‘King’ Nagarjuna has been facing a lot of disappointments lately. After ‘Soggade Chinni Nayana’ & ‘Oopiri’ he didn’t see any success. Even production-wise, he produced ‘Nirmala Convent’ & ‘Hello’ starring his second son Akhil Akkineni ended up as a failure at the box-office with poor receptions. Even ‘Devadas’ a collaboration with Nani, couldn’t fetch him a success.
After a lot of discussions and contemplation’s, he gave a nod to Rahul Ravindran, who debuted with ‘Chi.La.Sow’, starring Sushanth, his nephew, for a sequel to him one of the evergreen films, ‘Manmadhudu’. The film is tentatively titled as ‘Manmadhudu – 2’, which will be produced under his maiden banner ‘Manam Enterprises’. The film has been under pre-production for a couple of months now. The latest update is that the film will go on to sets in March. The shotting of the first schedule will commence on the 15th of March.
The exciting update is that the film’s director Rahul Ravindran convinced Amala Akkineni to be a part of the project and her addition is going to bring a lot of buzz to the movie. An official confirmation on the same is awaited.
