Sriimurali fans have had to endure a long wait for an update concerning 'Bagheera', but they will finally treated to the film's maiden teaser on December 17th. The day happens to be the actor's 41st birthday as well, so to make things extra special for the same fans, another exciting update is in the offing.

According to the latest developments, Sriimurali is set to work with a debutant filmmaker for his 23rd outing as an actor. The project will be helmed by Halesh Kogudi and the title announcement, along with the release of a theme poster, will be made on Sunday, December 17th. 

Halesh Kogudi, as per reports, is an engineer-turned-filmmaker who has previously directed a couple of short films and music videos.

Speaking to the same media outlet, Sriimurali shared that he really liked the 'concept' of Halesh Kogudi's film and that the collaboration would be a content-oriented action film, much like 'Bagheera'.
