This is Chiranjeevi’s first collaboration with Meher Ramesh, who’s known for films like Billa and Kantri. The makers elaborate in a press note that the title Bholaa Shankar is apt for Chiranjeevi as he’s ‘a kind-hearted genuine person who has a childlike innocence’. They also write that the Mega in the title poster is shaped like a hill to indicate ‘how the Megastar is high like a hill’.
Bholaa Shankar is a synonym for Lord Shiva and the poster indicates the film might be seen in Kolkata, with a Howrah Bridge and Kali Mata temple catching attention. Mahati Swara Sagar has been brought on-board for the BGM of the motion poster. Anil Sunkara’s AK Entertainments will be producing the film, in association with Creative Commercials. Shooting for the film will commence soon and it will hit screens in 2022.
Keerthy Suresh has also been roped in for the exciting project to play his sister. Sharing a special video on his birthday, she wrote, “They say the bond between siblings is the purest and the strongest. This Rakhi we celebrate the special bond along with some very exciting news. I also take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy Birthday @chiranjeevikonidela sir! I wish for your happiness and good health for years to come. Working alongside you is a dream for many like for myself and I can’t wait to kick start this marvellous journey! Happy Birthday Annayya! (sic)”
Chiranjeevi will also soon be seen in Koratala Siva’s Acharya, Jayam Mohan Raja’s Godfather – the Telugu remake of Lucifer and a film with director Bobby, the title of which will be revealed soon. Further details are awaited.
