The much-awaited debut of Nagarjuna's first son, Naga Chaitanya, happened not on the glitzy sets of a film city but at a library in the Old City of Hyderabad. After all the hype and speculation that surrounded the secrecy of Naga Chaitanya's maiden foray before the camera, the movie began with Chaitanya's first shot in an old library. The shoot is set to continue for four more days in Hyderabad then shift to a college in Agra for a more extended schedule.
Directed by debutant Vasu Varma and produced by Dil Raju, the movie features Sandeep Chowta and cinematography by Sameer Reddy. The hunt for a suitable heroine is on with sources saying that the most likely choice would be a debutante.
Chaitanya's introduction to the general public is planned to coincide with the audio release of his father Nagarjuna's King, which has been scheduled for November 23rd, Chaitanya's birthday.
