After the Venkatesh and Naga Chaitanya muti-starrer Venky Mama was launched with a grand function, it took some time for the movie to take off, owing to heroine issues. Rakul Preet, who was originally touted to be playing the female lead, backed off from the project citing date clashes with her other commitments. However, Rakul has since signed up for Nagarjuna's next - Manmadhudu 2 and Raashi Khanna was signed on to play Chaitanya's pair in Venky Mama.
It was recently announced that this movie finally went on floors with both Naga Chaitanya and Venkatesh taking part in the first schedule shoot. We now have an exciting update from the shooting spot. A little birdie close to Venky Mama's unit said, "Chay's intro scenes in this movie are now being shot. The shoot is happening on the banks of the Godavari river. The scene will have Venkatesh welcoming Naga Chaitanya to his village."
This movie, bankrolled by D Suresh Babu's Suresh Productions banner, is directed by KS Ravindra who has also co-written the script with Kona Venkat. Thaman is scoring the music and cinematography is by Prasad Murella, for this movie, which has Payal Rajput as the second female lead.
