There are many in the industry who aspired to become directors but turned out to be top stars. Those who top the list include Mass Raja Raviteja, Natural Star Nani and young hero Raj Tarun. Generally many do not take a risk and experiment once they establish themselves as a director. However, a young director is keen to test his luck as a hero on screen.
He is none other than Anil Ravipudi who made a lasting impression on Telugu movie lovers with Kalyan Ram's Pataas and Mass Raja Raviteja's Raja The Great. Currently, he is busy with his crazy multi starrer F2 (Fun & Frustration) with Victory Venkatesh and Mega Prince Varun Tej. Anil according to sources has been bitten by an acting bug. He expressed his desire to his close aides. Anil already appeared in a small scene in Raviteja's Raja The Great. Inside talk is he also did a cameo in Venkatesh, Varun Tej's multi starrer F2. Sources say Anil did these cameos out of interest and passion for acting.
Rumours are spreading that star producer Dil Raju is ready to produce a film with Anil Ravipudi in lead.
