Ace filmmaker VV Vinayak has refuted the rumours that he would be directing Megastar Chiranjeevi's 150th film. The director says that he has not yet confirmed a project with the actor. He has already narrated the story to the Tollywood actor, but he is still waiting for his nod. Meanwhile, he reveals that Ram Charan Teja has taken special interest in his father's prestigious project.
It was rumoured that VV Vinayak would direct Chiru in his 150th film. In a statement to the media, the director said, "Nothing has been finalised yet. I have a few stories in mind, but I'm waiting to hear from him (Chiranjeevi). None of us know what is going to be his next film. I think it will make sense when he announces it."
Chiranjeevi will turn 59 on August 22 and he is expected to announce his 150th film, which will be a landmark moment for him as well as his fans. Recently, Ram Charan came forward with an offer to pay Rs 1 crore for a suitable script for his father's next project. He is also expected to produce the film. The director added, "Ram has taken special interest in his father's film. He wants it to be a special film that will be remembered for a long time."
Vinayak is currently awaiting the release of his next Telugu film Alludu Seenu featuring newcomer Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas and Samantha. Produced by Bellamkonda Suresh, the film is slated to release on July 25. He said, "Had it not been for Srinivas's father Suresh, I would've never become a filmmaker. He produced my first film and I always was indebted to him. When he asked me if I could launch his son, I thought it was my dharma."
