Chiranjeevi, Ravi Teja kickstart 'Mega 154' shooting schedule in Hyderabad
Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi and popular actor Ravi Teja have kickstarted a crucial shooting schedule for their upcoming film, tentatively titled Mega 154. Per reports, the shoot, which will take place in Hyderabad, will be quite time-consuming and will cover several instrumental scenes from the movie. The film is being directed by KS Ravindra (Power) who popularly goes by "Bobby" in the industry. Here's more.
Why does this story matter?
- Expectations from Mega 154 are at an all-time high considering Chiranjeevi's last venture, Acharya, co-starring son Ram Charan, fizzled out at the box office.
- He last tasted success in the form of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy (2019).
- Moreover, since Bobby has delivered commercial successes in the form of Jai Lava Kusa and Venky Mama, his association with Mega 154 makes it even more promising.
'The film will have enough mass-appealing elements'
A source close to the film's development informed Bollywood Hungama, "Today, the makers began a new and lengthy shooting schedule in Hyderabad. Chiranjeevi is also taking part in the shoot, alongside other actors." The source further underlined that "Bobby is making sure the film will have enough mass-appealing elements from start to end" and Teja will be seen in a "crucial role."
Teja will probably play Chiranjeevi's brother in 'Mega 154'
Shruti Haasan will play the female lead in Mega 154. To recall, the Megastar welcomed her on board earlier this year when their pictures had gone viral. Early reports suggest that Teja will play Chiranjeevi's brother. Moreover, the makers shared a powerful poster in June that showcased Chiru's hand holding on to an anchor in the backdrop of the sea amidst a torrential downpour.
