The actor began shooting for the film recently
Saurav Lokesh, popularly known as Bhajarangi Loki post his role in the Harsha-Shivarajkumar film, is all set to make his Tollywood debut. The 20-film-old actor, who has also been part of television, is said to be playing a prominent role in Megastar Chiranjeevi's 152 Telugu film, Acharya, directed by Kortala Shiva.
He has even completed a few days of shooting for the film stealthily. A source tells us that Loki was awestruck to share screen space with a star like Ram Charan for his first shot, and adds, "Kortala Shiva was on the hunt to cast unique actors for Acharya and he finalised Loki based on his previous work in Kannada."
Loki will be seen alongside Kishore and Sonu Sood among others in the film.
Acharya is produced by Ram Charan along with Niranjan Reddy under their banners Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainments. Starring Kajal Aggarwal as the female lead, the film is slated for release in the second quarter of 2021.
Meanwhile, Bhajarangi Loki is said to have bagged his second project in Telugu already, but the details are being kept under the wraps. On the Kannada front, Loki has completed shooting for Shivarajkumar's Bhajarangi 2 and Takkar.
