Actor Sai Dharam Tej has announced his next film with debut director Karthik Dandu. His 15th film will be jointly bankrolled by BVSN Prasad’s Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra LLP banner and director Sukumar‘s Sukumar Writings. The untitled film is touted to be a mystical thriller, a genre that Sai would reportedly be exploring for the first time.
The poster features a hexagram inside a circle with symbols on each triangle and possibly the eye of Tej in the centre. All of this seems to be imprinted on a broken wooden surface, much like the trunk of a tree.
Sai Dharam Tej took to Twitter to announce the news on Friday, August 14.

Karthik used to be an assistant of Sukumar who is also doubling up as the screenplay writer for the film. The rest of the cast and crew details are yet to be revealed.
Meanwhile, the actor who last featured in Prati Roju Pandage will next be seen in Subbu’s Solo Brathuke So Better which is reportedly eyeing a direct-OTT release on Zee5, after its release on 1 May 2020 was postponed due to the pandemic. The team has completed the entire shoot except for a few songs and is almost on the verge of wrapping up post-production.
He also has a project with director Deva Katta, where he will be seen playing the role of an IAS officer.
His Prati Roju Pandage helmed by Maruthi Dasari dealt with the relationship between a grandson and his grandfather and was a box office success. It also fetched decent reviews from critics. Raashi Khanna had paired opposite the star in the film.
