Karthi-Nagarjuna Movie Launched by Amala
Karthi and Nagarjuna are coming together for a romantic entertainer that will be made in both Tamil and Telugu. The film will be directed by Telugu director Vamshi Paidipally, who has made films like Yevadu and Brindavanam. NTR Jr, who worked with the director in Brindavanam, was initially in talks to do the film and now, Karthi has replaced him.
Says Rajeev Kamineni, one of the makers of the film, “We were looking at two heroes who had some presence in both the Tamil and Telugu film industries. Though Nagarjuna has done very few Tamil films, he is well known in Tamil Nadu and Karthi’s films have been doing well in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. We approached Karthi even before the release of Madras and he was happy with the script and even gave a couple of inputs.”
Rajeev reveals that though the film will have commercial elements, it is actually a romantic entertainer. “There will be one main heroine and we are looking to cast a top heroine for the role. The others are also being finalized,” he adds
