After disappointing with quite a few films, Akkineni Naga Chaitanya came back harder with this year's release Majili. This Siva Nirvana directorial became the biggest solo hit of Chaitu's career and since then, the actor is being very choosy in selecting the scripts of his upcoming projects.
Currently, Chaitu is doing Venky Mama and another film with Sekhar Kammula. The regular shoot of this untitled project will go on floors in September. Sai Pallavi is teaming up with Chaitu for the first time with this movie. Meanwhile, we hear that Chaitu recently rejected a project from Dil Raju's camp.
Apparently, Raju sent a newcomer Shashi to narrate a script to Chaitu. The actor liked the idea of the film and asked Shashi to come up with a full script. But when he finally heard the final version, he wasn't satisfied and didn't give his nod for the project. It seems that the director is now searching for another hero.
