Filmmaker Koratala Siva on Monday announced that he will be directing Tollywood star Jr NTR in his next, which has been tentatively titled NTR 30. “Very happy to collaborate with @tarak9999 garu once again. Last time repairs were local…but for a change we will cross boundaries this time,” tweeted the director.
Siva was referring to his previous film, Janatha Garage. The 2016 film saw Tarak sharing the screen space with Malayalam superstar Mohanlal. The film went on to become one of the highest-grossing films of that year.
The industry buzz is that Tarak was supposed to collaborate with Trivikram Srinivas for his 30th film in his career. However, the project did not take off owing to unknown reasons.
NTR30 will be produced by Yuva Sudha Arts and the regular shooting of the film is likely to begin in June.
Very happy to collaborate with @tarak9999 garu once again.
