Chiranjeevi Sarja to play the lead in TS Nagabharana's Jugari Cross adaptation
While many filmmakers, including Kodlu Ramakrishna, have attempted turning Jugari Cross into a film, only director TS Nagabharana’s attempt seems to be taking off
Director TS Nagabharana, who has acquired the rights of Jugari Cross to adapt it to the big screen, has now found a face for this suspense thriller. The film, produced by Kaddipudi Chandru, is based on the famous novel written by Poornachandra Tejaswi. According to our source, Chiranjeevi Sarja has been roped in to play the lead. An official announcement will soon be made on this front, probably around February, when the makers plan to launch the film.
While many filmmakers, including Kodlu Ramakrishna, have attempted turning Jugari Cross into a film, only director TS Nagabharana’s attempt seems to have taken off, with the National and State award-winning filmmaker managing to acquire the book rights from Tejaswi’s wife, Rajeshwari.
With Chiranjeevi, who is currently shooting for Vijay Kiran’s Singha, on board, Jugari Cross will likely feature senior artistes Rangayana Raghu, Tara, and Sadhu Kokila in the cast. However, the cast will be confirmed soon.
