There have been various speculations about director Vikram Kumarâ€™s next film. Putting an end to it all, we hear that he will be helming a project that will have Nani in the lead. The formalities are being worked out and an official announcement about the film is expected to be made soon. Well-known production house Mythri Movie Makers will be producing this venture. It may be noted here that Nani and Vikram Kumar will be teaming up for the first time. We hear through sources that the film will go on to the floors in early 2019.
By then, Nani would have completed his current assignment on hands â€“ Jersey. Jersey is being bankrolled by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under the banner of Sithara Entertainments and is helmed by director Gowtam Tinnanuri. Naniâ€™s leading lady in Jersey will be Kashmira Pardeshi, who made her debut with the Telugu movie Narthanashala.
The first look poster of Jersey made it clear that it is a film about cricket. The jersey hanging in a cupboard along with the cricket gear around it did go viral among the netizens. In fact, Nani had expressed his desire to star in a sports-based film on the lines of the Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal and looks like his wish is coming true to Jersey.
Naniâ€™s last release was Devadas in which he got to share the screen space with the veteran hero Nagarjuna. The film, directed by Sriram Adittya, received lukewarm response at the box office despite having an ensemble of stars in the cast.
Following this, Nani is under compulsion to come up with a huge hit and is banking his hopes on Jersey followed by the Vikram Kumar directorial.
