Director Teja’s last outing at the theatres was Sita, a heroine-centric film. It had Kajal Aggarwal playing the lead role. Though the actor was lauded for her performance in the film, it did not fare well at the box office. Sita was a romantic entertainer that had Bellamkonda Sreenivas in the lead role with Sonu Sood in a crucial role. Anoop Rubens composed the tunes for this flick with Sirsha Ray in charge of the cinematography and Venkateswara Rao Kotagiri as editor.
Putting this box office dud behind him, Teja is all set to move forward with his next. The groundwork for this venture is on and we can expect an official announcement soon. Meanwhile, there is a buzz that Kajal may be roped in for this project too as she shares a good rapport with the director.
Prior to the release of Sita, Teja has directed Nene Raju Nene Mantri, which had Rana Daggubati in the lead role. Interestingly, this film also had Kajal Agarwal playing the female lead along with Catherine Tresa.
Kajal is currently expecting the release of Paris Paris, which is the Tamil remake of the hit Hindi flick Queen. The film is directed by Ramesh Aravind and produced by Manu Kumaran.
Queen, which fetched Kangna Ranaut the coveted Nation Award for Best Acting, was also a big commercial success. The film, directed by Vikas Bhal, starred Kangana Ranaut, Rajkummar Rao and Lisa Haydon in the lead roles. Queen was produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures in association with Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena on a budget of Rs 12.5 crore and it went on to collect Rs 108 crore at the box office.
Kajal also has two films, Komali in Tamil and Rana Rangam in Telugu in her kitty right now.
