Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja has roped in his “Kick” co-star Shyam for a prominent role in his upcoming film. This film is titled as “Yevado Okadu” and will be produced by star producer Dil Raju.
Shyam, who played supporting roles in many Telugu and Tamil films, is popularly called as “Kick” Shyam. He starred as a police officer in Ravi Teja’s 2009 blockbuster Kick. With this film bringing him fame, Kick became his onscreen name for his later films.
With registering back to back flops at the box-office, Ravi Teja is lying low on his career graph. He who hoped to return big with “Kick2” couldn’t manage a hit and is still waiting for a successful project.
While bad luck being on his side for past few years, Ravi is trying all things to regain the lost success. In the process, he is casting Shyam hoping that “Kick” magic may repeat.
Surrender Reddy too opted for Shyam while casting in for “Race Gurram.” Reddy, who directed Kick, strongly felt that Shyam’s presence would be an additional asset for the film, and by casting him Reddy proved that his decision was true.
Surrender bagging a hit by casting in Shyam made Ravi believe strongly in Shyam’s presence, and made him sign for “Yevado Okadu.” Venu Sriram directs this film. Malayalam heroine Anupama Parameshwaran is the lady lead in this film.
