Tollywood star Nani is a busy man these days, with multiple projects being lined up with different talented directors. As his Jersey gears up for release on the 19th of April, Nani is now caught up with the shoot for the yet-to-be-titled Vikram Kumar film. And even before the shoot for the film reaches the halfway mark, Nani has already set up his next film with Mohan Krishna Indraganti of Sammohanam fame. Pairing up with him in this tense action thriller will be Aditi Rao Hydari.
Interestingly, it was Dulquer Salmaan who was first brought on board this project to play the second lead. But since the actor is busy with a film each in Malayalam, Tamil and Hindi, he found his way out of the team citing date issues. As a result, Mohan Krishna got in both the lead actors of his last film Sammohanam. The film will now star Nani, Sudheer Babu and Aditi Rao as a team. According to sources, this film is a cop-vs-criminal thriller which will have loads of action sequences. It has been the long time wish of the director to work on such a film, with things finally falling in place now. The shoot for the same will go on floors by the end of August, once Nani gets done with his portions for his ongoing love drama with Vikram Kumar.
As of now, all the focus is on Jersey, the upcoming sports drama in which Nani essays the role of a late bloomer who goes on to book his place in the Indian team. Nani had taken up special training with well-known cricket coaches for the role, and is said to have come up with a terrific performance. Jersey is directed by debutant Gowtam Tinnanuri, and has music by Anirudh Ravichander, who marks this as his second film in Telugu after Pawan Kalyan's Agnyathavaasi.
