Raghavendra Rao hits century with Nag & Chiru
Raghavendra Rao is just completed his 98th project Sri Manjunatha. And he is two movies away from the landmark of 100 films, which takes him into the elite club of Dasari Narayana Rao & Kodi Rama Krishna. To mark this special occasion in his career, he is planning to make a multistarrer with Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna and another big hero (could be Venky). United Producers, a consortium of the regular Raghavaendra Rao's producers would produce this prestigious project. This film's profits would be used for a social cause. This movie could go on floors in the end of this year subjected to the readiness of the story. Different Telugu music directors would compose a song each in this film. Lets wish K Raghavendra Rao a happy birthday, as it is his birthday on 23rd May.
