Touted to be a sports drama, the film will be directed by debutant Dennis Jeevan Kanukolanu.

The first look poster of Sundeep Kishan’s upcoming film was released on the occasion of Dusshera. Titled A1 Express, the film is a sports drama. Incidentally, this is the star’s first sports drama. The poster shows Sundeep in a jersey with the letter A1 on it, wielding a hockey stick and facing the crowds in a stadium.

The film is directed by Dennis Jeevan Kanukolanu, who is making his debut. Bankrolling the film are TG Vishwa Prasad, Abhishek Agarwal, Sundeep Kishan and Daya Pannem under the banner People Media Factory, Abhishek Agarwal Arts and Venkatadri Talkies. Hip-hop Tamizha has been roped in to compose the tunes for this flick.

The groundwork for this project is on and the shooting is expected to commence during the first week of November. The filmmakers are in the process of finalising the heroine and the rest of the star cast and crew; an official announcement is expected soon. Besides this Telugu film, Sundeep Kishan has Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL, Naragasooran and Kasada Thapara in various stages of production.

Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL is touted to be a comedy entertainer helmed by G Nageshwara Rao. The film is about a newbie lawyer looking for clients and how he manages to take up cases. Hansika Motwani plays the female lead in this flick with Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar also roped in for an important role.

Kasada Thapara is directed by Chimbu Devan and bankrolled by Venkat Prabhu’s Black Ticket Company banner and Ravindran’s Trident Arts.

The film has Arvind Swami playing a pivotal role with Shriya Saran and Indrajith Sukumaran also included in the star cast.
