Megastar Chiranjeevi is currently busy working on a prestigious film Bhola Shankar. The film is the official remake of Tamil super hit Vedhalam. Ajith played the film’s lead role and Siva is the film’s director. The upcoming Telugu film is directed by Meher Ramesh who is making a comeback to direction. Interestingly, the industry is buzzing with the news of Chiru passing a strict instruction to Meher Ramesh.
Meher Ramesh’s last films Kantri, Shakthi, and Shadow are cost failures. All the films failed to recover the minimal investments. Ramesh also shot the films in foreign locations and in costly sets. Right now, Ramesh will have to score a success to prove himself back in the game. Chiru who is a relative of Meher Ramesh seems to be giving the right advice to the talented filmmaker.
Chiranjeevi reportedly passed a strict instruction to Meher Ramesh that he should finish the film without exceeding the budget. The sources say that Ramesh was asked to complete the movie on a budget of 25 Crore rupees and it does not include the remunerations of the lead actors.
Anil Sunkara is the film’s producer and Mahathi Swara Sagar is the movie’s music composer. Keerthy Suresh is playing Chiranjeevi’s sister in the film. Tamannaah Bhatia is expected to be seen alongside Chiranjeevi in the film.
More details of the film will be out next month.
