On the occasion of Vinayaka Chavithi and Chiranjeevi’s 65th birthday, the first look and motion poster of ‘Acharya’ were released by Ram Charan to a stupendous response from netizens. Set against the backdrop of Dharmasthali, the poster showcased the senior hero from the backside as he attacks a group of goons with a knife in his hand. Touted to be a socio-political actioner, the film comes with the caption “A Comrade’s Quest for Dharma”.
Meanwhile, it’s already evident that Ram Charan is playing an extended cameo in Acharya and recently, speculations went rife that he will be making a stunning entry during the interval bang of the film and his power-packed role is expected to last for 25-30 minutes. During a recent conversation with a leading daily, the Konidela scion talked about his part in his father’s 152nd project.
“The stardom, stature and public reception that I own is all due to my father. It’s an honour and dream come true to share the screen with him. Earlier, my dad played a special cameo in my 2015 film ‘Bruce Lee’ and similarly, I too appeared in a dance moment with him in ‘Khaidi No. 150’,” the ‘RRR’ star said.
Ram Charan also added that it’s his mother Surekha’s dream to see both the father and son on the same frame. “My mom’s dream is to see both me and my father on the silver screen in full-fledged roles and I hope that our combo in Acharya will create a lasting impression.”
Starring Kajal Aggarwal as the leading lady, Acharya will showcase Chiranjeevi as a Naxalite-turned-social reformer. Directed by Koratala Siva who is on a roll with consecutive blockbusters like Mirchi, Srimanthudu, Janatha Garage and Bharat Ane Nenu, the shooting of the film is likely to resume from September. While Mani Sharma has been roped in to compose the music, Regina Cassandra has sizzled for a special number before the lockdown.
