Initially, megastar Chiranjeevi got excited when his director Koratala Siva proposed superstar Mahesh Babu’s name for a brief, yet crucial role in their combo film Acharya. Even, Mahesh Babu was enthusiastic to star in the film, though he had his own reservations. But, things changed after Mahesh Babu quoting huge price, besides asking time from makers to make his decision.
In order to meet the release date deadline, the actor who will play the special role needs to join the film’s shoot from next month. So, Chiru is said to be planning to implement Plan B.
As is known, mega power star Ram Charan was the original choice for the role. But, due to his commitment for RRR, he couldn’t do Acharya. It is known that, Rajamouli asks his lead actors not to sign any other films, until they wrap up their part of work and there’s no time limit for him to finish his films.
Likewise, Charan didn’t want to take the risk had asked Koratala to look for other option only when the director proposed Mahesh Babu’s name. However, it seems, Chiru now wants to rope in his son for the role in Acharya.
Chiru is said to have asked mega producer DVV Danayya to talk to Rajamouli whether he would have any qualms if Charan shoots for Acharya in the schedules gap of RRR.
In worse situation, Chiru himself is planning to contact Rajamouli to explain the situation. We need to wait and see whether Rajamouli give his acceptance for Chiru’s Plan B.
