’s main villain, Burma Sethu. Produced by Ram Talluri, the film is directed by Vi Anand of Oka Kshanam and Ekadiki Pothavu Chinnavada fame. According to reports, Disco Raja is a science fiction film, a genre that is sure to bring in the audiences to the theatres. Regarding the film, the producer had said much earlier to Cinema Express, “The film is replete with special effects and director Vi Anand, and his team are investing a lot of efforts to make it a visual extravaganza.”

Three leading ladies Nabha Natesh, Payal Rajput and Priyanka Jawalkar have been roped in to share the screen space opposite Ravi Teja. Allari Naresh too has been brought on board to play an important role in the film. Impressed over the way his character has been shaped up, Allari Naresh agreed to join the star cast, confirm sources.

A few months ago, reports surfaced that Ravi Teja’s Disco Raja is in trouble and had been put in the cold storage. This news was certainly a big disappointment for all Ravi Teja fans as the star is desperately in need of a smash hit and there were a lot of hopes pinned on Disco Raja to be the breakthrough film. With the rumors spreading that Disco Raja was shelved, its producer Ram Talluri had to confirm that the project was on the right track and the shooting in progress.
