If ongoing buzz in media and film industry is to be believed, Akkineni Nagarjuna will be seen sharing the screen space with none other than Mass girl Jyothika in his upcoming movie Bangarraju, which will be directed by Kalyan Krishna. Bangarraju is a sequel to Nagarjuna, Ramya Krishnan and Lavanya Tripathi starrer Soggade Chinni Nayana. Earlier it was heard that Nagarjuna was planning to bring Lady Superstar Nayantara on the board to play the female lead but as the actress is busy in the upcoming project and not able to allot the date for Nagarjuna starrer Bangarraju, has rejected the offer. Now Nagarjuna is planning to rope Jyothika to play the female lead role in Bangarraju.
The latest reports suggest that Nagarjuna has approached Jyothika for the same role and the actress seems to have given her nod to the makers. If everything will go accordingly, very soon the official announcement will be made regarding the inclusion of Jyothika.
Earlier Jyothika and Nagarjuna have worked together in the 2004 blockbuster movie ‘Mass’ and fans will be excited to see this combo for Bangarraju on the screen.
Meanwhile, Nagarjuna is currently busy in his upcoming project Manmadhudu2, the sequel of Manmadhudu. Recently the makers have wrapped up the shoot of its first schedule. However, Kalyan Krishna Kurasala will direct the sequel of Soggade Chinni Nayana, which is titled as Bangarraju. It is learnt that Nag and Kalyan Krishna are still in confusion about making sequel or prequel for.
Jyothika has acted in some Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu and Hindi films. Jyothika made her her debut in Tollywood with Tagore, in which Megastar Chiranjeevi played the lead roles. Last year Jyothika has delivered hit movies- Naachiyaar and Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
If this time Jyothika says yes to Nagarjuna, once again she will be seen in Tollywood.
