Mahesh Babu’s nephew Galla Ashok is all set to make his acting debut in the Telugu film industry.
The latest is that Ace producer Dil Raj is bankrolling the debut film of Ashok which will be helmed by Krishna Reddy G, a former associate of Baahubali filmmaker SS Rajamouli.
According to sources, Dil Raju has bought the remake rights of Turkish film Love Likes Coincidences starring Mehmet Günsür and Belçim Bilgin Erdoğan, directed by Ömer Faruk Sorak and produced by Oğuz Peri. But the story will be aligned suiting to Telugu audiences.
With the pre-production work underway currently, the movie is slated to go on the floors very soon.
Ashok has been undergoing rigorous training in acting, dance, and stunts at Mumbai and New York film institutes for the past one year or so and is now ready for his debut. Son of Mahesh Babu’s elder sister Padmavati and ace politician Galla Jayadev (Telugu Desam Party MP), and grandson of veteran actor Krishna, Galla Ashok has been keen on starring in films for a long time now, say sources.
Jayadev, the brother-in-law of Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu, has been trying to bring his son even when he was a kid. In fact, Ashok’s entry into films was talked about way back in 2009, when he was just 16-years-old. Now, he is 23 and is learned to have taken acting lessons.
It may be mentioned here that Dil Raju will be bankrolling Mahesh Babu’s landmark 25th film under his banner and this project will be directed by Vamsi Paidapally. The actor is currently busy with his 24th film, Bharat Ane Nenu, which is being helmed by Koratala Siva.
With Galla Ashok from the Krishna family making his debut, it is the third generation from the star’s family making it to the film industry.
