Jr NTR’s RRR co-star Ramcharan is likely to star in the first episode and the teaser of the same is to be released this weekend. Ramcharan has reportedly won over Rs 25 lakhs in the episode, which will be donated to charity.
Ace cinematographer Senthil Kumar of Baahubali fame has shot the promos. Due to Jr NTR’s unavailability for a long time, there has been a delay with the dubbing of the promo even though it was shot long ago. This is believed to be one of the reasons behind the show’s delay.
The first episode of the show was expected to be out by August 15. The new season of Evaru Meelo Koteeswarulu, the Telugu version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? was launched in March this year but got postponed due to numerous reasons.
