The real-life Mama-Alludu combination Naga Chaitanya and Venkatesh were planning to team up for a project for a long time. Finally, the director KS Ravindra came up with a script and the project got confirmed.
Titled as Venky Mama, the movie is a joint production of People's Media Factory, Kona Venkat Film Corporation and Suresh Productions. The interesting buzz is that Huma Qureshi, the Bollywood actress was approached to play the romantic interest of Venkatesh in the movie. She was approached with the proposal of this project right after the release of her South debut Kaala. She initially expressed her interest to be a part of the project and the makers locked Rakul Preet to romance Chay in the movie.
Now, cut to the present, it is heard that Huma Qureshi is said to be showing no interest in the project anymore and has made it clear to the film unit. As the makers are going to shoot the movie in sometime soon, this development came as a big shock.
Immediately, the makers looked for the best possible alternatives and approached Shriya Saran for pairing alongside Venkatesh in the movie. Shriya is said to have accepted to come on board for the project instantly and the makers will be making an official announcement regarding the same by the end of this month.
