Basking in glory over the massive success of his latest film release Nenu Raju Nene Mantri Rana Daggubati and director Teja will be working again together.
Rana and Teja are likely to team up for a movie which is to be in the backdrop of 1971 Indo-Pak war in which the actor is rumored to play a pilot of Indian Air Force in this movie.
Rana is currently shooting for a periodic movie titled 1945 and has a couple of other projects which include Haathi Mere Saathi and Hirankyakasipa. The film will go on roll once the actor wraps up the shoot of his Tamil film Madai Thiranthu and Haathi Mere Saathi (a bilingual) and will join Teja’s film post-summer.
Recently, Teja who was roped in to direct the biopic of NTR walked out of the project due to creative differences with Balakrishna, who is playing NTR in the movie. Later it was told he will revive his project with Venkatesh which was put on hold.
Touted to be a commercial entertainer with a story about revenge, the film was tentatively titled Aata Nade Veta Nade. The groundwork to get this project on to the floors begun and the photo shoot with the lead star took place recently.
However, the actor had a difference of opinion and wanted to be seen in a bearded look so that audience would relate to the character. Amidst such reports, now it seems the project has been shelved. The director has clearly announced that he has completely dropped Venkatesh’s movie. Also, he has added that he has no plans to revive it.
Director Teja made his directorial debut with Chitram in the year 2000 and has directed films such as Nuvvu Nenu, Yeh Dil, Jayam, Lakshmi Kalyanam and Nene Raju Nene Mantri.
