Upcoming work

In 2023, Chiranjeevi tasted both success and failure with Waltair Veerayya and Bholaa Shankar. The former film also starred Ravi Teja and was a success at the box office; the latter which also starred Keerthy Suresh received lukewarm response. He is now shooting for the socio-fantasy film Vishwambhara, directed by Mallidi Vassishta. The film marks the comeback of Trisha to Telugu cinema after years.

Filming is currently in progress and expectations are high as Vassishta’s previous film Bimbisara was a massive hit. Numerous sets were extensively created at Annapurna Studios for the film’s shoot. Apart from Hyderabad, the film has so far been shot at Maredumalli, Nalgonda and Lingampally.

Initially there were rumours that the film is a sequel to Chiranjeevi’s hit film Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari, but Vyjayanti Movies clarified on X that only they own the 1990 film’s rights. Vishwambhara is slated to release on January 10, 2025.
