Venkatesh and Meenakshi Chaudhary

Meenakshi Chaudhary, who was last seen in Mahesh Babu’s Guntur Kaaram (2024), has zeroed in on her next Telugu project.

As per the industry grapevine, Meenakshi Chaudhary has been roped in for Venkatesh’s next film. The project will mark his third collaboration with director Anil Ravipudi after F2 (2019) and F3 (2022).

While some reports suggest that the movie is the next instalment in the F2 franchise, some have said it’s an entirely different venture and will be an action-drama.

The untitled film will go on the floors in July and will be wrapped up in about four months.

If everything goes as planned, it could also hit the screens for Sankranthi in 2025.

The project will feature Venkatesh as an ex-cop, while Meenakshi Chaudhary’s character has been kept under wraps for now.

The yet-untitled flick will have music by Bheems and produced by Dil Raju.

In Tamil, Menakshi is paired opposite Thalapathy Vijay in GOAT, directed by Venkat Prabhu.

Meanwhile, Anil Ravipudi is currently busy working on the final draft of the script as well as finalising the rest of the cast and crew.

Last seen on screen in Saindhav, which was a box-office disaster, Venkatesh has pinned high hopes on this project.

The senior actor was recently spotted in Mumbai and he’s said to begin shooting for the next season of Netflix’s series Rana Naidu.

The show saw Venkatesh teaming up with his nephew Rana Daggubati for the first time.

In Rana Naidu, Rana plays a character who cleans up the mess of his high-profile clients for a living. Venkatesh played Rana’s father in the show.
