Director Srikanth Addala is gearing up to start his next directorial venture after his much-hyped Sankranthi release Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC) starring Mahesh Babu and Venkatesh in the lead roles. Now, everyone is quite eager to know whom he will rope in for lead roles in his next movie. The buzz in the industry is that the Kotha Bangaru Lokam helmer is likely to cast Nagababu's son Varun Tej.
It was rumoured earlier that Srikanth Addala would team up with Junior NTR after the release of Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. But now, the rumour mills in T-Town are busy spreading the news that the director would want to cast a newcomer for his forthcoming film. He will soon make an official announcement about it. Apparently, the new face would be Chiranjeevi's brother Nagababu's son Varun.
Nagababu wants to launch his son Varun Tej in film industry and he thinks that Srikanth Addala is suitable director for him. So he has told his opinion to the director, who has given oral consent to him. Srikanth has even reportedly narrated a story to Nagababu, who is said to have given his nod for it.
However, Varun Tej is currently undergoing training in acting. Once he finishes it, the budding star would reportedly sign this project and start shooting for the movie. Other cast and crew details are yet to be finalised. The director is expected to make an announcement to regard this project soon.
