Teja has bounced back with the movie Nene Raju Nene Mantri. The film which features Rana is a major hit and brought the director back into light. However Teja has to face another flop with the movie Seetha after that. After taking a gap, Teja has announced two films Rakshasa Rajyamlo Ravanasurudu and Alivelu Venkata Ramana.
For these two films he has roped in Rana and Gopichand respectively. While these two projects are in pre production stages, lock down has effected it and all the works are stopped.
However Teja has now decided that he needs to be ready to shoot, whenever government gives permission. It is known that in Telangana, lock down is extended till May 29th and a clear picture about shoot resume date will come after that. So Teja has decided to do online auditions for this film.
Though government allow to shoot, they will at first give permissions to do shoot with limited cast and crew, probably like 20 or so. If that happens, Teja who generally shoots with limited cast and crew can start without any fuss. So he is finalizing all the cast and crew through online auditions. Probably this is the best way to do pre production works for other films too.
