Raashi Khanna after attracting many with Tholiprema, seemed like finally she is a replacement for Kajal and Tamannah in Telugu.But the actress ended up sidelined after a disaster like Srinivasa Kalyanam. After that movie, she accepted one with Vijay Devarakonda, but the movie will take longer to start.
It is her own planning that resulted in such situation. She signed more Tamil films and while they did decent business, they did not end up helping her build an image.The acesss did Imaikka Nodigal and Adangamaru in Tamil. Both ended up as moderate hits but her character has been sidelined more than in Telugu films.
Now, she has one with Vishal, Temper remake and we know that she doesn’t have much to perform in them too.We have to wait and see, if she can really change that situation in Telugu for better.Akkineni Nageswara Rao, the legendary actor made Devadasu an immortal lover and character on Telugu Screen with his portrayal in 1953.
He is the one who inspired even Dilip Kumar to do the character in a certain way. The story by Sharath, legendary Bengali writer became such a classic that many wanted to try different iterations of the story as writers, films and theatre dramas.Now, Akkineni Naga Chaitanya is looking to try another modern version of the classic story, written by Vijayendra Prasad, it seems.
Nagarjuna maintauns friendly relations with the writer and family from Rajanna time, and he asked the writer to come up with a story for Naga Chaitanya it seems.
He came up with this love story, so that the image of the actor will also be a plus for the film.
Naga Chaitanya too is looking to build a reputation among youth and families with love stories for another few years, before trying action films again, it seems.
