Vikram Kumar, Naga Chaitanya reunite for Thank You

The director has clarified to Cinema Express that Samantha Akkineni is not part of the film

Published: 01st July 2020

Actor Naga Chaitanya and producer Dil Raju have joined hands with director Vikram K Kumar for a family entertainer, tentatively titled Thank You. Chay and Vikram have earlier worked together in the Akkineni multi-starrer Manam, while Dil Raju had launched the 33-year-old actor in Josh.

Speaking to Cinema Express, Vikram Kumar says, "Yes, I am collaborating with Naga Chaitanya and Dil Raju for my next. We have always wanted to work together and I am delighted to team up with them for a family entertainer with the working title Thank You. The story revolves around the two lead characters and we will start shooting once normalcy returns (in Hyderabad)."

Speculations were rife that actor Samantha Akkineni had been brought on board to play the female lead opposite Chaitanya. Quashing these rumours, Vikram says, "Sam is not part of the film. Some other actor will play the lead heroine. However, we haven't approached anyone so far and are yet to finalise the rest of the cast."

Vikram last directed Gang Leader, starring Nani. Chaitanya will next be seen in director Sekhar Kammula's romantic entertainer, Love Story. Also starring Sai Pallavi, the film is in the last leg of production.
