Following the mega success of PSV Garuda Vega, its lead star Rajasekar is now all set to move over to his next project. To be directed by Prashanth Varma of Awe fame, the film is touted to be a crime thriller set in the 1980s. The star will be seen playing a police officer in this flick that has the Telangana region as its backdrop. Titled as Kalki, the shooting of the film will begin on September 19, report sources. Sets for the movie have been erected at the Patancheru area in Hyderabad, where the first schedule will commence. The cost of this set alone is estimated to be around Rs 2 crore. Sources in the film circles say that Kalki will be the costliest film ever for Rajasekar till date.
The star, in fact, was not in a hurry to sign up a new project after the success of PVS Garuda Vega as he wanted to retain the success spree. PSV Garuda Vega collected Rs 22 cr+ worldwide in 10 days. This is certainly very huge for Rajasekhar. The film is the costliest project in the career of Rajasekhar and it is turning out to be the biggest hit in his career too. With Kalki, he seems to have made the right choice.
The pre-look poster of Kalki was released on Bakrid eve and it was designed like an old paper clipping. It also came with an intriguing caption: â€˜Who is the murderer?â€™ It managed to garner the attention of the film buffs massively.
Director Prashanth Varma is also basking in glory over his last release Awe turning out to be a hit. With success under their belt, the duo are teaming up for a film together.
