After playing an ardent devotee of Lord Balaji in his Telugu release Om Namo Venkatesaya, actor Akkineni Nagarjuna will be playing a mentalist in horror-thriller Raju Gari Gadhi 2.

“His character has been designed in such a way that it will be a treat for his fans. He plays a mentalist. He will be seen riding a fancy bike in the film. He will be in a very different avatar and, contrary to rumours, he is not playing an extended cameo,” said a film unit source.

Being directed by Ohmkar, the film is a sequel to his own 2015 sleeper hit Raju Gari Gadhi.

The sequel also stars Seerat Kapoor, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Shakalaka Shankar.

The source clarified that Samantha and Nagarjuna are not paired together.

“No, they’re not playing a couple. Also, Samantha is not playing the ghost... She will be seen in a very emotional role.”

Nagarjuna will commence shooting in March. The film is being produced by PVP Cinema and has music by SS Thaman.
