Actor Ravi Teja’s new Telugu film with director Gopichand Malineni has been titled Krack. The project which also co-stars Shruti Haasan was officially launched in a ceremony on Thursday, 14 November, in Hyderabad.
Producer Allu Aravind clapped the first shot while writer Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao switched on the camera. The script was handed over by director Surender Reddy and producer Dil Raju. The first shot was directed by veteran filmmaker K Raghavendra Rao.
Krack marks the third reunion of Ravi Teja and Malineni after Don Seenu (2010) and Balupu (2013). The project also marks the second collaboration of Ravi Teja and Shruti Haasan after Balupu.
Tipped to be an action-thriller, the film will see Ravi Teja play a cop. Recently, reports emerged that the film is a remake of Tamil film Theri (2016), which featured Vijay as a cop. However, director Malineni clarified via a tweet that the film is not a remake.
