Actress Anushka Shetty is all set to team up with megastar Chiranjeevi in his highly anticipated 150th film, which will be the Telugu remake of Tamil blockbuster “Kaththi”. Tentatively titled “Kathilantodu”, the project will be directed by V.V. Vinayak.
The script work has already finished and the process of casting is underway. Even though the name of Nayanthara was heard initially, now latest reports revealed that top actress Anushka might grab the opportunity to romance Megastar in the landmark film.
A source from the film’s unit revealed that Anushka has agreed to act in the film, but she is yet to sign on the dotted line. As she is already busy with the shooting of “Baahubali 2″, “Singam 3″ and “Bhagmathi”, her dates have to be worked out.
While the pre-production work is already underway, the regular shooting will start from June.
Although Anushka has grooved to a special number with Chiranjeevi in his 2006 Telugu film “Stalin”, this will be first time they will team up as the leading pair.
In the film, Chiranjeevi will essay dual roles. The project will mark the debut of Chiranjeevi’s son
