RP Patnaik to score for Chiranjeevi
The game of musical chairs is going on for Chiranjeevi's film with Vijaya
Bapineedu. It was KS Ravi Kumar, who was supposed to direct this venture.
But the miserable failure of 'Bava Nachadu' has triggered Vijaya Bapineedu
to square on EVV Satya Narayana to direct his film. But the recent spate
of failures from EVV in the form of 'Thank You Subba Rao' and 'Veedekkadi
Mogudandi' has put Vijaya Bapineedu again in the fix. According to the
highly placed sources belonging to Vijaya Bapineedu, it is revealed
that VN Aditya is the new choice for the film. VN Aditya has directed
the recent runaway hit 'Manasanta Nuvve'. Though RP
Patnaik did not confirmed the report, he added that RP is going
score the music if VN Aditya directs the film. We have to wait and see
who the final director for the film is in the months to come!
Ramoji Rao introduces CM son as hero
Ritesh, the second son of Maharashra Chief Minister Vaisal Rao Deshmukh,
is acting in the Hindi version of 'Nuvve Kavali' being produced by Usha
Kiron movies. K Vijaya Bhaskar, who directed Telugu version, is roped
in to deal the Hindi version too. The first schedule of the film was
recently started in Hyderabad. The news of this film is kept under wraps
and is not revealed to press due to the security reasons.
