Actor Akkineni is busy in the process of drafting the finals scripts for both his upcoming films. Both these films are going to be sequels. Bangarraju is a sequel of Soggade Chinni Nayana and Manmadhudu 2 is a sequel to his film with the same title.
Manmadhudu 2 is going to be directed by Rahul Ravindran and when approached, he said, “Yes. It is true that I will be directing Nagarjuna sir. He was impressed with my work in Chi La Sow, which marks my first directorial. I really can’t reveal much about the projects, but I can say that yes, it will be going on floors soon.” Nowadays, he is busy shooting for his Bollywood film Brahmastra, where he will share the screen space with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia, Amitabh and others. On the other hand, he is also part of Marakkar, a Malayalam film which will also be released in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu. Marakkar will also have Mohanlal and Suniel Shetty.
And, yeah, he also signed for a Dhanush directorial, a Tamil flick which will have Aditi Rao Hydari and Anu Emanuel as the leading ladies. This shooting of this film has been kept on hold due to budget constraints is what the sources have said.
