The film which has won a state award,  will now be sampled by the  Hindi audience as well. The director who made his debut in Telugu by remaking Charminar in Telugu as Krishnama Kalapindi Iddarani is upbeat about entering Bollywood with this film. Interestingly, the film will star Sushant Singh Rajput. Chandru says, “Producer Sridhar Lagadapati who is producing the Telugu film, called me a couple of days ago and asked me to watch Sushant’s cameo performance in PK, which I found to be interesting and I gave him my feedback. Sridhar who wants to enter B-Town has had his initial discussion with Sushant, who has liked the story. The talks are now at the initial stages and will take off once the producer confirms the dates,” he says.

Meanwhile Chandru  wants to  start a film with actor Shivarajkumar. “I have committed to Shivarajkumar and I am keen to work with him. In fact, he has shown the same interest and is happy to accommodate his dates. At present, I am waiting for my Telugu film to release followed with Male directed by Tejas. If all goes well, I will take up the Hindi project after finishing my prior commitments in Kannada and Telugu,” he says.
