To be directed by Vamsi Krishna, the makers had approached Rana Daggubati and things almost fell in place. However, latest reports have a different story altogether. According to latest reports, the makers have now brought onboard actor Nani to play the lead role after Rana Daggubati couldn’t take up the project due to his prior commitments.
Reports are doing rounds that Nani will start shooting for this biopic in July or August after Nani wraps up Bigg Boss Telugu 2. According to emerging reports, Nani is quite excited about the biopic and is keen to come onboard the film.
Reports also reveal that Rana Daggubati couldn’t take up this project since he already had agreed to do play the titular role in the biopic of Kodi Ramamurthy Naidu who is one of the greatest wrestlers in India from the state of Andhra Pradesh. It is being said that Rana couldn’t allocate dates to the biopic in Tiger Nageswara Rao and hence had to give it a pass. Rana Daggubati is currently shooting for his upcoming film 1945.
Nani is currently shooting for his upcoming multi-starrer with Akkineni Nagarjuna which is being directed by Sriram Aditya. Bankrolled by Vyjayanthi Movies, this multi-starrer is yet to be titled and will have Nani playing a doctor in the plot.
