The film is produced by Mythri Movie Makers and has music by Devi Sri Prasad
The latest addition to a long list of announcements commemorating actor Chiranjeevi's 66th birthday is here! The first poster of the star's 154th film is out. As per reports, the film, that was loosely referred to as #Chiru154 all along, is titled Waltair Veerayya. The film is directed by Power, Venky Mama filmmaker K S Ravindra aka Bobby. Waltair Veerayya is jointly produced by Naveen Yerneni, Y Ravi Shankar and GK Mohan under Mythri Movie Makers. The mass entertainer will have a set of energetic compositions by Devi Sri Prasad.
The film's sepia-tinted first poster features Chiranjeevi in massy avatar where he's standing on the edge of the boat, wrapping his head with a cloth and turning to his left, stylishly smoking a cigarette and is surrounded by a series of chains. Going by the poster, he appears to be a fisherman in the movie. Mythri Movie Makers, launching the first poster, tweeted, "Make way for OG Mass Monster, Box Office ka Gangster, one and only MEGASTAR. #Mega154 filming begins soon. #PoonakaaluLoading #HBDMegastarChiranjeevi." Chiranjeevi, after Khaidi No. 150, makes a return to the 'pakka' commercial territory with this Bobby directorial that's expected to go on floors soon.
Going by the title, it's quite obvious that the film is set amidst the backdrop of Visakhapatnam (which was called Waltair in the past). A few minutes before the title and the first look launch, the makers also added, "The MEGA WAVE is nearer to the coast." While referring to the film in the past, the producer Y Ravi Shankar had remarked, "This film will take viewers back to the 90s-era Chiranjeevi. It is a full-on masala entertainer and will be a feast for his fans. Chiranjeevi will be at his energetic best and many will be reminded of the energy he exuded in films like Gharana Mogudu."
Even in a promotional event earlier this year, "I am absolutely sure and have no doubts that audiences will be entertained completely with Bobby's film. I am happy to be working with a prestigious banner like Mythri Movie Makers." Chiranjeevi's other commitments include Acharya, Bholaa Shankar, Godfather and an untitled film with Maruthi.
