Several heroes were in discussions at various stages to play lead in the next film to be directed by Satish Vegesna, who made the national award winning family drama 'Sathamanam Bhavathi' in his last attempt. And, Nithin has finally come on board.
During the promotions of Sathamanam Bhavathi, producer Dil Raju announced that he would bankroll the director's next film as well. The film was titled 'Srinivasa Kalyanam', another family entertainer. Sai Dharam Tej was first considered but Dil Rju allegedly dropped him with the idea of roping in a star hero. Ram Charan and NTR were approached, in that order, and prolonged discussions were held with both the stars. After the futile attempts, Dil Raju finally signed Nithin.
'Dil', released in 2003, was the first production venture of distributor-turned-producer Raju. The super success of the film established the distributor in the industry as Dil Raju. 15 years after that film, the ace producer is now gearing up to reunite with Nithin for their second film together. Further details of cast & crew will be revealed shortly.
Nithin is currently shooting for Krishna Chaitanya's film, a Trivikram-PK joint production venture.
