In other news, a new Telugu project featuring Venkatesh was also announced on Wednesday. The film is called Saindhav and it will mark his first collaboration with director Sailesh Kolanu. Based on the poster, it appears to be a big-budget action film.
Currently, Venkatesh is waiting for the release of an Indian adaptation of Ray Donovan in which he will be working with his nephew Rana Daggubati for the first time. This show also marks Venkatesh's debut on the OTT platform.
When the announcement was made, Rana said in a statement: "It is completely different from what both of us have done in our careers so far. I am extremely happy to work with a crew and a platform that knows this format the best. It will be new, challenging and fun. We are looking forward to filming soon." Venkatesh, too, expressed his excitement and added, "I cannot wait to work with Rana. I am sure we will have a blast on sets. I am a huge fan of Ray Donovan and the team is pulling out all the stops to ensure we do justice to it."
