Kona Venkat is currently keeping himself away from the media after scoring a series of debacles at the box office, and post his murkier spat with director Srinu Vaitla. But, that did not keep him off work.
The writer, who also maintains a good relation with a few Bollywood big names, is reportedly teaming up with the gorgeous diva Sridevi for her next film. It is by now a known thing that Sridevi will be next seen in a women centric film, titled Mom.
Apparently, a little birdie from the B town tells that it is none other than Kona Venkat, who penned the story of the film. If the sources are to be believed, Kona Venkat approached Boney Kapoor and Sridevi with the script a few months back and they are said to be mightily impressed with the plot.
Hence, the project is now ready to go on floors. Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will share the screen space with Sridevi and the movie will be produced by Boney Kapoor.
Nawazuddin's representative confirmed the news to IANS, "Yes, it's true Nawazuddin will be sharing the screen space with Sridevi. The film is titled Mom. It's a very unusual script, but right now we can't disclose much about his character in the film,". We are yet to get an official confirmation from the writer about his association with the project though.
