Tipped to be an action-thriller, the film will see Ravi Teja play a cop. Recently, reports emerged that the film is a remake of Tamil film Theri, which featured Vijay as a cop. However, director Malineni clarified via a tweet that the film is not a remake.

Meanwhile, Ravi Teja currently awaits the release of his next film Disco Raja, which has been directed by Vi. Anand and is slated to release on December 20. The film also stars Paayal Rajput, Priya Jawalkar and Nabha Natesh.

According to reports, Disco Raja is a science fiction, a genre that’s rarely explored in Telugu cinema. The film has been made on a budget of Rs 40 crore. After a string of flops, Ravi has pinned high hopes on Disco Raja and Krack. Both these projects are riding on high expectations and he hopes to bounce back strongly with a hit.
