Rumours that the project has been shelved have been laid to rest.

Rumours have been flying thick and fast that the Trivikram-Jr NTR film has been almost shelved. The reason? Rajamouli has advanced his film’s shooting by two months, and requires Jr NTR’s dates earlier than planned. However, a source confirms that these are nothing but rumours.

“The project is very much happening. Trivikram is in regular touch with Jr NTR and the project may take place in March and have a September release,” says a source close to the actor. 

Reviews of the ace director’s recent film Agnyaathavaasi have been bad, but the source says, “He is a star director and one can’t judge him based on one film’s failure. In the end, he is a talented and big director.”

Jr NTR is also keen on doing this film as it will be his first project with Trivikram. Reports say that he is already working out to lose nearly 20 kilos before the shooting starts.
