Despite the failure of “Andala Rakshasi”, the film introduced Tollywood a promising director – Hanu Raghavpudi and talented actors – Lavanya Tripathi, Rahul Ravindran and Naveen Chandra. The film served as a launchpad for them and brought them further offers.
Naveen Chandra however failed to establish himself yet in Tollywood. The successive flops apparently persuaded him to accept supporting as well as villain roles.
The latest we hear is that Naveen Chandra has signed Bellamkonda Srinivas’ new film to play the role of main villain. His look will be menacing. He had earlier played negative character in Nani’s “Nenu Local”, but the Bellamkonda-starrer will showcase him as a ruthless villain.
To be directed by newcomer, Srinivas, the Bellamkonda-starrer features Kajal Aggarwal as leading lady. Catherine Tresa plays second female lead role.
On a related note, Naveen Chandra is also playing one of Ram Charan’s brothers in his new film being directed by Boyapati.
