What you heard is absolutely true. Chiranjeevi wants more comedy in Acharya and he has instructed the same to Koratala Siva and his writers. The work regarding the same is happening as of now.
The pandemic has changed a lot of things in the film business as well. Acharya is a film that is quite serious in its content. But as the pandemic has happened, the audience is in no mood to take so many emotions and that is the reason, he wants some fun and has instructed the director to add a few fun scenes in the film.
The work is done and the talk is that Vennela Kishore’s role is being increased for the same purpose. Kajal is the heroine of this film which has music by Mani Sharma.
