Thanks to the never-ending saga that is S S Rajamouli’s RRR, Ramcharan Teja has reluctantly backed out of his commitment to c-star with his father the legendary Chiranjeevi in Koratala Siva’s Acharya.
Koratala had specially written the role for Ramcharan.
“When father Chiranjeevi and son Ramcharan would have come together on screen the audience would have brought the house down. However, that was not to be. Ramcharan is solely committed to RRR. Until that project is completed he won’t work in any other film,” says a source very close to the development.
Apparently, Rajamouli drove down to meet Chiranjeevi at his residence to apologize.
In the meanwhile, Chiranjeevi has requested Mahesh Babu to step into his son’s role. And Mahesh Babu who is very close to Chiranjeevi and cannot say no to any request from him has agreed to step into Ramcharan’s role in Acharya.
This is the first time Mahesh Babu will be doing a guest appearance in his entire career.
