Efforts on to make Chiranjeevi-Pawan film a reality

Visakhapatnam, Feb 23 (IANS) Producer and Member of Parliament T. Subbirami Reddy on Thursday confirmed that efforts are on to make a multi-starrer with megastar Chiranjeevi and his younger brother Pawan Kalyan.

He told the media here that a script is being made to bring the two brothers together on screen for the first time. He said work was on for a story with suitable roles for the leading actors.

The producer also confirmed that Ashwini Dutt will be the co-producer of the movie.

The Congress leader said talks were also being held with Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan. “Once we have the script, we will start shooting,” he said.

Subbirami Reddy had announced at an event of Chiranjeevi’s “Khaidi No. 150” last month that he would want everyone from the megastar’s family to act in the multi-starrer.

However, some circles in Telugu film industry had said that the film will not become a reality, given different political ideologies of the two brothers.

The two brothers are also said to have differences on many issues. Pawan was not happy with the manner in which Chiranjeevi merged his Praja Rajyam Party with Congress.

Pawan floated Jana Sena in 2014 and campaigned for BJP-TDP alliance while his elder brother led the Congress party’s poll campaign in Andhra Pradesh.

Pawan is gearing up for a more active role in politics and has announced that he will contest the 2019 elections.

However, after the success of Chiranjeevi’s comeback film “Khaidi No. 150”, Pawan had visited his house to congratulate him. They said that despite different political ideologies, they respect each other.
