This untitled film will be produced by Sahu Garapati and Harish Peddi, who are currently bankrolling Nani's Krishnarjuna Yuddham.
Speaking to Firstpost, director Shiva Nirvana said, "After Ninnu Kori, I wanted to take a gap and do films in different genres. But I struck upon an exciting idea and felt if I turn it into a story then it’d suit Chaitanya. So I went and pitched the idea, and Chaitanya really liked it. I also suggested that it’d be nice to have Samantha be part of this story, and he asked me to go and pitch the story to her. She got really excited after she heard the story."
He added that he is figuring out shoot dates as Chaitanya is currently busy with two projects.
"Chai is on the verge of completing Savyasachi and he also has Maruthi’s next. We haven't locked the shooting days yet. We are most likely to go to the sets once he’s relieved of both the projects. Meanwhile, Samantha will also finish her current commitments," Shiva said further.
Meanwhile, Samantha is currently shooting for the Telugu and Tamil remake of Kannada indie thriller U-Turn, in which she will be seen playing a journalist on a mission.
A report said that the duo will begin shooting for the project later this year.
