Despite his impressive performances in love stories, Naga Chaitanya has consistently failed to attain a mass image that could sustain his stardom for a long time. His attempts to break into the mass genre with movies like Josh, Dhada, Thadaka, Bezawada, Autonagar Surya, and Yuddham Sharanam have all fallen short of his expectations. However, Chay’s hits such as 100% Love, Manam, Premam, Majili, and Love Story have all been successful in the class story genre.
Recently, Chay has taken on a new project, Custody, directed by Venkat Prabhu, in which he plays the role of a constable in an action drama. The film’s teaser has already been released, and Chay’s fans are optimistic about it, as Venkat Prabhu is well-known for delivering big hits in Tamil cinema. The film features Krithi Shetty as the female lead and is scheduled to release on May 12th in both Tamil and Telugu.
It remains to be seen if Custody will finally be the breakthrough Chay needs to attain the mass image he desires. With his fans eagerly awaiting the release, all eyes are on Chay and Venkat Prabhu to see if they can deliver the mass hit that has eluded him thus far.
