The shooting for Disco Raja, starring Ravi Teja as the hero, began with the official pooja recently on January 26 to coincide with Ravi Tejaâ€™s birthday. This project was planned to go on to the floors much earlier but was delayed due to certain reasons. Ram Talluri will be bankrolling Disco Raja under his banner.
Besides, Ravi Teja, the film will also feature Payal Rajput, Nabha Natesh, Vennela Kishore and Satya. Bobby Simha will be main antagonist in this flick. SS Thaman has been roped in to compose the tunes for Disco Raja with Sai Sriram cranking the camera and Navin Nooli editing it.
Tollywoodâ€™s Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja is desperately in need of a hit with his previous film bombing at the box office and he hopes that Disco Raja, which is a science-fiction entertainer, would give him the much needed break.
Director VI Anand made his directorial debut with Hrudayam Ekkada Unnadi and has directed Appuchi Gramam in Tamil, Tiger, Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada and Okka Kshanam.
Ravi Tejaâ€™s last film release was Amar Akbar Anthony, which made it to the silver screens on November 16 last year. Directed by Srinu Vaitla, Amar Akbar Anthony was bankrolled by Mythrie Movie Makers. Ileana D'Cruz and Ravi Teja play the lead pair. The filmâ€™s technical crew includes S Thaman for music, Venkat C Dileep for cinematography and MR Varma for editing. However, Amar Akbar Anthony seems to have broken this success streak.
Following this debacle, the production house had dropped plans to make another film with the hero. Talks were on with director Santosh Srinivas and Ravi Teja to remake the Tamil blockbuster Theri after the Power Star Pawan Kalyan decided to opt out of it. But with the production house opting out of it, the fate of the remake hangs in balance.
