The industry grapevine is that an official announcement regarding the project will be made later this year and the film will go on the floors next year. Kammula and Sai Pallavi are joining hands for the second time. The latter made her Telugu debut via Fidaa, which also starred Varun Tej and ended up as a blockbuster. Pallavi’s performance in the movie earned her praise from all quarters.

Apparently, Kammula is currently working on the final draft of the script. He’s already pitched the idea and is believed to have impressed both Chaitanya and Pallavi, who have given their nods.

Chaitanya is currently busy shooting for Telugu comedy Venky Mama, which also stars Venkatesh. This is the first time Chaitanya will be seen sharing screen space with his uncle.

Chaitanya was last seen in Majili, which also starred Samantha in a crucial role. In the film, he played a failed cricketer turned rowdy. It was his first release post marriage with wife Samantha.
