Putting an end to all the speculations, the makers of Venky Mama announced the start date of the project. Since the time of Naga Chaitanya's Premam, there was a discussion about the collaboration of the duo Chaitanya and Venkatesh but it is only recently that a story was locked for the project. Multiple writers and directors were initially approached for the project but nothing really worked.
Now, the film unit officially announced that the film's regular shoot is going to roll from February 24th. Both the lead heroes are expected to join the shoot for the first schedule from day-after-tomorrow. Naga Chaitanya wrapped up Majili yesterday and he is not going to take any break before joining the sets of Venky Mama. Venkatesh is ready to join the floors with the energy that he gained from the success of the movie F2.
Suresh Productions and People Media Factory banners are bankrolling the movie in association with Kona Film Corporation banner. Kona Venkat will also be a part of the movie in the writing department. KS Ravindra who earlier directed Power and Sardaar Gabbar Singh is the film's director.
Payal Rajput and Raashi Khanna are rumored to be playing the heroines in the film and a formal confirmation on the same is expected to be out soon.
