Actor-turned-politician, Chiranjeevi's 150th movie is most likely to be directed by award-winning filmmaker, Puri Jagannadh.

Chiranjeevi has so far starred in 149 films in his career spanning two decades.

If industry sources are to be believed, Jagannadh may direct the much anticipated, yet-untitled Telugu film that will also mark the superstar's comeback.

"Puri is the top contender for this prestigious project. The story has already been penned by writer BVS Ravi. Chiranjeevi's son, Ram Charan, will produce the film under his home banner," a source told IANS.

On Saturday, actor Charmme Kaur spilled some beans regarding this project. "Huge confirmed good news for all Chiru fans coming out soon! I wish I cud leak it (sic)," Charmme posted on her Twitter page.

Carmme and Puri recently teamed up for Telugu film Jyothi Lakshmi, co-produced by the former.

"There is a possibility of Charmme being a part of the project. Official announcement regarding this collaboration is expected to happen soon," the source added.

Jagannadh's directorial Pokiri won him several awards and was screened at 7th IIFA Film Festival in Dubai. It has also been remade into several Indian languages.
