Lakshmana team is getting bigger each day! Just a day after the team announced its leading lady, now we hear that Crazy Star Ravichandran has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Anup starrer Lakshmana.

The movie was launched amidst huge pomp and flair recently. R Chandru, who has given blockbuster movies like Taj Mahal and Chaarminar, is directing the movie. 

R Chandru has revived Ajay Rao and Prem’s soaring career with Taj Mahal and Chaarminar respectively. This star director is now one of the most sought-out directors in Telugu as well; his Telugu directorial venture Krishnamma Kalipindi iddirini, remake of Kannada movie Chaarminar, which released last week, is running successfully at the box office. Superstar Mahesh Babu had also congratulated the team for giving a power-packed movie. 

R Chandru was supposed to direct Baadshah with Shivarajkumar; since Shivanna is presently busy with Santeyalli Ninta Kabeera and other projects, R Chandru is said to have opted to direct Anup. Baadsahah will take off by the end of the year.

Crazy Star Ravichandran, who is busy in small screen, radio and with a couple of projects, has Love You Aliya and Apoorva lined up for release. Drishya movie brought in the much-needed break to Ravichandran, who was at the peak of retirement as most of his films had hit the rock bottom. Looks like Lakshmana will help Ravi regain the top position, again!
