Tharun Bhascker's next is here

Though he's directed only two feature films to date, Pelli Choopulu and Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi, Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam is one of the most celebrated filmmakers in Telugu cinema that many audiences look out for. While he made his digital debut with a short for Netflix's anthology Pitta Kathalu, he's finally back to directing feature films after a sabbatical. His next is Keedaa Cola, a crime comedy. It's coming four uears after he helmed Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi.

Keedaa Cola will be the first feature length production of VG Sainma. What's the back story behind the title though? What connects Keedaa and Cola? The poster released by the team throws some hints, as one could notice the cap of a soft drink bottle with a title written on it. One can't miss the traces of blood and the creature in the poster too. “Experience crime comedy like never before…” says the team.

Produced by Bharath Kumar, Sripad Nandiraj, Upendra Varma, Srinivas Kaushik, Saikrishna Gadwal and Vijay Kumar, Keedaa Cola will release in 2023. Team Quick Fox is involved with the writing too. The cast and the crew of the film will be announced soon. Tharun Bhascker, also the story writer, has always surprised audiences with his casting and we're confident that Keedaa Cola's lineup would be no different.

Confirming the same, Tharun shared, "After successfully following my heart and acting in films that boiled down to small cameos, trying my stint at hosting my own show that got the lowest trps and after redrafting my scripts a zillion times, I'm ready to hit you all with a crime comedy." After Keedaa Cola, Tharun will next direct Naga Chaitanya for an investigative cop drama whose script he's been working on for long.
