Nagarjuna finished the shooting of the film ‘Kedi’ and starting a new journey. Nagarjuna is playing the lead role in a bilingual (Telugu and Tamil) film. ‘Payanam’ is the title for the Tamil version and no name is selected yet for the Telugu version. Prakash raj is also playing an important role in this movie.
‘Akasamantha’ fame Radha Mohan is directing this movie. Nagarjuna said,” When Radha Mohan told me the story I told him that I will act in this film. The story is different. After a long time, I am acting in a film which has action, masala and comedy.”When asked about the story Nagarjuna said,” If I tell the story now, the flavor will be lost. But I will tell the two line of the story now. Terrorists hijack a plane which takes off from Chennai and force it to land in Tirupathi. Whether their plans succeed keeping the passengers as ransom is the rest of the story.”
An airport set was erected in Ramoji Film City for this film. The producer has spent 20% of the budget for this set. Art director Kadhir has designed runway, traffic airport control and two planes. Is this inspired by Kandahar hijack incident?
It is learnt that Anushka and Bhavana are fighting for the heroine spot.While Nagarjuna is inclined towards Anushka, producers are considering Bhavana as she is much cheaper and with in their budget.
Lets see who will win the heroione race?
