After weeks of being missing in action, word has it that Rana Daggubati will finally be back in Hyderabad in the first week of October. And once he’s back, reveals a source, he’s going to announce many films — not in the capacity of an actor but in that of a producer. “Suresh Babu owns many theatres, but there aren’t enough Telugu films releasing. To fill the gap, Rana has decided to produce multiple limited-budget Telugu films. He is simultaneously searching for new talent,” says the source.
Rana, who hopes to produce nearly 15 films in a year, may start by announcing five to six films immediately. “Many young filmmakers and artists had approached Suresh Babu with their ideas, but he’d asked them to wait till Rana was back to decide about those projects,” adds the source.
