Over the years, Venkatesh has been distinctly doing varied roles in his career. Being hailed as one of the successful stars of the tinsel town, he is soon going to explore a different medium altogether. Along with the likes of his counterparts Nagarjuna, Chiranjeevi, Jr NTR and his nephew Rana Daggubati, the 56-year old actor is going to make a foray into television with a talk show — Guru. Interestingly, the show will be produced by renowned director Srinu Vaitla. Apparently, it would be of an interactive nature and will be aired during prime time on a popular regional channel.
The show will have a unique concept where participants would open up on any kind of problems they have and the solutions will be provided adding humour by the celebrities, who had gone through a similar experience in their professional and personal lives,” informs a source.
“Vaitla recently called up Venkatesh, who was on a vacation to Europe and proposed his idea of casting him as the talk show host. Pleased with the concept, the actor responded positively and said he will decide on what to take up next once he returns from his vacation,” adds the source.
If everything falls in place, this project marks the second collaboration of Venky with Vaitla after Namo Venkatesa, a comic caper released in 2010.
