The shooting of Venky Mama was going on in Kashmir for nearly a month and has been currently wrapped up. Reports are that the team will be shooting in Visakhapatnam for the next few days. This will be an important schedule as some crucial scenes involving Venkatesh and Naga Chaitanya will be canned.
There are various predictions and theories regarding the film and one is that Venkatesh plays a villager while Naga Chaitanya is an army man who arrives into the village and makes tremendous social reforms. However, there is no clarity on this storyline yet.
The shooting of this film began late February and is progressing well. Venky Mama is bankrolled jointly by Suresh Productions and Blue Planet Entertainment on a very big budget with Bobby aka KS Ravindra wielding the megaphone. Anup Rubens has been roped in to compose tunes for Venky Mama and Prasad Murella will be cranking the camera. Raashi Khanna and Payal Rajput have been roped in to play the female leads in this flick and will be paired up with Naga Chaitanya and Venkatesh respectively.
The shooting of Venky Mama will go on for some more days after which the post production will begin. We hear that the film will be hitting the marquee later this year.
There are big expectations on this film as it will bring together the real life uncle Venkatesh and nephew Naga Chaitanya on the silver screens for the first time.
Meanwhile, Naga Chaitanya's next with director Sekhar Kammula, who has directed several hit movies in his career like Anand, Happy Days and Fidaa started rolling recently. Sai Pallavi will be playing the female lead in it.
On the other hand, Venkatesh's next would be Telugu remake of Ajay Devgn's hit Hindi movie De De Pyaar De. To be bankrolled by Suresh Babu under his banner Suresh Productions, the makers have approached Tabu to play Venkatesh's wife in the movie but there is no confirmation on it yet. Interestingly, she has done the role in the original as well.
