Chaitanya Akkineni has been having a great run in his career in the last few years with some good films under his belt. Premam, Dochay, Ye Maya Chesav and Saahasam Swaasaga Saagipo are few attempts by the young Akkineni lad to do some different films and his efforts seem to be continuing in the same direction. Chaitanya’s upcoming film is said to be a thriller and will be directed by Chandoo Mondeti. Titled Savyasachi, the buzz around the film is already very high after the poster of the film was released about a month ago. And according to latest developments, Savyasachi might just become bigger than we thought it to be.
It is being reported that Tamil top actor R. Madhavan has been roped in for a key role in the film and will be sharing screen space with Naga Chaitanya for the first time. “The film’s director, Chandoo Mondeti, felt that a star actor from another industry will bring a fresh appeal to a significant role in the film. He felt Madhavan would bring authenticity and a glow to the great role. The rest of the modalities are being worked out,” a report in DC quoted a source.
If this materialises, the film will be the most anticipated for in the coming season in Tollywood. Madhavan enjoys huge following in the Telugu states even though he hasn’t done a straight film in Telugu. Maddy’s films are often dubbed into Telugu and first film, Sakhi, directed by Mani Ratnam laid the platform for his admiration in all the South Indian states.
