Nandamuri Kalyanram is engaged in monitoring the production works of his brother, Jr NTR’s upcoming film titled Jai Lava Kusa. The film is being produced under their home banner NTR Arts and directed by KS Ravindra aka Bobby. NTR is playing triple roles in this film, which will be for the first time in his career. Kalyanram hasn’t taken up any projects in a while now since he wants to give undivided attention to Jai Lava Kusa, according to reports.
Reports are emerging that Kalyanram will be signing the dotted line for his upcoming film soon which will be directed by a newcomer Upendra Madhav. Interestingly, the film is titled MLA and tag lined as Manchi Lakshanalunna Abbai(A man with good repute). “The film is a complete family entertainer and so, Kalyanram gave his green signal,” says a source close to the actor.
The director, Upendra Madhav, has worked with Srinu Vytla and Anil Ravipudi as assistant director, and Kalyanram knows him since those days.” The actor knows him from the time of Pataas where Upendra worked as an assistant director. Both the actor and the director believed the script had great potential,” says the source.
Kalyanram hasn’t had a release since Ism with Puri Jagannadh. Many say that he waited for the right script but never got one. But few say that he wanted to focus on Jai Lava Kusa since it is their home banner production.
The film will be bankrolled by Viswaprasad and Bharath Chowdhary. Details about rest of the cast are yet to be confirmed by the makers. Rumours are rife that the shooting might start on May 10th, 2017.
