One of the most highly-anticipated sequels in Tollywood, Akkineni Nagarjuna
is slated to go on floors this July. The film, which is a sequel to the actor’s hit film Soggade Chinni Nayana, has been in the pipeline for quite some time now and sources reveal that the film will go on floors as soon as the COVID
situation gets better. “This is a project that is very close to Nag
sir’s heart and it’s been in the pipeline for a long time. Due to various issues with the scripting followed by the pandemic, the project has been getting delayed. However, the scripting is now in the final stages and Nag sir has given the nod to it as well. As soon as the lockdown is lifted and film shoots resume, this film will go on floors on a priority basis,” revealed a source from the film’s unit.
Earlier, in an interview with Hyderabad Times, Nagarjuna said, “Banggarraju is a project that I’ve been eagerly waiting for and it will be beginning this year. It will be one of my most entertaining roles and it’s going to be filled with surprises for the audience.”
Directed by Kalyan Krishna, Bangarraju will feature Ramya Krishnan as the female lead. The film is slated to hit screens next year.
