Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan made his Telugu debut with the 2018 film Mahanati. Dulquer played the role of Gemini Ganesan in this movie. Yesterday, he announced his second Telugu venture which is being directed by Hanu Raghavadpudi. If the ongoing buzz is anything to go by, Hanu first narrated this story to Nani. When the Ninnu Kori actor rejected it, he went to Dulquer Salmaan.
According to the sources, Dulquer was highly impressed by the story narrated by Hanu. Immediately, he gave his nod for the film. This untitled project is being produced by Priyanka Dutt under the banners Vyjayanti Movies and Swapna Cinema. This is a love story set in the backdrop of a war. The story takes place in the year of 1964. Dulquer is playing the role of Lieutenant Ram in this movie. The pre-look poster of this film got released the other day on the occasion of Dulquer's birthday. It got a wide positive reception from the audience.
It has been a while since Hanu scored a hit. His last two films Lie and Padi Padi Leche Manasu remained disasters at the box office. He is planning to strike back hard with this movie. The leading lady of this movie is yet to get finalized. Vishal Chandrashekhar is composing the music of it. This film will have a simultaneous release in Tamil and Malayalam as well. Stay tuned for more updates on it.
