Jr NTR Out, Nithiin In

Jr. NTR finally took his stand and opted out of “Srinivasa Kalyanam”, which is directed by Satish Vegesna and produced by Dil Raju. Producer Dil Raju met Jr NTR recently to know his availability for this project and it is heard that Jr.NTR had not showed much interest in the storyline and asked the producer to look out for other options.

Satish Vegesna became hot property after the huge hit of Shatamanam Bhavathi, which was released in this year Sankranthi Season. As per the earlier contract, Satish Vegesna is committed to do his next film also under Dil Raju’s banner. The director got ready with script and even registered the title as “Srinivasa Kalyanam” with a tagline 'Sri Weds Nivas'. However, finding the hero for this story had become daunting task for both the director and producer.

After many rejections by other heroes, Dil Raju was keen on making the film with NTR but NTR was unsure about the film and walked out. Immediately Dil Raju along with director Satish met Nithiin and narrated the story. Since Nithiin was also looking to act in family entertainer after the flop of his last movie "LIE", he agreed to get onboard. This will be second film for Nithiin in Dil Raju’s banner after their 2003 blockbuster film “Dil”. The shooting of this movie will be started from January 2018 and the film is slated for Sankranthi 2019 release.
