Uppena director Buchi Babu receives the nod from Jr NTR, but still in dilemma

As per latest reports, Buchi Babu has already started working on his upcoming project. He will be going on a long vacation to rejuvenate himself and then start penning the script for his next.

It is said that Buchi Babu narrated a sports drama subject to Jr. NTR and the latter is impressed with it. Tarak asked the former to develop the full script and assured that he would definitely green signal the project if he likes the final draft.
However, Tarak is already preoccupied with a couple of exciting projects in the pipeline. He will join hands with Trivikram after completing RRR and is also supposed to collaborate with KGF fame Prashanth Neel for an actio thriller next year. He will be unavailable at least till the end of 2022.
Directing a top star like Jr NTR for his second project would be like a dream come true for Buchi Babu but it comes at a price. He will have to wait for at least two years to collaborate with Tarak and that too only if he manages to impress the latter with his script.
With so many equations in mind, Buchi Babu is apparently in a dilemma whether to wait for Tarak to complete his current commitments or approach another star with a suitable script.
