Actor Chiranjeevi made a great comeback with his film, Khaidi No 150, doing good business at the box office. 

The 'Mega Star', who quit acting after his foray into politics nearly a decade ago, decided to don the greasepaint once again and chose Khaidi No 150 as his landmark 150th film. 

The film, directed by VV Vinayak, was the remake of the AR Murugadoss directorial Kaththi, that had Vijay in the lead.

Released for Sankranti earlier this year, the film turned out to be a fitting comeback venture for the actor. 

According to reports, Chiranjeevi’s next film is a biopic on freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. 

The film will be directed by Surendar Reddy and the groundwork for it is already on. Sources close to this biopic say that the filmmakers have landed on a book about the Indian freedom fighter in a British library, which had adequate details about Narasimha Reddy. 

Reddy had fought against the British even before the 1857 revolt, often considered the first uprising against the British empire, and was hanged to death a decade before the revolt.

Director Surendar Reddy is expected to go on to the floors with this project in August this year. While there are various speculations about who would be included in the cast, there are reports that Rana Daggubati may be roped in. 

It is well known that Rana and Chiranjeevi’s son, Ram Charan Teja, are good friends and this could bring the Baahubali actor onboard the film. 

However, there is no official word about Rana’s inclusion. The upcoming film is being produced by Ram Charan under his home banner Konidela Films.

Rana is currently busy with the Telugu film Nene Raju Nene Mantri and two Tamil movies Ennai Nokki Paayum Thotta and Madai Thiranthu.
