A few days ago, reports surfaced that director Shekar Kammula and Naga Chaitanya will be joining hands for a new film. And now it is official that the film will start rolling from September onwards. Sai Pallavi will be playing the female lead in it.
It may be noted that Shekar Kammula had introduced Sai Pallavi to the Telugu audiences with the smash hit Fidaa and has once again decided to have her on board his film. Sources in the know say that Shekar Kammula is planning to release the film later this year.
Meanwhile, Naga Chaitanya will be wrapping up Venky Mama in which he shares the screen space with Venkatesh. The film is bankrolled by D Suresh under his banner Suresh Productions on a very big budget with Bobby aka KS Ravindra wielding the megaphone. The female leads in Venky Mama are Raashi Khanna and Payal Rajput. S. Thaman is composing the tunes for this flick with Prasad Murella cranking the camera and Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao editing it. The shooting of this film began in February and it will hit the marquee later this year. Naga Chaitanya's recent release Majili has turned out to be a blockbuster hit. Besides Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Akkineni, the film has Divyansha Kaushik in the lead role.
On the other hand, Sai Pallavi has Virata Parvam in her kitty. According to reports, it will be a romance film, but will also have a lot of action and politics included to make the narration interesting. The film has Rana Daggubati playing a cop while Sai Pallavi will be seen as a Naxalite in love with the cop. The film is directed by Venu Udugula of Naadi Needi Oke Kadha fame. Tabu, Priyamani, Eswari Rao and Zareena Wahab have been roped in to play the supporting roles in it.
