Director Sampath Nandi, who last helmed Gopichand’s sports drama Seetimaarr, was in the news recently when reports emerged that he would direct Nagarjuna next. However, the rumours have been proved false. Commemorating his birthday today, the filmmaker announced that his next project would feature Sai Dharam Tej in the lead.

Sai Dharam Tej, who was back in action recently after recovering his road accident, is currently shooting for DVV Danayya’s production and has also committed to Samuthirakani’s Vinodaya Sitham Telugu remake. Reportedly, the actor liked Sampath Nandi’s script and his characterisation instantly and gave a nod to the project.

Sampath Nandi apparently took a lot of time to give finishing touches to the script and looks like his hard work has paid off. Noted banner Sithara Entertainments, that produced films like Bheemla Nayak and DJ Tillu this year, is backing the project. Suryadevara Naga Vamsi is the producer. This untitled film will be the first project for both Sai Dharam Tej and Sampath Nandi under the production house.

The regular shoot of the film will commence soon. The details about the project’s other cast, crew will be announced shortly. Besides this film, Sampath Nandi is also producing a film headlined by Jagapathi Babu, titled Simbaa, for which he’s written the story as well. Simbaa is reportedly a plea to preserve the environment and the film’s first look was launched recently.
