From the last few days, it is being reported that King Nagarjuna is going to team up with director Praveen Sattaru. The latest buzz reveals that this film is going to be a remake of the Hindi movie Raid. We also hear that Ileana D'Cruz will be playing the female lead in this project.
Raid was an action crime drama which got directed by Raj Kumar Gupta. Ajay Devgn and Ileana played the leads in it. Now, it looks like Ileana is all set to reprise her role in the remake as well. Nagarjuna will play the role of an Income Tax Officer in this movie. The story of the film revolves around an infamous investigation happening on a politician's assets. The movie was heavily inspired by the real incidents that happened in the 1990s. Raid was a super hit in Hindi. The Telugu makers are planning to achieve the same feat. Apparently, Praveen Sattaru is making necessary changes in the film's story to suit the nativity of the Telugu audiences. Mostly, the film will go on the floors during the last quarter of this year.
Ileana's last Telugu film was the 2018 release Amar Akbar Anthony. Meanwhile, Nagarjuna is currently busy with the works of his next film Wild Dog. It is being directed by debutant Ahishir Solomon. Nag is playing the role of an encounter specialist in this film. Wild Dog is being produced by Anvesh Reddy and Niranjan Reddy under the banner Matinee Productions.
