Venkatesh was last seen on a movie set was a year ago. He wrapped Guru in November 2016. Since then he has been staying away from arc lights as he didn't find the perfect script for him.
After Teja delivered a hit with Rana (with Nene Raju Nene Mantri), he gathered confidence in Teja's directorial capabilities and has launched a movie with him. The formal pooja ceremony was held on Monday (Dec 04) in Hyderabad.
Kajal Aggarwal is being considered as one of the heroines. The film will also have another male lead. AK Entertainments and Suresh Productions are jointly producing the movie and its formal launch and regular shoot will commence on December 13, on the occasion of Venkatesh's birthday.
