In the event the business grapevine is not anything to go by, celebrity Nawazuddin Siddiqui will soon make his Telugu introduction alongside celebrity Venkatesh at a yet-untitled job.
After playing a notable part in Rajinikanth’s Petta, it seems like Nawaz has put his eyes Telugu filmdom. He is rumored to have been signed to get an important part at Venkatesh’s next job with manager Tharun Bhascker.
According to inside sources, the job is going to be put against the background of a horse racing club at Hyderabad.
“Venkatesh enjoyed the script also has given his nod. Tharun is now busy making some small adjustments to the script and after he is through, a formal announcement on the job can be anticipated. It is going to be a narrative of a jockey who proceeds to develop into a horse-racing-gambler. It will have great scope for action and humor,” a source previously told Hindustan Times.
If everything goes as planned, the movie will go on the flooring from November or December this year. The pre-production function is already underway.
Venkatesh is now busy wrapping up forthcoming Telugu humor, Venky Mama. The movie, directed by Bobby, marks the first-time cooperation of Venkatesh and his nephew Naga Chaitanya.
This is Raashi’s second excursion with Bobby because she was also a part of the final directorial venture Jai Lava Kusa.
Rakul Preet Singh was initially thought of as one of the female leads. But because of her hectic work schedule, she could not take time out.
The movie, a romantic comedy, was generated by Vijay Deverakonda and largely features novices.
Tharun’s last directorial venture was Telugu friend comedy Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi, which despite excellent response from critics, did not click on the box-office.
