Director Teja is the one who gave breakthrough for actor Gopichand. Both of them worked together for the films Jayam and Nijam. In both the films, Gopichand acted as an antagonist. His performance in those movies is still considered as few of his best works. Now, after a long time, the duo is all set to team up once again. Gopichand will be playing the lead hero in Teja's upcoming film Alivelu Venkata Ramana. If the ongoing buzz is anything to go by, Anushka Shetty is being considered for the female lead role in this movie.
According to the sources, Teja initially wanted to rope in Kajal Aggarwal as the female lead. But already, he made his last two films Sita and Nene Raju Mantri, with Kajal. Thus, he is now planning to rope in another actress for this new film. We hear that Teja considers Anushka as the best option. Currently, the talks are going with her and an official announcement will get made once she signs the dotted lines.
The shoot of this film will go on floors soon. Currently, Gopichand is working for the film Seetimaarr. This sports drama is being directed by Sampath Nandi. Tamannaah is playing the female lead in it. Both Gopichand and Tamannaah are playing the roles of Kabaddi coaches in the movie. Seetimaarr got done with 40% of its shoot. The makers are planning to release the film towards the end of this year. Mani Sharma is composing the music for it.
