Director Chandoo Mondeti, acclaimed for his success with ‘Karthikeya 2’, is gearing up for an innovative project with Kollywood superstar Suriya in the lead role. The film aims to draw from the wisdom of the Vedas to create awareness about spiritual matters among younger audiences. This upcoming socio-fantasy venture has already entered pre-production, featuring Naga Chaitanya in a narrative centered around fishermen.
Chandoo Mondeti recently shared his experiences, highlighting his interactions with luminaries like Suriya, Hrithik Roshan, and Kartik Aaryan. He expressed his admiration for Suriya, commending the star’s support and camaraderie. The director was enthralled when Suriya displayed intricate knowledge of ‘Karthikeya 2’, remembering specific shots vividly. Their interactions have proven enriching for Chandoo, inspiring him further.
Chandoo’s upcoming endeavor with Suriya will explore the four Vedas—Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda, and Atharvaveda—through a socio-fantasy lens. Despite Suriya’s busy schedule for the next couple of years, he’s shown unwavering interest in the project’s progress, indicating a strong commitment.
Interestingly, Chandoo was initially in contact with Bollywood stalwarts like Hrithik Roshan and Kartik Aaryan for a film centered around fishermen. Eventually, he found the perfect fit in Naga Chaitanya, leading to a multilingual production. As more details unfold, the audience eagerly anticipates this fusion of spirituality and fantasy on the silver screen.
