Actor Ravi Teja’s last film Kick 2 didn’t work on the box office but that hasn’t stopped director Venu Sriram from wanting to cast Ravi in his next yet untitled Telugu film. Sriram is reportedly in talks with Ravi Teja. The film is expected to go on floors sometime next year.
“Venu is currently busy giving final touches to the script. Ravi gave his consent after listening to a few lines of the story. If all goes as planned, the project may happen next year,” said a source from the film’s unit.
Nani is one notable Telugu actor who continues to work with promising young directors and sometimes flop directors too, even after scoring successive hits in the recent times.
As per latest reports, the ‘Majnu’ actor has agreed to act in a new film to be directed by Venu Sriram. This name sounds familiar, right? He is that Dil Raju prodigy who made his directorial debut with Raju’s production venture ‘Oh My Friend’. After the failure of that project, he has been waiting with bated breath for another chance.
A few months ago, he was supposed to take his new film starring Ravi Teja on to sets. But, the ‘Kick’ actor pulled out of the project at the last minute as he was allegedly not impressed with the final script. Now, it is heard that Venu Sriram has impressed Nani with a subject and got his green signal. It is not yet clear if it was a new subject or the same one that was rejected by Ravi Teja. But, Nani’s project with Venu Sriram is definitely in offing. Dil Raju is on board to produce this film starring Nani and to be directed by Venu Sriram.
Nani is currently acting in Dil Raju’s another production venture ‘Nenu Local’, which will hit screens for Christmas this year.
