Filmmaker Jyothi Krishna, son of producer AM Rathnam, returns to filmmaking after a decade-long hiatus with a project featuring actor Gopichand. According to a source, Gopichand was impressed with a single line from the script, and wanted Jyothi to complete work on it. The film will reportedly bring out Gopichand’s hitherto untapped talent as a comic hero. The film is scheduled to go on floors next year, with the script work almost complete. Jyothi’s last Telugu directorial was in 2003 with Nee Manasu Naaku Telusu. The film starred Tarun, Trisha and Shriya.
