Megastar Chiranjeevi and Ravi Teja. (By Arrangement)
In what is possibly the biggest development in Tollywood in recent times, we have reliably learnt that Ravi Teja is likely to share screen space with Megastar Chiranjeevi in his next, #154, directed by Bobby.
The makers were initially looking for a Bollywood actor for a powerful role in the action drama. However, they changed their minds, and decided to approach a Telugu hero instead – and have apparently picked Ravi Teja.
When the script team narrated the story to Ravi Teja, he is believed to have been particularly excited about the opportunity to work with Chiranjeevi, one of his favourite heroes.
"Ravi Teja was ready to come on board, given the fact that it was Megastar’s film. He wants to do it to make a great memory," says a source close to the development.
The makers are currently working out the shooting schedules to coordinate with Ravi Teja’s dates diary.
Shooting for the film is already progressing briskly, and if all goes well, he may join the sets in April.
