The RRR actor has already confirmed that his role of Siddha in ‘Acharya’ is a full-fledged character. On sharing the screen with his megastar dad, he said “It will be an absolute honour for me to be able to share the same frame as my father. Also, it is not a cameo but a full-fledged role for me. I want to thank director Koratala Siva for making my mother’s dream come true.”
Starring Kajal Aggarwal as the leading lady with Sonu Sood and Jisshu Sengupta in crucial roles, the film is set against the backdrop of Dharmasthali and it features Chiranjeevi as a Naxalite-turned-social reformer who launches a fight against the Endowments Department over misappropriation and embezzlement of temple funds and donations. The high-octane teaser showcased the senior hero in an action-packed avatar.
While Mani Sharma is composing the music for Acharya, Regina Cassandra has sizzled for a special number before the lockdown. Jointly bankrolled by Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainment, the film is slated for a worldwide release on May 13.
