Rana has become a replacement specialist. He has been replacing several stars off late. In Housefull 4, he replaced Nana Patekar and once again he has done the same.
Venkatesh and Ravi Teja were supposed to do a film together in the direction of Veeru Potla but that film never took off as Ravi Teja was busy with his films.
Now, Rana has replaced Ravi Teja and has come on board for this film. The film is still in the scripting stages and will only go on floors once Venkatesh finishes Venky Mama.
