Veteran actor Krishnam Raju, known for films such as "Bullet" and "Prema Tarangalu", hopes to revive his long-delayed Telugu project "Okka Adugu" this year with his nephew Prabhas Varma, a popular actor in the industry.
Krishnam Raju told IANS, "Prabhas and I will come together for
this film. The script is finalised and I have also found a
producer. We plan to take the film on floors this year and I might
direct it as well if I don't find someone who shares my
sensibilities about the film."
Prabhas is currently shooting for SS Rajamouli's Telugu magnum opus Baahubali with Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty. Krishnam Raju added, "I'm aware that Prabhas is extremely busy with 'Baahubali'. But I'm sure he will take out time to work with me on this project. He's always been asking about working together and here's an opportunity finally."
Okka Adugu is all about corruption and will be produced by Gopi
Krishna Pictures. The title of the movie is a popular dialogue from
Prabhas-starrer Telugu action-drama Chatrapathi, but Raju said the
title is not inspired by it. Krishnam Raju said, "The title in my
film refers to the step you take against corruption. It literally
translates to 'one step'. I think that's that step that makes
anyone a leader. It's not inspired by any of Prabhas's film
