Director Venu Udugula, who made a fairly confident debut with the family drama, Needi Naadi Oke Kadha, which explores the strained relationship between father and son, seems to have decided on his next. According to a source, Venu is currently in contention to direct actor Karthi in an intense drama to be made simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil.
“It’s an emotion-packed realistic drama that deals with a contemporary issue. There’s also an underlying intense love story and Karthi will be seen in an out-and-out serious role."
The film’s story will become the talking point in South India and it’s going to be an extremely bold attempt. Venu is going to meet Karthi for a detailed narration on April 15 and is confident of getting a positive response from the actor,” informs a source.
Renowned producer Kalaipuli S Thanu will shepherd the Tamil version, while Sudhakar Cherukuri will bankroll the Telugu version.
“After listening to the script, both Thanu and Sudhakar expressed their excitement to start the proceedings. The film will have several big names from Telugu and Tamil in prominent roles. If everything falls into place, the untitled movie will go on floors later this year once Karthi wraps up his present commitments – Chinna Babu and an untitled film with Rajat Ravi Shankar,” the source adds.
