If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, popular composer duo brothers Ajay-Atul have been brought on board for megastar Chiranjeevi’s next Telugu project which is currently dubbed Chiru 152.

Sources close to the production have confirmed that Ajay-Atul have already been signed on. However, the makers are yet to make an official announcement.

This will be the second outing for Ajay-Atul who had previously composed music for Telugu film Shock (2006), which starred Ravi Teja in the lead.

The yet-untitled project will be jointly produced by Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainments. This project will mark the maiden collaboration of Chiranjeevi and Koratala Siva.

Recently, reports emerged that actor Trisha Krishnan has been signed as the leading lady. She would be reuniting with Chiranjeevi after a decade since they both last worked together in AR Murugadoss’s Stalin (2006).

The film, which is expected to go on the floors next month, will have cinematography by Tirru while Sreekar Prasad will take care of editing. Suresh Selvarajan will handle the production design.  

Apparently, some reports claim that the film will feature Chiranjeevi in dual roles. According to a report by CinemaExpress.com, the film, set against the backdrop of Srikakulm, is about a middle-aged Naxalite-turned-social reformer who launches a fight against the Endowments Department over misappropriation and embezzlement of temple funds and donations. 

The story is said to be inspired from real-life events. Chiranjeevi will be seen playing two distinct looks as Govind and Acharya. Siva and his team are currently fixing the looks for Chiranjeevi’s character.

Pre-production has been underway for over a month. The team recently erected two sets replicating a middle-class colony in Kokpet. Another set replicating Varahi Narasimha Swamy temple soon.
