Megastar Chiranjeevi has recently announced that he is in plans of making a film with director Meher Ramesh. We now hear that it is going to be a remake of the 2015 Tamil film Vedhalam. Directed by Siva, this movie featured Ajith and Shruti Haasan in the lead roles. If the latest grapevine is anything to go by, Sarileru Neekevvaru producer Anil Sunkara is going to bankroll this project.
Earlier, it was widely reported that Chiru will work on the remake of the Malayalam film Lucifer. Even Chiru told the same in a television interview. He also stated that Saaho director Sujeeth will direct this project. However, it seems that the Annayya actor was unhappy with the narration of Sujeeth. Thus, the project got shelved. Now, the actor is keen on remaking Vedhalam in Telugu. We hear that even Meher Ramesh has completed the script works of it and Chiru was also satisfied by it. If everything goes as planned, this project will go on the floors next year. Anil Sunkara scored a massive success with Sarileru Neekevvaru. He is hoping to repeat the success with this movie as well.
Currently, Chiranjeevi is working on the film Acharya. Directed by Koratala Siva, this movie features Kajal Aggarwal as the female lead. Ram Charan is essaying the other key role in it. Charan is also producing the film along with Niranjan Reddy. Acharya will hit the screens in 2021.
