Ravi Teja's next to be called 'Disco Raj...

 

Reports are that it will begin with an official pooja on January 26.


Tollywood’s Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja is desperately in need of a hit, with his previous film bombing at the box office. He has recently signed a deal to star in a movie that will be directed by Vi Anand of Oka Kshanam and Ekadiki Pothavu Chinnavada fame. According to reports, the film will be a science fiction, a genre that is sure to bring in the audiences to the theatres. The film will have three leading ladies -- Nabha Natesh, Payal Rajput and Priyanka Jawalkar -- sharing screen space with Ravi Teja.

This project, titled Disco Raja, was supposed to go on to the floors much earlier but was delayed for various reasons. Reports are that it will begin with an official pooja on January 26. Incidentally, this event will coincide with Ravi Teja’s birthday this year.

Director Vi Anand made his directorial debut with Hrudayam Ekkada Unnadi and has directed Appuchi Gramam in Tamil, Tiger, Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada and Okka Kshanam.

Ravi Teja’s last film release was Amar Akbar Anthony, which made it to the silver screens on November 16, 2018. Directed by Srinu Vaitla, Amar Akbar Anthony was bankrolled by Mythrie Movie Makers. While Ileana D'Cruz and Ravi Teja play the lead pair, The film did not fare well at the box office. Director Srinu Vaitla and hero Ravi Teja had a good track record together having worked in three films - Nee Kosam (1999), Venky (2004) and Dubai Seenu (2007). However, Amar Akbar Anthony seems to have broken this success streak.

Following this debacle, the production house had dropped plans to make another film with the hero. Talks were on with director Santosh Srinivas and Ravi Teja to remake the Tamil blockbuster Theri after Power Star Pawan Kalyan decided to opt out of it. But with the production house opting out of it, the fate of the remake hangs in balance.
