After the success of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, director Surendar Reddy is yet to sign his next film. From the last few days, it is being heard that he is planning to work with Akhil Akkineni. Another popular director Krish came forward to bankroll this film. He wanted to produce the film with Rajeev Reddy under the banner First Frame Entertainment. But we now hear that Surender Reddy quoted a whopping amount of Rs. 45 crores as the budget of this movie.
Apparently, the producers were quite startled with the budget quoted by Surender Reddy. They are now reconsidering their decision to bankrolling the movie. Thus, Surender Reddy is hunting for a new producer. If he gets one, he will start the project soon. On the other side, Surender Reddy is trying to narrate another story to producer Ram Talluri. The latter is currently planning to bankroll a film with Pawan Kalyan. He is searching for the right director to helm this film. Surender Reddy is trying his luck for the same. If he gets a chance of directing Pawan, Surender Reddy will put Akhil's film on hold.
Currently, Akhil is working for the film Most Eligible Bachelor. Directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar, this movie features Pooja Hegde as the female lead. Allu Aravind is presenting this movie. The makers are planning to release the film during Sankranthi festive season next year.
