Recently few websites reported that the director Gopichand Malineni convinced Akkineni Nagarjuna for a movie. Gopichand Malineni is currently working on a script for Ravi Teja. He fired on the websites and wrote, “There is a false speculation about my next film on websites ...Pre production work for my Next film with Ravi teja garu is going on full swing ...will update further details very soon ... guys. We r going to be back very strong (sic)" through a statement on a social media website. “
Gopichand Malineni is worried that such rumours might convey a wrong message to Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja that the director is actually trying other heroes. His last outing was Sai Dharam Tej starrer Winner, which was released in 2017 and was ended up a dud at the box office. Currently Ravi Teja is busy in the shoot of Disco Raja in which Payal Rajput is playing the female lead.
