Akkineni Naga Chaitanya scored a big success with his recent outing Love Story. He is now busy with the shoot of his upcoming films Thank You and Bangarraju. Chaitanya is also playing a pivotal role in Aamir Khan’s next, Laal Singh Chaddha. Meanwhile, it is now being heard that he has replaced Vijay Deverakonda in director Nandini Reddy’s upcoming project.
According to the sources, Nandini Reddy was supposed to do a film with Vijay a few years back, under the production of Vyjayanthi Movies. However, it didn’t take off due to some unknown reasons.
It is now being heard that she is planning to do the same script with Naga Chaitanya. Apparently, the discussions are going on and an official announcement may get announced soon.
Currently, Nandini is busy with the works of her next release ‘Anni Manchi Shakunamule’ starring Santosh Sobhan in the lead role.
On the flip side, it is also being heard that Chaitanya may sign another film with director Shiva Nirvana. It is heard that Shiva planned to do this film with Vijay earlier but has eventually decided to go with Chay. Vijay is currently working for the pan-India film Liger. He hasn’t signed any other project yet.
Maybe, he is planning to do only big-scale projects after Liger. That might be the reason for him to opt-out of Shiva Nirvana’s film, say the sources.
Whatever might be his reason, his exit is turning out to be advantageous for Chay, who has been very fast in signing films after the success of Love Story.
