Even as he tweeted about his health, his daughter-in-law and Ram Charan’s wife Upasana Konidela took to twitter and wished her ‘mamayya’ a speedy recovery. Goes without saying fans around the world are wishing for the speedy recovery of their megastar.
Acharya is an action drama that is being produced by Ram Charan and Niranjan Reddy. It’s a film being made under Konidela banner and stars Chiranjeevi and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead. But the best part is that Ram Charan will be playing an important supporting role in the film. Another interesting fact is that Mahesh Babu was approached to do an extended cameo, but things did not work out. So, Ram Charan is finally doing the part.
As for the heroine, Kajal Aggarwal was not the first choice for Acharya. Initially, Trisha was signed for the film and the Tamil beauty even participated in the shoot. Later, she cited creative differences and walked out of the film.
The film being directed by Koratala Siva is expected to release in the second half of 2021. This is the first time that Koratala Siva and Chiranjeevi are working together.
