Looks like Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan is the most wanted actor in the Telugu film industry after his role as Gemini Ganesan in Mahanati fetched him rave reviews. The star is apparently in talks with a director to play one of the lead roles in a film that will also have Tollywood star Venkatesh in the lead. And now the buzz is that director Ajai Bhupathi is planning to rope in Dulquer Salmaan for a movie with Ram Pothineni in the lead.
Sources in the know say that Ram is impressed with the script that the director had narrated and had decided to take up the role offered to him. On the other hand, Ajai Bhupathi is yet to narrate the script to Dulquer Salmaan and will be doing so later this month.
If he gets the go ahead signal from the hero, Ajai Bhupathi should be starting the shooting next month, reports sources. On the film, we hear that it could be a gangster film set in Vizag with completely performance-oriented roles for the lead stars. More details will be out only after Dulquer’s decision.
Ajai Bhupathi’s last film release was RX 100 which starred Kartikeya Gummakonda, Payal Rajput, Rao Ramesh and Ramki in the lead roles. The film hit the marquee in July this year and opened to good reviews. Bankrolled by Ashok Reddy Gummakonda on a budget of Rs 1.5 crores, the film went on to collect close to Rs 31 crores at the box office on its release.
Reports are that Ajai Bhupathi’s new film will be completely different from RX 100 and it is something to look out for. With the director planning a multi starrer, fans hope that he comes up with an interesting fare this time as well.
