IANS' source also set the record straight for the other cast members of the film. "Contrary to rumours, Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi is not part of the project. He wasn't even approached in the first place. Kannada actor Sudeep is being considered but he is yet to officially sign on the dotted line." Meanwhile, AR Rahman, who is composing music for Rajinikanth's 2.0 and Mohanlal's Mahabharata (adaptation of Randamoozham), is being considered for the project too. "We have a few more options and we are still figuring out things," the source told IANS.
The makers have reportedly planned to release the film's title logo and motion poster on Chiranjeevi's birthday on August 22. This will be Chiranjeevi's 151st film and will be made on a budget of over Rs 150 crore. The film will be made in Telugu, Hindi and Kannada. Chiranjeevi was last seen in Khaidi No 150, which marked the superstar's returned to silver screen after a gap of 10 years.
