EXCLUSIVE Tiger Nageswara Rao: Renu Desai onboard for Ravi Teja’s film; Kickstarts shoot today
Tiger Nageswara Rao: Actress Renu Desai has joined the sets in the new schedule of Ravi Teja starrer.
Ravi Teja’s maiden Pan-India film Tiger Nageswara Rao, being helmed by Vamsee is the talk of the town since its inception. The makers recently roped in the National Award-winning actor, Anupam Kher for a crucial role in the film. Now, Pinkvilla has exclusively learned that Badri actress Renu Desai is onboard for the Ravi Teja starrer.
“After Anupam Kher sir, Renu Desai has joined the sets in the new schedule of the film today and is playing a very crucial and powerful role of a writer and a social worker,” reveals a source. Tiger Nageswara Rao is a biopic on the notorious thief and is set in the 70s in the village named Stuartpuram. Nupur Sanon and Gayathri Bharadwaj are roped in to play the leading ladies opposite Ravi Teja in the movie.
Recently, director Vamsee in an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, revealed he is trying to change Ravi Teja’s body language completely. "We all know Ravi Teja's energy and the impact it has but in Tiger Nageswara Rao, I'm not trying to show anything of Ravi Teja. When you see the film, you will feel it is Tiger Nageswara Rao and not Ravi Teja. Talking about the action, of course, there are high scale fight sequences," said director Vamsee who kickstarts the new schedule of the film from today.
For the unversed, Renu Desai is Pawan Kalyan’s ex-wife. The couple tied the knot in 2009 and parted ways in 2012. They are parents of two children Akira Nandan and Aadhya.
