Ramya Krishna, who is basking in the glory of Baahubali and Soggade ChinniNayana's success, has teamed up with her filmmaker husband Krishna Vamsi for the film, Rudraksha. The film features Samantha in the leading role.
"Ramya and her husband have joined hands after 15 years. She plays one of the leads in the film," a source from the film's unit revealed. Apparently, the film is rumored to be on the lines of 1995's Ammoru and thereis another version of speculation that, it could be like Arundathi.
However, all these can be considered as baseless, as nothing much about the film's storyline is revealed yet. But, the unit says that it is a horror fantasy. To be bankrolled by Dil Raju, Rudraksha is tipped to be the most expensive film in Krishna Vamsi's career.
"It's going to be made on a lavish budget. The film features nearly an hour of visual effects (VFX) and the makers are currently in talks with several VFX studios," the source said.
The project is most likely to go on the floors in May or June and it was originally written to feature Anushka Shetty in the lead. "As of now, Samantha and Ramya are on board. The makers did approach Anushka for one of the main leads; however things didn't fall in place. The film also features four male newcomers," the source further added.
