Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi is currently awaiting the release of filmmaker Koratala Siva’s Acharya, in which he is rumored to have played dual roles. The film stars Ram Charan in the lead role.
Acharya, according to reports, will be about a social reformer who has become a middle-aged Naxalite who is fighting against the treasury department against the misuse and fraud of temple funds and donations.
Acharya is the first to see Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan in a full-length role. A few years back, Chiranjeevi acted in a cameo in Ram Charan’s Telugu film Bruce Lee: The Fighter.
Chiranjeevi has two more plans. It was recently announced that he will be starring in the Telugu remake of the Tamil film Vedalam. The project is titled as Bola Shankar and stars Keerthi Suresh as his sister.
