Mega hero Sai Dharam Tej is finally relieved with the success of his recent offering Chitralahari. The movie ended up collecting Rs 14 crores in its final run which is decent. Sai Dharam Tej is currently in talks with Maruthi for a family entertainer which is tentatively titled Prathi Roju Pandage. The regular shoot of the film starts this month and the pre-production work of the film is currently in final stages. Maruthi is finalizing the female leads and other actors.
Though Malvika Sharma was finalized, the look test did not fetch the desired results. Hence, the makers decided to replace her. Rukshar Dhillon who played the female lead in Krishnarjuna Yuddham and ABCD has been roped in as the leading lady. Maruthi felt that she would fit in the bill as the actress and roped her. Rao Ramesh has been finalized for a crucial role and SS Thaman composes the music. Bankrolled by GA2 Pictures and UV Creations, Prathi Roju Pandage releases for Sankranthi 2020.
