Popular music director S S Thaman is composing music for Pawan Kalyan’s yet-to-be-titled movie with Jilla fame R T Neason. Thaman, who is composing for Pawan for the first time, was elated with the offer and shared the news on Twitter.
“Hello guys. Very very happy to announce my next film with our power star Pawan Kalyan gaaru directed by dear R T Neason, produced by Rathnam sir,” tweeted Thaman. Thaman has earlier worked with many big-ticket stars including Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu.
Under Neason’s direction, the film is a remake of Tamil hit Vedalam and the film’s shooting is scheduled to start from January next year. The Tamil director also shot to fame with Ilaythalapathy Vijay’s Jilla. He has directed four films and this will be his debut in Tollywood.
Pawan is already busy with his shoot in the upcoming Telugu actioner Katamarayudu, which is the official remake of Ajith-starrer Veeram. The power star has taken a break from his political commitments and is already on full throttle with two projects underway and another project with Trivikram Srinivas on the cards. With these films in hand, Pawan has batted away all rumours of him leaving Tollywood for politics. Last month, amid growing speculation that the Tollywood actor would drift away from film industry into politics, Pawan Kalyan had cleared the air stating that he will continue his acting career. “Acting is my livelihood. I will not stop. Yet, I will continue my political journey,” the Tollywood actor had said.
