How Adhishankara stops the Peetham from falling into the wrong hands will form the rest of the story.

Chiranjeevi has impressed the viewers as Shiva in the film Sri Manjunatha. Hence, he thought Chiru would be apt to lend his voice for the introduction scene in the movie Sri Jagadguru Adi Shankara.
The director feels that his voice will set the perfect tone for the film. However, the shooting of the film Sri Jagadguru Adi Shankara is currently going on in Hyderabad and critically acclaimed director K Raghavendra Rao, who is known for his devotional films like Annamayya, Sri Ramadasu, Pandurangadu and Shirdi Sai, is helming Nagarjuna's special scenes.

Nagarjuna recently played Sai Baba in the movie Shirdi Sai, which was directed by K Raghavendra Rao. He has won lot of accolades for his performance.
Now, Nagarjuna is playing another such role of Chandaludu in Sri Jagadguru Aadi Sankara. His first look shows that the King is once again going to rock the viewers. Music director Nag Srivatsav is scoring music for the movie. The makers of the film are planning to launch the audio of the film on Shivaratri.

Overall, Sri Jagadguru Adi Shankara is a really good attempt in Tollywood, which produces maximum number of mass masala movies. It is a good family entertainer for this festive season.
