Choreographer turned director Ashok after a long hibernation post his success with Bhaagaamathie starring Anushka Shetty, has now signed on another film. Though Bhaagaamathie was the first hit of the Telugu box office in 2018, the director was struggling to sign on his next film. He has finally bagged a new film for which he had narrated the story to mega nephew, Sai Dharam Tej, who has accepted the role.
The film is said to be a fantasy drama, similar to the Bhaagaamathie genre. Though Ashok has done a comedy with Nani in Pilla Zamindar, he is sticking to the fantasy genre now. Sai Dharam Tej is currently working on Chitralahari with director Kishore Tirumala starring Nivetha Thomas and Kalyani Priyadarshan in the leads.
