Director Anil Ravipudi continuing his succes streak delivered another super hit with Sarikeru Neekevvaru that starred superstar Mahesh Babu. The film before its release was predicted to become a massive blockbuster. But, it ended as fifth highest grosser in Tollywood.
Many expected Anil Ravipudi to make his next with a star hero. There were even reports that, Anil Ravipudi will direct megastar Chiranjeevi. But, all these turned false now. It's official now that, the director lined up F3, sequel to his blockbuster film F2, as his next directorial venture.
Venkatesh and Varun Tej who starred in the first installment will feature in F3 as well. However, the question is who the third big star to star in the film. Anil Ravipudi approached seceral stars including Mahesh Babu, but he didn't get acceptance from any of those.
Particularly, Mahesh Babu is not keen to do multi-starrers. Instead, he asked the director to come up with a fresh and commercially viable script. Nonetheless, Anil Ravipudi wants to make F3 first.
With most of the star heroes are occupied with other commitments, Anil Ravipudi may approach a medium range hero.
Anil Ravipudi who right now is in his hometown is working on script alongwith his writing team. Other details of the film will be announced soon after Anil finalizing the third hero.
