This is where 'Bangarraju' will stream after its theatrical run?
Bangarraju, which is the 21st full length feature film for Naga Chaitanya, is creating a lot of buzz. The film, shooting of which is still on, already has a streaming partner in place. News has it that ZEE5 has bagged the digital rights to the film that would mark the young star's reunion with his father Nagarjuna Akkineni after Manam and Premam.
Why does it matter?
- Bangarraju is a sequel to Nagarjuna's Soggade Chinni Nayana.
- The 2016 film is a fantasy drama that revolved around a dead man, who returns to life with the help of the God of Death to settle down his son's problems.
- Though that movie didn't have Chaitanya aboard, Bangarraju will reportedly see him playing Nagarjuna's grandson, which makes it all the more interesting.
Why did makers cancel release of film's second song today?
LetsOTT Global, a trusted site for streaming platform news, informed, "Post theatrical streaming rights (of Bangarraju have been) bagged by ZEE5." There has been no confirmation on this front from the makers though. We were also supposed to get another song of the film today, but the team is holding that back due to the tragic demise of noted lyricist Sirivennela Seetharama Sastry.

Teaser showed Chaitanya following the footsteps of Nagarjuna
Last month on Chaitanya's birthday, we got his first look teaser. Going by it, we can say that the Telugu film will be set against a rural backdrop and the 35-year-old's role would be vibrant. The 58-second-long teaser started with a life-size photograph of Nagarjuna, under which his accessories were kept. The Love Story actor wore them one by one and entered the scene.
We also got Chaitanya's teaser from 'Thank You' last month
Chaitanya's body language reflected Nagarjuna's from the previous film and it was surely an emotional moment for their fans. Directed by Kalyan Krishna, the drama has Krithi Shetty as Naga Lakshmi, while Ramya Krishna reprises her role of Satyabhama. Meanwhile, read our review of the film's first single Laddunda.
