Rana Daggubati Joins Pawan Kalyan’s Next; Shooting Will Begin In January 2021


Rana Daggubati, Telugu actor, will star alongside Pawan Kalyan in the upcoming Telugu film directed by Saagar K Chandra. While the film was officially launched on Monday, shooting will begin in January, 2021.

The film, which has no title as yet, is produced by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under the Sithara Entertainments banner. Although Suryadevara Naga Vamsi bought the Telugu remake rights of the hit Malayalam film Ayyappanum Koshiyum (starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon) in March, there has been no confirmation as yet that this film will be a remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum.

On Monday, Sithara Entertainments announced that Rana Daggubati would join the cast. Daggubati also shared the announcement on his social media channel.

The pooja ceremony for the film was, however, attended only by Kalyan.

In October, Sithara Entertainments had announced that Pawan Kalyan would play a cop in the film. They had announced, “favourite cop of Telugu cinema is back in a high voltage role.”

The music for the film will be composed by SS Thaman and Prasad Murella has been roped in as the cinematographer. Editing will be handled by Navin Nooli, while Prasad Murella will be the art director of the film.

Saagar K Chandra has previously directed Appatlo Okadundevadu, a 2016 Telugu-language action crime film. Ayyappanum Koshiyum is on course for a Tamil and Hindi remake. 5 Star Kathiresan has acquired the Tamil remake rights of Ayyappanum Koshiyum, and Bollywood actor-producer  John Abraham had acquired the Hindi remake rights of the film under his JA Entertainment banner.
