‘Acharya’, the first collaboration between Megastar Chiranjeevi and director Koratala Siva, has been attracting the headlines for all the wrong reasons. It got delayed for umpteen reasons. Then there was this discussion about Mahesh Babu stepping in a guest role, which was vehemently denied by Chiranjeevi. It was also rumored that Ram Charan is not investing a single penny into this project but taking credit as the co-producer. Then came the news of Trisha exiting from the film. Citing creative differences, she had backed out of it.

The other day, various media outlets published the report that Kajal Aggarwal is also backing out of ‘Acharya’ as she has to give bulk dates to a Tamil film. 

However, her manager told Telugucinema.com that there’s no truth in these reports. “I spoke to Kajal Aggarwal to recheck about the status. There’s no truth in it. She’s very much part of ‘Acharya’. The news reports are baseless,” he clarified.

This would be Kajal’s second pairing with Megastar Chiranjeevi after ‘Khaidi No 150’. 

‘Acharya’ has wrapped up 40 percent of its shooting so far. Koratala Siva is projecting the megastar in a completely different avatar. Ram Charan will play a lengthy guest role. Being produced by Niranjan Reddy and Ram Charan, ‘Acharya’ is expected to hit the screens for Sankranthi 2021 as Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ is likely to be postponed from Sankranthi to summer 2021.
