Naga Chaitanya and director Chandoo Mondeti first collaborated for the remake of the hit Malayalam film Premam a couple of years ago that went on to become a blockbuster hit. The original starred Sai Pallavi, Madonna Sebastian and Anupama Parameswaran as the female leads while in the Telugu version it was Shruti Haasan, Madonna Sebastian and Anupama Parameswaran sharing the screen space with Naga Chaitanya.
After the success of Premam, it was announced that Naga Chaitanya and Chandoo Mondeti would be teaming for Savyasachi which is currently on the floors.
According to the latest buzz, the theatrical right of Savyasachi has been sold out in the two Telugu states – Andhra and Telangana. The rights have been picked up for a whopping Rs 9.5 crore, say sources. The movie has fetched a good price in Karnataka as well, sources say.
Naga Chaitanya is paired opposite Nidhi Agarwal in this action packed entertainer. R Madhavan and Bhumika Chawla will be seen in important roles in this flick. Maddy, who was last seen in a cameo in Om Shanti, some years ago, will be seen in a major role in a Telugu film for the first time in his career.
The film is bankrolled by Mohan Cherukuri, Ravi Shankar Yalamanchili and Naveen Yerneni under the banner of Mythri Movie Makers and its technical crew includes MM Keeravani for music composition, J Yuvaraj for cinematography, Venkateswara Rao Kotagiri for editing, S Rama Krishna and Monika Niggotre for art direction, and Ram and Lakshmi Chella for stunt choreography.
This Naga Chaitanya starrer was initially planned for release in June but it was postponed after the filmmakers decided to re-shoot some sequences after not being satisfied over the way it was shot the first time.
Savyasachi is loaded with action scenes and many of it has been shot in the United States, where the team had camped for several days.
