The wallpapers of Naga Chaitanya-Tamannaah's new untitled film look uber-cool evoking curiosity about the Telugu film.
Chaitanya is basking in the success of Gautham Menon's Ye Maaya Chesave, and Tamannaah's quite a sensation in Tamil films as all her new films have done very well. So this pairing would definitely attract attention.
This untitled film is produced by Geetha Arts (presented by Allu Arvind, produced by Bunny Vasu) and directed by Sukumar (of Arya and Arya 2 fame). The shoot of the film has just begun in Hyderabad.
When quizzed about the theme of the film, director Sukumar said, "It's a story of college students and their relationship. The first half has a college backdrop while the second half has a family setting. Incidents from life provide the basic inspiration."
Sukumar has chosen Chaitanya and Tamannah, who are both being paired for the first time. "I thought both are a good combo since they have fresh looks and moreover it's a story about students."
For Chaitanya, the script was the deciding factor in signing the film.
"Even before I did Ye Maaya Chesave, Allu Arvind and Sukumar approached me for the film. This film deals with the problems college students face particularly with education. It's inspired by what students go through and is also a family entertainer without being preachy. A love story is also woven into it. One part deals with college life, while the other is to do with software."
He adds, "the character is very different here and so is the look. I've never worn glasses before."
For Tamannaah, "The love story, interesting screenplay with all the commercial elements in place, Sukumar's detailing, a young subject which the youth of today can relate to, Allu Arvind's production, Chaitanya's presence, Sukumar's direction and Devisriprasad's music" were the appealing points to sign the film.
"It's a full-fledged character and very challenging. I play a village girl but a transformation occurs..." she adds. "The wallpapers look interesting because of the concept -- they are symbolic of the subject of the film. It was Sukumar's idea and the styling was done by Ashwin (who had styled Kajal Agarwal in Arya 2 and Darling and for Allu Arjun in Vedam)."
Both the stars are happy to work with Sukumar. "It's good to work with Sukumar for he is known for his dedication," says Chaitanya.
"I was keen to work with Sukumar as he gives full scope to perform. Sukumar made Arya which was unforgettable. So I felt he was the right director to work with," chips in Tamannaah.
Devisriprasad is on board with Sukumar for the third time as music director."He's a friend and I understand him," says Sukumar about Devisri.
This movie is likely to release before the year end.
