Actor Ram Charan, who will be next seen in SS Rajamouli's RRR (2021), is most likely to play a cameo in his uncle Pawan Kalyan’s upcoming, yet-to-be-titled Telugu period drama, which will be directed by Krish Jagarlamudi. The period drama is likely to be set in the Mughal era.

"Krish wants to make it a memorable film of his career and is keen to approach Charan for a guest appearance. This character plays an important role in taking forward Pawan Kalyan's journey in the narrative. If everything goes as planned, the director may meet Charan soon after the actor wraps up shooting for RRR,” a source was quoted in a report by Cinema Express.

The project, to be produced by AR Rathnam, will mark the maiden collaboration of Krish and Kalyan, who has returned to acting after a hiatus of two years. Krish has completed the script and is currently busy finalising the rest of the cast and crew. The film will feature actors from multiple industries, including the Hindi film industry.  

According to reports, a leading Hindi film actor is being considered for the antagonist’s role. The film will feature two leading ladies.

Meanwhile, Kalyan has recently completed shooting for Vakeel Saab (2020), the Telugu remake of the Hindi Pink (2016), starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu. The remake has been directed Venu Sriram. The film is jointly produced by Boney Kapoor and Dil Raju, and also stars Nivetha Thomas and Anjali in crucial roles.

The Tamil version of Pink, which released last year, starred Ajith in the role of a lawyer with bipolar issues. Directed by H Vinoth, Nerkonda Paarvai (2019) went on to strike gold at the box-office, with worldwide earnings of over Rs150 crore.
