Chaitanya retweeted the post.
While Ramya Krishna, who was seen in SCN, is part of Bangaraju as well. The makers have roped in the most sought-after heroine Krithi Shetty to play Naga Chaitanya’s love interest.
Zee Studios will be co-producing the project with Annapurna Studios Pvt Ltd. Nagarjuna is the producer. While actress Ramya Krishna will star in the sequel as well, the cast welcomed actress Krithi Shetty as the female lead alongside Chaitanya.
Bangaraju is billed to be a wholesome entertainer laced with a good dose of romance, emotions and other commercial ingredients. Expectations are quite high on the project, since it is the sequel for the blockbuster and Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya are working together for the second time.
The last time the father-son duo came together, it was on the 2014 Telugu film Manam
